How does one rise like the phoenix out of the ashes of man’s inhumanity toward man, whether experienced personally or as a bystander to atrocity? Dr Shann Ferch of Gonzaga University’s internationally known Leadership Studies doctoral program takes us into the trenches of humanity’s shadow self in order to learn the pathway out through forgiveness and the transformative power of embracing the philosophy of servant leadership…as Ghandi did…as Mandela did…as Tutu and Martin Luther King Jr. did. The world calls for many to put on the mantle of servant leadership. According to Dr. Ferch, we need a different kind of leadership model within our families, communities, organizations, institutions, and government—leaders who are also healers and know how to deeply serve humanity in overcoming self-indulgence, the need to dominate and control, forsake the common good for the sake of self-interest, and instill within others “self-worth, responsibility, and liberty.” Join me and Dr. Shann Ferch as we journey through shadow toward hope and healing actions we can all take in this “age of atrocity.”
