Office of the President

Dr. Eileen ArandaDo you have what you need to make a difference in your workplace, in your community, in your congregation? Every day, I hear from activists, business leaders, and change makers, dedicated people who do extraordinary things yet still grapple with the sense that they are missing an essential ability or internal resources that will allow them to lead ethical, effective change, to really make a difference in the world. If meaningful change is your passion, I want you to know that it is possible to effectively do your work—even in the face of challenge and opportunity. And to do it by embodying a way of leadership that transforms the people and circumstances around you. How is that possible? By transcending cultural, religious, ideological, and economic barriers. By cultivating mindfulness, dialog and collaboration. By fostering more compassionate leadership skills and by living by the Golden Rule. By putting wisdom to work in the world. Sound simple? It’s not. But it’s what great leaders have learned to do. And you can learn it, too. Because the world needs you at your best. Eileen Aranda, Ph.D. President, Claremont Lincoln University
