October-December 2022: Vocation of a Business Leader
For the final three months of the year, the round tables are discussing and dissecting the document, Vocation of a Business Leader. The group has been led by Dr. John McCormick from Newman University as they have discussed the practical principles of business.
Dr. McCormick broke down the document into five sections:
Seeing the World of Business (15-28)
Making Judgements (29-59)
"Witness of Actions": Taking Aspiration into Practice (64-84)
When considering if the work is good, there are four questions to ask:
As a Christian business leader, am I promoting human dignity and the common good in my sphere of influence?
Am I supporting the culture of life; justice; international regulations; transparency; civic. environmental, and labour standards; and the fight against corruption?
Am I promoting the integral development of the person and respect of nature in my company and its sphere of influence?
Do I accept the challenge of conversion to ever greater goodness and holiness in my personal life, my business role, and the communities where I am involved and have influence?
