Speaking and Workshops

I introduce clergy and lay leaders to a new approach to leadership, through engaging and interactive virtual presentations that give leaders a greater sense of their own resources and the possibilities of thriving in these unprecedented times.

Virtual presentations include:

Leadership in Anxious Times (individually or full series)

You already know it—you are leading in anxious times. How can you provide leadership in these days in ways that are life-giving for yourself and for others? These webinars offer some ways to approach leadership in these days. Nowadays you only have to be a little less anxious than those around you to be a better leader and have a better experience of life in these unusual times.

  1. Be the Least Anxious Person in the (Virtual) Room
  2. Let Go of the Outcome When There’s So Much You Can’t Control
  3. Find Strength to Go On When People are Depending on You

Financial Stewardship in the Face of Covid-19 (individually or full series)

Are you wondering how this year will turn out financially for your church? Do you already see a significant shortfall that has you worried? Or do you wonder what will be the long-term budgetary implications of months of  virtual worship? This series will help participants become more thoughtful about the financial challenges their churches may face and bring more calm and creativity to the financial impact of the pandemic.

  1. God, Money and You: A Spirituality of Money for a Pandemic
  2. How to Handle a Money Crisis (or Simply the Fear of One)
  3. How to Ask for Money (Even in a Pandemic)

Thank you for the most marvelous presentation and great interactive webinar we shared together. You are truly inspirational! I can’t thank you enough for all your professional and engaging leadership.

The Rev. Phyllis Bowers, The United Methodist Stewardship Foundation

Margaret did a great job of weaving our goal of providing pastors tools for leading more effectively during anxious times with the realities of Covid-19. Not only was her resource was spot on given the times in which we minister, we also found her great to work with. Her thought provoking questions and attention to detail helped this webinar surpass our expectations.
