Lowney, author of Heroic Leadership: Best Practices from a 450-Year-Old Company that Changed the World, will explore themes of leadership in his talk and panel discussion with government and business leaders. Lowney believes that the recession has made clear the need for great and principled leadership in businesses, universities, politics, and every kind of organization. His talk will address attributes common to great leaders, such as the willingness to work for a purpose greater than oneself, the freedom to make sound choices, and habits of living that lead to results.
The evening includes a panel discussion featuring moderator Dan Hurley, director of Leadership Cincinnati and local historian. Panel members include: Congressman Steve Driehaus, 1st District Ohio; Kathy Merchant, president and CEO, Greater Cincinnati Foundation; Jim Schwab, Cincinnati market president, U.S. Bank; and Sister of Charity Caroljean Willie, NGO representative United Nations, Sisters of Charity Federation.
