Pope Francis has captured the attention of the media and Catholics all over the world with his seemingly counterintuitive approach to leadership. In Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads, best selling author and former Jesuit seminarian Chris Lowney offers an in depth look at how Pope Francis Jesuit training directly impacted the various leadership roles he has held as priest, bishop, cardinal, and now Pope and what his past leadership actions can tell us about how he is likely to lead in the future.
From choosing to live in a simple apartment instead of the papal palace to washing the feet of men and women in a youth detention center, Pope Francis’s actions contradict behaviors expected of a modern leader. Chris Lowney, a former Jesuit seminarian turned Managing Director for JP Morgan & Co., shows how the pope’s words and deeds reveal spiritual principles that have prepared him to lead the Church and influence our world—a rapidly-changing world that requires leaders who value the human need for love, inspiration, and meaning. Drawing on interviews with people who knew him as Father Jorge Bergoglio, SJ, Lowney challenges assumptions about what it takes to be a great leader. In so doing, he reveals the “other-centered” leadership style of a man whose passion is to be with people rather than set apart. Lowney offers a stirring vision of leadership to which we can all aspire in our communities, churches, companies, and families.
