Assisi Institute Seminar: “Transformational Leadership” Series

Dr. Carol S. Pearson is pleased to have been invited to give a seminar as part of a series on Transformational Leadership at the Assisi Institute. The Institute has graciously offered complementary online access to the seminar.

Founded in 1989 by Dr. Michael Conforti, the Assisi Institute is a groundbreaking educational organization dedicated to deepening humanity’s knowledge of the soul through the ever-evolving archetypal theories that begin in the work of C.G. Jung. From this, Dr. Conforti has developed an emerging subfield of archetypal pattern recognition and analysis. For more information, visit the Institute’s website at this link:

Dr. Pearson’s session explored ideas from her edited volume, The Transforming Leader: New Approaches to Leadership for the Twenty-First Century, integrating into this material insights from her work on archetypes in organizational dynamics and in leadership. She discusses current theories of leadership as well as considering which archetypes can help meet the changing needs of contemporary leadership. As a sneak preview of some ideas from her forthcoming book, Persephone Rising, she also uses examples from the Greek myth of Demeter and Persephone, examining Zeus’s role as a leader in the context of that myth.
