It’s a lot of fun to have friends and colleagues who are also writers and in this series we want to introduce some of them to you.
In our conversation with Tod Bolsinger, author of Canoeing the Mountains: Christian Leadership in Uncharted Territory, talks with us about how to lead when you don’t know what to do. He quotes a pastor who told him, “I think I can learn adaptive change but I’m not sure I can survive it.” In this episode, Dr. Bolsinger reminds us that we can grow our leadership resilience through reflection, relationships and a rule of life.
We hope you’ll listen in.
