Leadership

We just finished our leadership symposium and had a great time. My thoughts on reflecting on it are that in most ways poor leadership is a reflection of our own lack in spirituality and shortcomings.

For instance, when we don't delegate, it can be an issue of pride thinking someone else can't do the job as well.

When we talk too much at a meeting and become a distraction, it can be because we want others to like us or think we know a lot.

In other words, if we want to be good leaders, we need to take the initiative to be virtuous. This is why I define "Catholic Leadership" in the following way:

Catholic leadership is leading a group in participating in God’s will by giving up of your self.
