A practical guidebook about how to deal with change within the church.
Using examples from her teaching and professional lives, Lorraine Ste-Marie bridges, in a very practical way, organizational theory, language theory and authentic personal development, examining the difficult process of change and how individuals and institutions tend to resist it.
Ste-Marie shows how the very language we use influences our experience of change. As a woman working within the structures of the post-conciliar Church in North America, she has much to say on this topic. Despite the complexity of its subject, this is a practical book about how to work with, manage, guide and cope with change at the personal and institutional level, bringing together current theory and practice on change management.
