How 21st Century Businesspeople and Executives
can Learn from 16th Century Jesuits
Presented by Saint Peter's College Regent, Chris Lowney
(author of Heroic Leadership and A Vanished World)
Wednesday, May 3, 2006,
St. Francis Xavier Church
55 West 15th Street,
Chris Lowney, formerly a managing director at JP Morgan & Co. and a former Jesuit, draws on history and experience to present self-awareness techniques that made the Jesuits the most successful company of their kind and that can still serve professionals and executives today. Chris will talk about effective practices for remaining recollected in busy business environments and for making high-quality business decisions. His provocative thesis is that Jesuit spirituality can offer not only spiritual sustenance but, in many cases, better bottom line results! Please join us for this lively discussion.
Chris’s presentation will launch the Forum for Spirituality in the Workplace, a new initiative at St. Francis Xavier to promote the spiritual development of business professionals and organizational leaders. The Forum will provide presentations and seminars on a continuing basis, focusing on the spirituality of work, ethical business issues, and other relevant topics. It will arrange discussions, book reviews, and fellowship/networking opportunities for interested professionals and will explore effective ways to advance the concept of a “community of leaders.” The Forum will seek to identify, and collaborate with, models that already exist in other churches and organizations, thereby raising awareness of workplace spirituality on a broader scale.
