Leadership as Dying & Rising: A Paschal Journey Worthy of Lent
February 27, 2018
School leaders encounter many challenges and opportunities navigating the complex demands of families, students, teachers, and the local community. The penitential season of Lent is a helpful lens through which to view leadership as modeling Christ-like behaviors, participating in the paschal mystery, and embracing what is no doubt Catholic change theory. As John Henry Cardinal Newman once said, “To live is to change and to be perfect is to have changed often.”
