Chris Lowney Serves as Guest Speaker for The John Tagliabue ’67 H ’05 Lecture Series

As part of The John Tagliabue ’67 H ’05 Lecture Series, Author and Lecturer Chris Lowney will discuss “Dusty Feet: What a Jesuit Pope Teaches the Rest of Us about Leadership” on Wednesday, October 30, at 6:30 p.m. at the Mac Mahon Student Center. A reception will follow.

Lowney is a former Jesuit seminarian turned managing director for JPMorgan & Co., as well as a renowned author. His most recent book, Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads, shows how the words and deeds of Pope Francis reveal spiritual principles that have prepared him to lead the Church and influence the world.

As part of lecture, Lowney will explore the leadership of this dynamic pope and how his guidance can be a model for us all within our personal and professional lives. In his first book, Heroic Leadership: Best Practices from a 450-Year-Old Company that Changed the World (2005), Lowney reveals the leadership principles that have guided the Jesuits for more than 450 years: self-awareness, ingenuity, love and heroism. In further developing some of the themes from Heroic Leadership, his third book, Heroic Living (2009), combines the proven practices of Ignatian spirituality with Lowney’s business expertise to help each of us discover a purpose in life and develop a personal life strategy to achieve it.

The John Tagliabue ’67 H ’05 Lecture Series was established through a generous gift from Paul Tagliabue H ’05, former National Football League commissioner, in honor of his brother, John Tagliabue, a 1967 graduate of Saint Peter’s and reporter with The New York Times, with the purpose of featuring authors, journalists and writers of interest who are concerned with preserving and renewing the University’s Catholic and Jesuit mission and identity.

This event is presented by The John Tagliabue ’67 H ’05 Lecture Series and the Saint Peter’s University chapter of Alpha Sigma Nu, The Jesuit Honor Society. RSVP to Maria Santiago at
