More than a ‰ÛÏhow-to‰Û leadership guide, Principled Ministry: A Guidebook for Catholic Church Leaders offers real-life examples of principled ministers who are serving the Catholic Church and invites readers to incorporate these disciplines into their own leadership style. Expanding on The Collaborative Leader, their foundational work on collaborative ministry, these bestselling authors offer thirty principles for effective, spiritually healthy, mission-focused ministry. These disciplines include:Set boundariesFacilitate, don‰Ûªt dominate
Be comfortable with conflict
Sofield and Juliano present real-world stories, compelling commentary, and follow-up exercises that reinforce and help the reader apply what has been learned. Arranged into five chapters, the principles are explored in light of the best servant-leadership theory and praxis and situated within a variety of contexts and ministerial settings in the Catholic Church. An ancillary workbook, available for free download, helps both the apprentice and well-seasoned Church leader immediately apply the lessons and incorporate the disciplines presented in this eminently practical and vitally needed book.
