Description

In 2009, the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR)—an organization representing 300 orders of sisters in the United States—suddenly gained wide attention following a critical doctrinal assessment issued by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Many became interested in the way the LCWR and its members exercised leadership. One of their members described it as “transformational leadership”—a “way-of-being-in-in-the-world.” To better understand this way of leadership, LCWR regularly conducts interviews with some of the most engaging and passionate of contemporary thinkers.

In this volume, interviews with eighteen theologians, psychologists, educators, and religious leaders from various fields and disciplines share their wisdom about a way of leadership able to meet the deep challenges of today’s world. Transformational Leadership offers the opportunity to learn from notables such as Walter Brueggemann, Judy Cannato, Joan Chittister, OSB, Constance FitzGerald, OCD, Donald Goergen, OP, Marty Linsky, and Margaret Wheatley.
