Msgr. Richard Liddy, Dr. Margaret Benefiel and Don Readlinger
The Micah Institute for Business and Economics
and the Center for Catholic Studies
presents: A conversation with Dr. Margaret Benefiel on “The Soul of a Leader in Tough Economic Times.”
Tuesday, October 27, 2009 at 7 p.m.
Jubilee Hall Auditorium, Seton Hall University
In an environment where leaders are rewarded for their drive, decisiveness, productivity, and long hours, the soul of the leader may get short shrift. As a result, harm can come to the leader and, ultimately, to the organization this individual serves. Challenging the assumptions that effective leaders must sell their souls, cut corners, cook the books, and let go of their vision, a new model of leadership will be offered.
Margaret Benefiel, Ph.D., teaches at Andover Newton Theological School in Boston and at the Milltown Institute in Dublin, Ireland. For the 2003 - 2004 academic year, she held the O'Donnell Chair at the Milltown Institute. CEO of ExecutiveSoul.com, Dr. Benefiel also has served as Chair of the Academy of Management's Management, Spirituality, and Religion Group. Over 500 executives, managers, and other leaders have participated in her seminars and courses. She is the author of Soul At Work: Spiritual Leadership in Organizations (Seabury Books, 2005) and The Soul of a Leader: Finding Your Path to Success and Fulfillment (Crossroad, 2008), and has also written for The Leadership Quarterly, Management Communication Quarterly, Managerial Finance, Journal of Organizational Change Management, Organization, Personal Excellence, America, Presence, The Way, Studies in Spirituality, Radical Grace, and Faith at Work.
"The Soul of a Leader in Tough Economic Times" is co-sponsored by Centesimus Annus Pro Pontifice, the Pontifical Organization founded by Pope John Paul II.
