    Participants Needed for Research Study

    Seeking Leaders who Self-Report a Spiritual Transformation and their Approach to Leadership

    This study is focused primarily on capturing and analyzing the stories organizational leaders tell about their spiritual transformation and approach to leadership. Once these stories have been collected and analyzed, I am interested in seeing if there are common components or elements in the careers of spiritually transformed leaders. Ultimately, I would like to see if these stories follow a pattern, similar to the ones we know make for successful narratives, and therefore see if they can be used in the future to create a new kind of leadership development that may help usher a new leadership pipeline.
    • The interview will focus on the spiritual transformational journey, the story of how the participant approach leadership based on this transformation.
    • The interview will last between 60 and 90 minutes and will be scheduled via Zoom and during a time convenient for them.
