Thriving Teams: Promoting Good Leadership, Creativity and Accomplishment

AFImagine building and thriving within a community of people whose gifts, talents and skills are valued; a community able to manage and lead through conflict collectively takes risks to accomplish the mission and realize the vision of the congregation.

Team work is important. We’ve all heard the chant – T.E.A.M (Together Everyone Achieves More). While that is a true statement, ministry leaders are often tasked to their individual areas of responsibilities, left to operate in disconnected silos. Over time, these silos begin fostering miscommunication and causing the misalignment of the mission and vision.

Leadership development advisor Aleze Fulbright provides you with a practical framework and actionable tools to evaluate the effectiveness of your current team structures and encourage creativity for achieving thriving teams that make greater impact.


In this workshop, you will:

  • gain an expanded understanding of teams and their functions.
  • learn and spend time discussing the disciplines of teams that thrive.
  • be introduced to tools that foster greater communication among teams.
  • experience engagement in practical applications for developing teams that thrive.

Rev. Dr. Aleze Fulbright is currently the director of leadership development for the Indiana Conference of the United Methodist Church. She has a wealth of experience in leadership development, management, team-building and collaborating, which she uses to develop leaders around the state of Indiana.
