"The Vocation of the Business Leader"

Video
A Talk by Dr. Michael Naughton
Good leaders are meaning-makers. They excite vision and mission, encourage engagement, and empower others to think critically and make good judgments.  Michael Naughton, Ph.D., M.B.A., will explore decision-making in light of a faith tradition that encourages contemplation and action. Dr. Naughton is the director of the Center for Catholic Studies at the University of St. Thomas (Minnesota) and former director of the John A. Ryan Institute for Catholic Social Thought at the University of St. Thomas. He is the co-author and co-editor of nine books and more than 50 articles. He also helped coordinate and write The Vocation of the Business Leader issued by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, which has been translated into 15 languages.

Millennials Will Save us All

Video

Todd Corley ’91 and John Zogby ’70 discuss their research on the Millennial Generation, also known as Gen Y. According to the Pew Research Center, this group is “racially diverse, economically stressed and politically liberal,” and its members are building their own networks through social media rather than through political parties, organized religion or marriage. Corley is the former chief diversity officer of Abercrombie & Fitch, and author of the recently released book Fitch Path – A Cautionary Tale About A Moose, Millennials, Leadership and Transparency. Zogby is the inaugural director of the Keenan Center for Entrepreneurship at the Madden School of Business, and author of the recently released book First Globals: Understanding, Managing, and Unleashing Our Millennial Generation.

"Making the Case for Principled Leadership"

Be inspired by the real-life stories of three notable alums developing case studies for the Global Jesuit Case Series (GJCS).

    James Grabowski '82, VP at AMIDEAST, a non-profit that strengthens mutual understanding between Americans and peoples of the Middle East and North Africa;
    Joe Savage '84, Executive VP and CFO of Victaulic, a worldwide leader in pipe joining systems, and;
    Jim Joseph '83, dean of the Madden School and former CEO of Oneida Ltd., the number one tabletop brand in North America.

Though dramatically different in content, the studies are all international in scope and share common attributes associated with the GJCS - ethics, social justice, cultural respect, compassion, moral leadership -- that are rooted in Jesuit values.

"Beyond Demographics: Who We Are and The Way We'll Be"

John Zogby '70

John Zogby '70, founder of the Zogby Poll and Zogby Companies, presents "Beyond Demographics: Who We Are and The Way We'll Be."

Americans are more than a compilation of demographics and regional cultures. We are now able to freely choose what we are interested in and with whom we choose to hang out. We are simply forming our own tribes, communities of interest that transcend geographical boundaries. In his new book, "We Are Many, We Are One," Zogby closely examine 11 neo-tribes that define most of us and explain his six year journey with Tribal Analytics to discover these and many other tribes. This has great implications for many different sectors and for the political process.
