Pope Francis – Grounded Leader of the Week

This week’s Grounded Leader of the Week is Pope Francis. We recognize him as a man of positive emotions – love, generosity, hope, forgiveness. A man of deep curiosity, his willingness to adapt to the changing times, to engage in new thinking, to challenge rigid, old models, has already earned him the title “Troublemaker” from the mainstream media. Washington Post’s Kathleen Parker, in her op ed, describes Pope Francis as “…a paradoxical mix of friend and foe wrapped in a happy package of tough love: friend of the poor, downtrodden and marginalized; foe of the purveyors of a status quo that worships money and throws away the young and old.”

Pope Francis’ leadership can be seen in how he is building nourishing communities, inviting more people into the spiritual tent, and expressing a generosity of spirit – reaching his hand out in love to diverse people who make up the rich fabric of world society. This takes exceptional emotional health, intellectual health, social health, and spiritual health. This is why he is our Grounded Leader of the Week.

Another example of his radical adaptations – he tweets,  @Pontifex.
