The heart of good leadership is a respect in
action that assists leaders to take another look (re-spect from
the Latin respectare to re-look) at their employees. An important
principle to this relooking is subsidiarity. This principle is not simply a
right to autonomy, but rather the recognition of a gift to be given, especially
by the employee.
This CHA webinar highlights important concepts from the book Respect in
Action: Applying Subsidiarity in Business by Michael Naughton, Jeanne
Buckeye, Ken Goodpaster and T. Dean Maines, all of the University of St. Thomas.
The book is addressed to business leaders committed to implementing sustainable
organizational changes consistent with the key principles of Catholic Social
Thought. It is directed to managers whose decisions and purposes influence not
only the economy, but the lives of men and women around the world who work for
them. Subsidiarity invites organizations to pursue the common good through
practices that take the integral development of the human person at least as
seriously as economic prosperity.
