Joseph M. McShane, S.J., president of Fordham University, was featured alongside Stanley McChrystal, a retired four-star general, and Dr. Penny Wheeler, obstetrician and CEO of Allina Health, on CBS News Sunday Morning on April 12. The three of them discussed the type of leadership our nation needs during this pandemic.
Sunday Morning Special Contributor Ted Koppel asked Father McShane, “What do you think are the most important elements of leadership?”
“That’s a tough question,” he replied. “I think you have to begin with self-knowledge. Number two, you have to know what your priorities are. Number three, you have to be wise enough to ask for advice. And four, you have to be humble enough to accept it.
“And if you are able to do those, you’ll be a leader. A good leader? Maybe. A great leader? Possibly.”
