PCM master class
offered for clergy


Clergy who have attended a Process Communication Model, or PCM, seminar will be able to further develop their understanding of PCM and how to meet the psychological needs of others through the review provided at the Master Class.
This day of review will cover the following concepts:
Connecting: Participants will review the most effective strategies for connecting with people in their preferred perception. This will include practice in agility between different personality types and stamina to maintain effective communication with types with whom we struggle.
Motivating and Self-Care: We will explore strategies for motivating teams and individuals from their preferred psychological need. This time will also be used to make personal commitments to self-care.
Assessing and Facing Conflict: Participants will review the 6 distress sequences and be asked to produce strategies for inviting out of distress.
Clergy and church workers who participate in PCM Master Class will be able to connect with their congregations, motivate people where they are, and avoid distress in self and others. They will develop a self-care plan that includes understanding their own failure mechanisms and self-care needs. Clergy and church workers will be able to use their skills in worship, pastoral care, strategic planning, staff relations, managing and recruiting volunteers, and more.
Each participant of the PCM review day will be granted 30 minutes of personal coaching with the trainer, Rev. Adam Barlow-Thompson (pictured here), which can be used at their discretion within 60 days of the training.
