Leadership Worldwide: The Christian Conscience Factor.
Thom, Douglas J.
Leadership has always had an important spiritual dimension. This book is about that dimension and how it continues to grow in importance. Leadership, as discussed, includes formal leading within education, government, business, and other fields, and general leading at any level. Part 1 of the book provides a general overview of the condition of the world, and Part 2 reviews the state of leadership. Part 3 explains the importance of Christian conscience in the scheme of things, building on the Educational Leadership and Conscience (TELC) model originally presented in the author's "Educational Management and Leadership: Word, Spirit, and Deed for a Just Society" (1993). Part 4 considers leadership in the future, and includes a discussion of the role of conscience in the financing of education. Some parallels are traced between the educational systems of Hong Kong and North America, and it is argued that education of the future should combine the best of Eastern and Western worlds to find a balance between individualism and collectivism. A "Leadership with Christian Conscience" (TLCC) model is developed that moves beyond educational administration to the general scope of leadership. Six appendixes contain some prayers, poems, and other Christian items including the case study of a successful application of leading with Christian conscience in the reorganization of a Canadian municipality by Bruce Thom and a discussion of the forgiving environment by Daniel Klassen. Two figures illustrate the TELC and TLCC models. (SLD)
