As we live through times of global and national change, we are all too aware of the need for transformative leadership. Please book into “Leading from the Centre”, our next ChaplaincyPlus lunchtime meditation session led by Chris Whittington.
Truly transformative leadership arises from a depth a self-awareness, embodies a rare combination of humility and focused resolve, and is characteristically collaborative and other-centred.
In this session, Chris will explore the radical expression of leadership we see in the life of Christ, where humility and service are one and we are invited to “be of the same mind, with the same love, united in heart, thinking one thing” (Philippians 2:2).
While recognition of the vital importance of humility and awareness struggles to find expression in contemporary leadership training, the Christian contemplative tradition offers an extraordinarily rich pool of wisdom to drink from, a doorway to a profound re-orientation in our understanding of ourselves and our relationships with those around us.
