Since July 1 we have been using the name Restructuring Phase 2 to describe the work being done across the IC to put our new organizational structure to work. Bob Gleason, an independent consultant from Milwaukee, WI, will be working with us for the next few months as we transition to our new structure. Bob’s professional passion is organizational change management and he will be assisting us with process development, clarifying new roles and responsibilities and the communications aspects of the changes we are making. He will be leading the Phase 2 Restructuring Work Group through various tasks and working with other teams of people addressing the impact of restructuring. Already his help has made positive impact around the building.

Bob has spent 12 years with a business and technology consulting firm in Chicago before leaving to work independently. He prefers to work with faith based and not-for-profit organizations. He has worked extensively in the South Wisconsin District with President Wille’s staff and congregations in the District. He has been a leader in the congregational revitalization work in the District as well. He and his wife and two college-age children are members of Brookfield Lutheran Church, where he is a Bible study leader and Elder.

Bob welcomes any of your comments or questions you post to this blog regarding restructuring.
