The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted individuals and organizations around the world during 2020. Praxis Labs distributed an article in April 2020 presenting a metaphor that helped to frame what leaders and organizations would face in surviving the blizzard, navigating the winter, and strategizing for the forthcoming “little ice age” that may be a new normal in the months and years ahead due to the impact of the coronavirus. While mission statements will likely remain the same for most businesses, nonprofit organizations, churches, governments, and other organizations throughout the various sectors of society, the ways that organizations go about implementing their missions may be drastically altered in this upcoming season. This course will provide a timely framework to guide leaders to adjust to the new normal by developing transformational strategies for resilience.
The framework, which will be supplemented by timely theological, scholarly, and practical resources, will guide leaders to discern next steps for their organizations by answering Patrick Lencioni’s six critical questions: Why do we exist? How do we behave? What do we do? How will we succeed? What is most important now? Who must do what?
