Pivoting Toward Relationships: A Webinar for Leaders
This webinar is sponsored by Parish Success Group and Saint Mary’s Press.
Webinar will be held: Thursday, Apr 23, 2020 at 1:00 PM EST
This time of social distancing has only further highlighted what our research at Springtide Research Institute has been confirming, it’s time that faith leaders make a pivot in their programming and operations and start leading with relationships, especially when it comes to young people.
The data from the newest study, Belonging: Reconnecting America’s Loneliest Generation, is clear: young people feel more alone, isolated, and disconnected than ever. However, the data also revealed the important role that trusted adults have in creating relationships that lead to belonging. What was once facilitated through programs, now must be done through conversations.
In this webinar, Dr. Josh Packard will walk through some of the key findings from the study and articulate the shift that needs to occur in order to stop declining programs and build communities of young people where there is a true sense of belonging and connection.
Leadership during this shift is imperative as it will require as much sophistication and innovation as any traditional program. Dr. Packard will share data-driven, practical solutions for helping to lead and sustain the change that is necessary.
