Reflection Questions:

  • What experiences in St. Ignatius's early life helped him to be the leader that he was in the last 16 years of his life?
  • What are some key events (i.e., circumstance, decision, coincidences) in my life that have led me to be the leader-trustee that I am today?
  • What life circumstances, leadership qualities, and/or governance styles do I have in common with St. Ignatius?
  • Why did I accept the invitation to serve on Xavier's Board?
