Ignatian Leadership Conference is coming this July

Posted by Isaac Gardon on Wednesday, June 3, 2015 at 1:30 PM PDT

St. Ignatius of Loyola was a highly effective and inspiring leader. His methods and practices allowed him to establish and lead one of the world's most impactful organizations, the Society of Jesus, and his leadership approach has been used in many different contexts over the past 500+ years.

This July, Magis will host the first ever Ignatian Leadership Conference at Seattle University. Explore the concept of Ignatian Leadership and how to apply and integrate Jesuit values and Ignatian practices into your personal and professional life. Perhaps as an alumnus/na of Jesuit education, you have wondered or struggled with making this a reality. If so, we encourage you to attend!

At this one-day conference, you will join other leaders from various professional walks of life to dialogue and learn tools to become a more effective, authentic Ignatian leader. There will be opportunities to learn about the role of self-awareness and personal discernment in leadership, healthy group decision-making and communal discernment, how to work for social justice and the Common Good as leaders, as well as a chance to discuss the role of love in leading.

We are excited to welcome Fr. Scott Santarosa, S.J., Provincial of the Oregon Province of the Society of Jesus, as our keynote speaker. There will also be an optional Mass to celebrate the feast day of St. Ignatius co-presided by Fr. Tom Lucas, S.J. (Rector of Seattle University Jesuit Community) and Fr. Santarosa.
