Transitions and Thresholds
August 24, 2022
In her book How to Lead When You Don’t Know Where You’re Going, author Susan Beaumont discusses the liminal spaces many of us are facing.
She writes, How do you lead an organization stuck between an ending and a new beginning – when the old way of doing things no longer works but a way forward is not yet clear? Beaumont calls such in-between times liminal seasons – threshold times when the continuity of tradition disintegrates, and uncertainty about the future fuels doubt and chaos. In a liminal season, it simply is not helpful to pretend we understand what needs to happen next.
