Leadership Matters: Finding Voice, Connection and Meaning in the 21st Century
- Course Dates: Fri 23 November 2018, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
This day coincides with the launch of the paperback edition of Leadership Matters: Finding Voice, Connection and Meaning in the 21st Century, published by Routledge.
“I used to think that top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that thirty years of good science could address these problems. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy, and to deal with these we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.” – Gus Speth, Adviser to US President Jimmy Carter
The organisers were among the contributors to the book, which was introduced as follows, “In recent years we have seen what could be described as a moral meltdown in the corporate corridors of power… Conventional leadership theories appear to be inadequate to equip those with power to act ethically and responsibly. Leadership Matters brings together an eclectic mix of authors of different faith traditions, to explore what this spiritual and cultural transformation might look like. For too long we have relied on external codes of conduct, which are, at best, blunt instruments for creating ethical practice. So, chapter by chapter, this book examines our interior lives from the perspective of mind, body and soul.”
This day is jointly organised by the Sarum Centre for Leadership Learning and the Centre for Responsible Management at the University of Winchester.
