Preparing for transformational leadership

This will be held in October 5 -29, 2017 at the Serene Pastures Spirituality Centre, Sri Lanka.

Sr. Elaine Basinger and Jill McCorquodale joined and guided us in finalizing the programme. We reflected on the understanding and practice of leadership in our culture. They helped us clarify the desired outcome from this session.

Policies for Initial Formation

The team spent some time discussing the policies for initial formation. We are still in the process of gathering information, studying and working on the draft policies.  


Joint meeting with Partnership Team

The formation team had two-day joint meeting with the Good Shepherd Asia Pacific Partnership core team February 14 – 15, 2017. We had conversation on how the module on Co-Responsibility for Mission was implemented in the different units. The integration session given by Jill in Sri Lanka was shared by Sashirekha Natarajan and Gendrie Klein-Breteler which helped us to deepen our understanding of the Spiral Dynamics and the 4-Quadrants of Change .  It was a time of  co-learning from one another as we ended with our dreams and hopes as a way forward to the future.
