Courageous Conversations: Speaking Truth in Love
Facilitator: Marg Van Herk-Paradis
While giving and receiving feedback is difficult in the workplace, it is even more challenging in the congregational context where the desire to be kind can outweigh a commitment to honesty and where most of those to whom feedback might be given or from whom feedback might be received are volunteers.
This workshop wrestles with the conundrum of feedback for congregations, exploring the benefits and risks of these courageous conversations alongside concrete strategies for managing such conversations well.
