Dr. Stan Amaladas – Book Launch: Intentional Leadership: Getting to the Heart of the Matter
Stan Amaladas, Ph.D. is a Mauro Centre Research Associate and Lecturer at the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, and Okanagan College – Kelowna, BC, and co-editor of Peace Leadership: A Quest for Connectedness.
The context for this book and story is violence, reactions to violence, and the storied choices of eleven men and women who intentionally chose to terminate endless cycles of violence for the sake of real change through interruption, presence, imagination, and acting out of one’s imagination of what could be. Cycles without end contain no provision for their own termination. Termination is not part of the ‘endless’ vocabulary. These eleven men and women were selected because of (a) their capacity to step beyond their socialized narratives, and, by implication, to terminate the endless cycles of violence and counter violence, (b) their courage to act on behalf of the possibility that they can initiate a new beginning even when they experienced the irreversible consequences of the destructive actions of others in their own lives. The author defines these individuals as leaders by intention.
