Description: We all know that deep change in individuals or organizations is rare. Taking a descriptive approach to change, this webinar asks, "In these rare instances of deep change, what happened?" This webinar describes five factors that are present in virtually every instance of deep change. Understanding these five factors can help leaders analyze their own organization to see whether they are leading in ways that can maximize chances for significant change. The webinar also addresses how this descriptive approach to change relates to the role of God, the Spirit and prayer in change, and proposes an approach to change that appreciates both organizational and spiritual ways of framing the change process.
