Effective leadership is one key element in the success of any group or organization. And with the aim of strengthening leaderships within the Group, Lopez Group Foundation, Incorporated and Lopez Lifelong Wellness conducted a spiritual wellness forum focusing on Soulful Leadership (Leading with Great Soul and Heroism) held last July 6, 2011 at the Meralco Mini Theater in Ortigas, Pasig City.
This was LGFI and Lifelong’s second forum for 2011 and the second on spiritual wellness also. Father Carmelo “Tito” Caluag, Managing Director of 71 Dreams Foundation, was the speaker for this event.
Mr. Rafael M. Alunan III, President of LGFI and Head of Lifelong, discussed leadership in the Lopez Group in his opening remarks. According to him, leadership in the Lopez Group goes beyond the “superior-subordinate” idea. “The kapamilya concept that we promote and subscribe to shows how the Lopez Group values its people…” Alunan added.
During the main talk, Fr. Caluag introduced the audience to the Soulful Leadership or SOLE Program. He highlighted the importance of a mission both as an individual and as a member of a group or organization in becoming a soulful leader. Soulful leading means setting your life within the horizon of a dream larger than life and living a mission-inspired life with great love and great soul.
Fr. Caluag also discussed the framework of SOLE and its unique elements namely: Ignatian Spirituality, Heroic Leadership and Spiral Dynamics. At the end part of the forum, Fr. Caluag engaged the audience in a short workshop on creating a life line. This allowed the audience to reflect on their mission in life, their frustrations and dreams. Fr. Caluag also entertained questions after the workshop.
