The Leadership for Dignity of All: Thom's "Resolved Christianity."
Thom, Douglas J.
This book explores the spiritual dimension of leadership. Its discussion of leadership includes formal leading within education. The book has six chapters. The first two chapters trace the development of leadership thought/theory and practice and discuss phenomena that are present on a continuing basis in society and particularly within organizations. Chapter 3 considers the basics of Christianity and includes a general definition of a Christian. The chapter concludes with a discussion that links Christianity with the global society, education, and leadership. The fourth chapter traces the Thom's Leadership with Christian Conscience (TLCC) Manifesto from its beginning. The chapter focuses on the concept of leadership, recognizing that everyone educates his/her conscience, that everyone can lead, and that integrity and dignity are guidelines. Chapter 5 explains how reflection, evolution, creation, and revelation all are shaping what is to come. The last chapter presents a paradigm for conducting Christian leadership with dignity. A references section presents selected letters, a description of an international network of organizations in the field of Educational Administration/Leadership, the symbols of the Easter season, and a bibliography of the author's writings. (Contains a name index, a subject index, and approximately 400 references.) (RJM)
