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.
