Join us for our next Community Conversations which will be held at the Onalaska United Methodist Church on Wednesday, November 15. The upcoming Conversation is with John McHugh. We will meet from noon until 1:00 p.m. and a box lunch is served (with a free will offering for the lunch).
If possible, please pre-register with the “Register Here” button on this page so we know how many lunches to prepare. These monthly conversations are sponsored by the Interfaith Leaders’ Coalition and hosted by English Lutheran Church.
The theme for this conversation is “Faith and Business Leadership”. There is growing evidence that faith can positively influence business leadership. Concepts such as Servant Leadership and Conscious Capitalism are being implemented in a growing number of successful businesses. Business authors such as Jim Collins (Built to Last, Good to Great) suggest that having a purpose larger than making money leads to greater employee engagement. That purpose is often found in a faith dimension. Join John McHugh as he shares stories and examples of how faith has shaped business leadership in remarkable ways.
