Leadership and the Rule: 19 July - 31 July 2020

Registration deadline is 28 February 2020.
The language of the course is English.

Management training for today’s monastic leaders


Unprecedented developments are changing our monasteries and making leadership much more demanding. Outside pressures, inside challenges and cultural changes are making monastic leaders wonder:

who can help us to understand, distinguish and decide?
what approaches and tools are available to help us deal with these challenges?
how can we initiate in good time needed changes without losing our identity?

We can help!

“Leadership and the Rule of Saint Benedict” is a joint educational project of the universities of St. Gallen in Switzerland and Sant’Anselmo in Rome. We have assembled a faculty of international experts and experienced leaders from the Benedictine family who will help you to frame the challenges facing your monastery and show pragmatic ways to handle them. The first course took place in 2014. Based on the experience gained, the course could be tailored more and more to the needs of the participants in the following years. In the meantime, about 150 people have completed the course. By the end of the program, you will be equipped to shape your best response to those challenges.

    Please pay the greatest attention to the text below, which concerns a new attempt at fraud circulating by e-mail, this time addressed to the Abbot of Poblet. It is obvious that this e-mail was not sent by Father Peter. Please be very careful with these messages/emails so as not to fall victim to this umpteenth swindle. In case of doubt, please contact the OCist General House.
