Person Centred Leadership Experience



Generative Communities

Fifth Experience:
Person Centred Leadership

Our colloquium on Generative Communities has borne fruit in this fifth experience on Person Centred Leadership in Community for monastic women and men in four encounters.

This facilitated day will consist of four encounters comprising scripture, presentation, shared response, poetry and group activity.

The  four encounters of the day will be developed from a colloquium to be held 6-7 January 2015, Atchison Kansas, especially the paper on “Participation in a Shared Project”.
