Heroic Leadership Principles “We’re all leaders and we’re leading all the time, well or poorly.” “Leadership springs from within. It’s about who I am as much as what I do.” “Leadership is not an act. It is my life, a way of living.” “I never complete the task of becoming a leader. It is an on- going process.” Lowney, Chris. Heroic Leadership. Loyola Press. 2005
4 Pillars of Jesuit Leadership Self-Awareness Ingenuity Love Heroism
Ignatian Leadership at Saint Joseph’s University Ignatian leadership is a transformational process whereby an individual or group assists another individual or group in discerning God’s will in a specific context, and facilitates its implementation, always seeking the magis. An Ignatian leader, regardless of religious affiliation, understands and appreciates the rich gifts of the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius Loyola and strives to: Be a Contemplative in Action - discerning  God’s will, always seeking the ‘magis’  Facilitate a shared, hopeful vision through the process of Ignatian communal discernment  Grow in self-knowledge and ‘Ignatian indifference’  through a daily ‘Examen’  Exemplify ‘humbled excellence’ Have an honest love for those he/she leads and serves Realize and engage with the challenges of the world and actively works to address them
Imagine a world where the principles of Ignatian Leadership were used – How might that world be different?
