Power, leadership and community living

PIC: Steve Rocha and Social Justice Coordinators from the schools of the Province visited us.

The morning prayer was a rich compilation of material on leadership which began the second day on the theme of Leadership.  Then David opened the day’s workshop, sharing the qualities of leadership and invited the Brothers to reflect on which of the qualities they already possessed, and which ones they are challenged to develop.  Following the session on the qualities, David introduced the idea of power and leadership, identifying three types of power:  coercive, utility and legitimate power.  The interaction between the Brothers was lively and enriching, pointing to the challenge for the future leaders of the Hub and mission communities.

The final session dealt with the growth plan for leaders where the Brothers were encouraged to develop the principles of total quality:

  • Personal and Professional Development
  • Interpersonal Relations
  • Managerial Effectiveness
  • Organisational Productivity


Overall, the Brothers were challenged to assume the role of leadership whether they are a designated, an effective or a psychological leader.  Each of these leaders plays an important part in the life of a community.
