The Courage to Lead
Heft, James L.
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v7 n3 p294-307 Mar 2004
This article explores the relationship between courage and leadership as it applies to Catholic educators. Scripture, literature, contemporary leadership theory, and modern culture are used in the development of an approach to leadership that is both theologically sound and culturally relevant. The author criticizes popular views of leadership, especially the work of Stephen Covey, in articulating a Catholic worldview and a functional leadership theory for Catholic educators.
