Description of Offering

The Soul of Leadership is a program that began in 2012 in Boston with Margaret Benefiel, Executive Director of the Shalem Institute. The Soul of Leadership is designed for leaders from various sectors (businesses, non-profits, churches, etc.).

The Soul of Leadership recognizes that leaders today face particularly difficult challenges. The commitment to inspire others while also increasing productivity and balancing the needs of the organization can leave leaders feeling depleted. Long hours and countless demands often result in a deep need for renewal.

This 18-month program helps leaders integrate spiritual heart practices with leadership realities in order to more truly embody their vocational path. Through individual and communal activities, participants engage in a variety of contemplative practices, while learning strategies to address some of their most pressing leadership challenges.

The Soul of Leadership includes four residencies, each featuring a different leadership focus, supplemented by reading, reflection and spiritual companionship. If you are interested in learning more about The Soul of Leadership, please visit the Shalem Institute's website.
