Christian Approaches to Leadership in the Public Square
- Course Dates: Mon 23 April, 2:00 pm to Thu 26 April, 2:00 pm
This module will make a methodological, hermeneutical and theological study of the potential impact of Christian approaches to leadership on and within secular institutions at a time when religion is being marginalized and faith is under attack.
It will encourage reflection on the current place of the Christian faith in the public square and will evaluate existing and emerging models of engagement between Christianity and the prevailing secular and pluralist culture of contemporary society, in e.g. business, education, and politics through the framework of business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
The connection between personal faith and leadership in different workplace contexts, including organisations run by or on behalf of the Church, will be explored to enable participants to analyse their own leadership practice and the ethical issues that they may face. Potential areas of conflict, both internal and external, will be examined to illustrate this. How far should a leader’s personal faith influence the development of the ethos that may be felt to be desirable?
An integral part of the module will be opportunities for reflection by the participants on their own experience of the relationship between the leadership of a secular organisation, values and personal faith.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
