Online Webinar
Thursday, April 11, 2013, 12:30 – 1:30pm

Since the 1500’s the Jesuit order has been training people to meet emerging needs in a global marketplace.  They have trained leaders for 4 centuries who have had to adapt to changing circumstances around the world and they were trained to be mobile. Their genius is that Ignatius Loyola understood that you train people from the inside out.  If you are going to be a leader you need to understand yourself and the desires of those you seek to lead.  It takes self knowledge or self awareness and social awareness in today’s language of emotional intelligence. If you are going to be a leader you need to make decisions and in the language of Ignatius it is about a discernment process.  It is based on seeing and listening, picking up patterns and only through ongoing reflection does one cultivate the skills of leadership.  It also takes a trusted guide or guides to support your navigation through the challenges of work and life.  This webinar will explore the relevance of faith to business practice in a particularly Jesuit fashion.  It will challenge the listener/participant to appropriate the strategies for their own leadership journey.
