Self-Aware Leadership: How to Be Agile and Ignatian


Dan Gallagher, Senior Vice President, Operations and Client Experiences at Spectra by Comcast Spectacor and author of The Self-Aware Leader

Technology, politics, social issues and competition are all driving change faster than we’ve ever seen. Organizations are faced with pivoting to remain relevant but innovation is also creating new norms that challenge values. This session will present a model for driving increased self-awareness at an individual and organizational level to help navigate change and stay true to yourself.

Dan’s passion and expertise lies in helping organizations and leaders grow while remaining self-aware. Through his 17+ years working at Comcast combined with his research and experience writing The Self-Aware Leader, Dan has helped shape the direction of organizational strategies and individual careers by leveraging principles that reflect the core teachings of Saint Ignatius.
  


Everyone Leads: Wet Socks, Nightfever, and Ignatian Insights on Leadership

Chris Lowney, Best-selling author, leadership consultant and board chair of Catholic Health Initiatives

Chris Lowney will challenge our assumptions about leadership and invite each of us to embrace his or her leadership opportunity and responsibility. He will tell stories from the pre-Papal ‚Äčlife of Pope Francis in order to explore a "case study" of leadership, and will also draw from his newest book, Everyone Leads: How to Revitalize the Catholic Church.

Mr. Lowney draws from two decades of change-management experience in the finance industry and in the non-profit sector. He chairs the board of Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the nation’s largest healthcare/hospital systems with some $ 19 billion in assets. He is a one-time Jesuit seminarian who later served as a Managing Director of J.P. Morgan & Co in New York, Tokyo, Singapore and London until leaving the firm in 2001.

In addition to Everyone Leads Chris Lowney has written several books. Heroic Leadership, a # 1 ranked bestseller of the CBPA, was named a finalist for a 2003 Book of the Year Award from ForeWord magazine was named to the Commandant of the Marine Corps recommending reading list. He is also author of Heroic Living, and A Vanished World and Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads.
