To celebrate this event, all members of the Seton Hall community are invited to a talk given by Chris Lowney, on Thursday, April 21, from 4 to 5 p.m., in the Beck Rooms. His topic is "From Darwin to Discernment: How Servant Leaders Make Quality Decisions at Seton Hall."
The Tenth Annual Servant Leadership Day will be held on Thursday, April 21, and is a celebration of Seton Hall University's commitment to forming students as "servant leaders in a global society."
Chris Lowney's interactive talk will explore the leadership implications of the chaotic, volatile, and uncertain world in which we must all now live and work. In particular, Chris will urge a "new culture of leadership," where we each embrace our leadership opportunity, sharpen our individual and team decision-making skills, and become more reflective. This "new culture of leadership" will make Seton Hall into a model of servant leadership in action. To make his case, Chris will draw on an idiosyncratic stew of sources including Seton Hall's founder, McKinsey and Co, Robert Greenleaf, Mike Tyson, Pope Francis, and Chris's own experience in investment banking and healthcare.
