Speaker: Marvin Peláez (University Abat Oliba/Adler-Aquinas Institute): “The moral psychology of leadership: Not dog whispering”
Leadership is a professional and personal activity as well as an academic discipline. The increased presence of leadership programs across universities and industry provide one way to gauge its importance in society. Programs vary by emphasis placed on aspects of leadership. However, all are tied to some understanding of human nature. This paper chronicles an ongoing observational study of a team-based development and implementation of a pilot leadership program in a U.S. federal agency. It provides an account of “lessons learned” on the challenges, reactions, and acceptance on the incorporation of St. Thomas Aquinas’s philosophy of human nature on leadership and the philosophical doctrine of the one and the many.
Livestream of video from the Conference will be at the Holy Apostles College and Seminary YouTube Channel.
