Join us at the EWTG July mini-course to develop a better understanding of contemplative leadership.
Leadership today requires a broad range of skills, including the ability to anticipate, innovate, question, and adapt. If we consider that the most important leadership tool is first and foremost the leader’s self, it becomes critical to assist leaders in becoming more conscious of who they are, as well as the motivations influencing their leadership. When leaders become fully present and develop the awareness to notice subtle patterns of their own and other’s behavior, group dynamics and organizational processes, they are better able to make decisions and manage situations simply because they see details and what is really going on more clearly.

Among other things, contemplative leadership enlarges one’s capacity for awareness, living with the unknowns of change, managing negative emotions, staying grounded in one’s values and purpose, and transforming what is no longer serving. By deepening awareness and loosening the grip of old habits, leaders are freed up to think, relate, and act in new and more effective ways both individually and collectively.

-Consortium for Contemplative Leadership

Contemplative Leadership

Leading with integrity requires congruence of a person’s values and who they are at work. Seton Cove's multi-level leadership programs help those in leadership positions identify and eventually address any dissonance between their personal identity and how they express it in their work life, making them more effective leaders. One of those programs is the Leadership Pilgrimage, which operates under the following guiding principles:

  • Effective leadership flows from the identity and integrity of the person.
  • Every person has gifts to offer to the practice of leadership.
  • Leaders lead from within, not from external expectations.
  • Authentic leadership demands spiritual depth and centeredness.
  • Spiritual depth and centeredness flow from a commitment to contemplative practices.
