Where: The Old Palace, Deansway, Worcester
For licensed clergy in the Diocese of Worcester.
During the day we will explore together some of the key
reasons why this aspect of ministry is often challenging. We do not believe
that there is any universal ‘solution’ that will make such challenges go away.
We do, however, believe that we can all grow in the wisdom that we bring to how
we shape our days, weeks and years. The aim of the training event is to
stimulate precisely such growth in wisdom. It will do so by helping us to
understand our current practices, offering new perspectives and ideas, and
helping us identify practical next steps.
This event has been designed and led by David Sims and
Jonathan Kimber. David is Emeritus Professor of Organisational Behaviour,
Cass Business School, City University of London, and a worshipper in Malvern.
He and Jonathan share a dissatisfaction with some common time management
techniques, and also a belief in the importance and possibility of wisdom in
this area. The training is limited to 12 participants and places will be
allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
As an integral part of this training, following the event on
May 23rd, each participant will have three individual follow-on
conversations with a
Learning Partner, over the following few months. The purpose of the latter is
to help discern, apply and embed good ways forward. The people acting as
Learning Partners are largely drawn from the pool of MDR Review Consultants,
and will have received specific training for this role.
One participant at the Time Wisdom event said of it:
“This has been a fruitful day as it has helped me look through the clutter of
my diary to hold the balance between clear cut and responsive time sharing.” Another said “Practical and prayerfully and
carefully prepared and presented. Well
worth making the time to be involved.”
