The Soul of Leadership “Mini”: Transforming the Organization’s Soul
A 10-week program led by Dr. Margaret Benefiel and Rev. Susie Allen
February 7 - April 22, 2014
Organizations, like individuals, have souls that require tending. This program will combine insights from the field of spirituality and spiritual formation with insights from management and organizational studies to address such questions as: What do spiritual health and spiritual growth look like in organizations? Does organizational spiritual development parallel individual spiritual development? How can spiritual health and spiritual growth be facilitated in an organization? How do organizational spiritual growth and concern for social justice interrelate? How does the spirituality of an organization get named, nurtured, and sustained over time?
In this 10-week program, participants will:
1) Assess their organization’s challenges in light of its deepest values.
2) Learn to access and nurture their organization’s soul.
3) Learn to apply theories of development and change to their organizations.
4) Reflect on their own theories of organizational spiritual health and growth.
5) Reflect on their own spiritual awareness and resources in relation to their particular organizational challenges.
6) Experiment with practicing and teaching organizational spiritual development.
We will meet in person twice - February 7 and April 22 (two day-long meetings at a retreat center in the greater Boston area). In between, there will be three in-person small group meetings, and online community.
This Soul of Leadership “mini” program is designed to provide participants with an opportunity to “taste and see” the learning and opportunities for transformation that Margaret Benefiel and Susie Allen offer in their longer programs.
