The Seventh Annual Servant Leadership Day  

Speaker, Chris LowneyThe Seventh Annual Servant Leadership Day will be held on Wednesday, April 4, and is a celebration of Seton Hall University's commitment to forming students as "servant leaders in a global society." Sponsored by the Center for Vocation and Servant Leadership and the Office of Mission & Ministry, it is made possible by the generous benefaction of Colleen and Hank D'Alessandro, Regent. Its purpose is to provide inspiration to the Center's Servant Leader Scholars and to all the University constituencies dedicated to the principles and practice of "servant leadership."

To celebrate this event, all members of the Seton Hall community are invited to a talk given by Chris Lowney, on Wednesday, April 4, from 4 to 5 p.m., in the Chancellor's Suite. His topic is "21st Century Servant Leaders: How They Think and What They Do."

Chris Lowney will challenge our stereotypes about leadership and develop the counterintuitive case that, in fact, everyone leads. Moving beyond "bumper sticker" rhetoric, he will discuss the mindset and behaviors that characterize a servant leader in today's challenging, volatile environments in business and other fields. He will also tackle the seldom-broached topic of leadership and suffering.

Chris Lowney was a Jesuit seminarian and later served as a Managing Director of JP Morgan & Co in Singapore, Tokyo, London, and New York. He currently chairs the board of Catholic Health Initiatives, one of the largest healthcare systems in the US, with more than 100 hospitals and annual revenues of more than $16 billion.

He is the author of five books, including Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads, and the bestselling, Heroic Leadership, which has been translated into eleven languages and named to the recommended reading list of the US Commandant of the Marine Corps.
