About the Sacred Heart Administrator Seminar: Spiritual Leadership (Part A)
…for Division Heads and Heads of School new to their roles since 2010

Part A cost: $150.00
Administrators in SH Schools accept the unique role as the spiritual leader for their school or division. This one-day gathering, as a prelude to the Roots That Give Us Wings conference, provides an opportunity for new administrators to explore their role as spiritual leaders.

This seminar will enable administrators new to their administrative role since 2010:

 ·         to deepen their understanding of the spirituality, which undergirds administrative practice in the SOPHIAN tradition;

 ·         to explore specific ways to integrate this contemplative outlook into the tasks, attitudes, dispositions, actions and decisions associated with your role as leader;

 ·         to establish relationships with colleagues across the Network;

 ·         and to reflect on this unique role in the holy place where Philippine established the first school in the United States and where she is buried.
