Shann Ray Ferch, Gonzaga University professor of leadership studies, will discuss “The Crisis of Leadership is a Crisis of Love: Servant-Leadership, Gratitude and Forgiveness in American Life” in a free, public lecture later this month.
According to a press release, Ferch will explore servant-leadership and its role in bringing understanding and reconciliation to political, personal and social upheaval. Drawing from his recent book “Forgiveness and Power in the Age of Atrocity: Servant Leadership as a Way of Life,” Ferch will discuss how personal moral responsibility and one’s obligation to the well-being of others can be nurtured and affirmed in these complex and challenging times.
Ferch’s work regarding leadership, organizational culture, and the human will to forgive and reconcile has appeared in scientific journals and international academic venues across the glob, including the Cory Aquino Center for Leadership in the Philippines.
The Nov. 15 event take place in the McCarthey Athletic Center’s Herak Club Room. It will begin with social time at 10 a.m., with the lecture and Q&A from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Parking is free in the lot immediately south of McCarthey Athletic Center (801 N. Cincinnati St.).
