GSAP Integration Committee meets

Crossing the threshold

The Good Shepherd Asia Pacific Integration Committee met in Madonna Heights, Kuala Lumpur from 12-16 July 2019.  Their work was facilitated by Paula and Jaime Sgherza, and the group dared to envision the emerging future of the region.  They drew inspiration from nature.  They used Theory U as the tool for innovation and invite each of us to be part of the Community of Practice:  Theory U online course which begins on 12 September.   Let us seize the moment.  Carp Diem!

Daring to lead with uncertainty!

Did St. John Eudes and St. Mary Euphrasia learn any theory to become radical leaders of their time? We are indeed blessed to belong to a lineage of visionaries who responded proactively and allowed the fire in them to become a movement!


Though old stars may burn out and die, look to new horizons and even beyond”
