Learning Experiences 

Current Offerings:


Clara is currently offering Leading Adaptively, a three-session Zoom course for clergy and lay leaders from any denomination.  This is a partnership with the United Church of Canada and Trinity Wall Street. Learn more about Leading Adaptively.


These courses aren’t just lectures.


Clara’s courses on leadership are holistic learning experiences, where we learn to see our daily experiences with new eyes, and discover powerful skills we didn’t know we already have.

Clara studies the pedagogy of leadership - how to teach leadership so the theory comes alive in our daily lives.  Clara has us thinking about what it feels like to lead, and she facilitates the sessions so everyone gets involved - even on Zoom! 

She’s also deeply rooted in the Christian faith, and helps everyone to feel how the Holy Spirit is at work in and through us.  It’s really uplifting and encouraging, even in this period of high burnout among clergy coming out of the pandemic.

Clara assumes that everyone in these courses already has skills for leadership, and that no one comes like a “blank slate” knowing nothing.  But even Olympic athletes are always honing their skills. 

Like a great coach, Clara accommodates a wide diversity of experience in her classes.  For the brilliant leader, and the anxious novice, and the burned-out parish priest, there is an invitation to a life-giving, faithful new practice here.

Feedback from prior participants:

“The case study reaffirmed and proved that all things are possible if we can identify and respond to what it is that people want for themselves and if they are involved in their own transformation.” 
"Rev. Clara is a brilliant teacher, leader and facilitator. She is able to bring her excellent research in the world of academia beyond just academics. Her work both written and in-person is extremely accessible and inclusive. She publishes and leads in a very informative and yet down to earth way that is inclusive of everyone, including practitioners like myself who don't have formal theological or ministry training and don't work in academia."

-Adam Cresswell, Executive Director of The Hub Community Network
