If an organization lasts 1,500 years, as Benedictine monasticism has, you must surmise that the founder knew something about leadership. In this course, Empower Yourself; Empower Others: Six stories of Benedict to unleash the leader in you, Joan Chittister outlines the basic principles of leadership, and, using stories from the life of Benedict, explores if or how he applied these principles and how you can do the same. The course includes six videos by Sister Joan, guided readings, and reflection questions. “It is not necessary to be in an official position in order to be a leader,” explains Sister Joan. “It is only necessary to be brave, to be honest and to be clear about where you are going and why. Leaders inspire people to lead themselves.”
