The Leadership Lectures: Robert Schreiter, C.PP.S.

The Leadership Lectures feature world-class, accomplished and influential leaders with expertise ranging from business and philanthropy to public service and academic research. Through the Lectures we hope to allow our community to have access to the expertise, advice and best practices of some the world’s foremost leadership minds and so the lectures are free and open to the public.



  • About the lecture

    Leadership for Social Reconciliation
    Social reconciliation—rebuilding societies after conflict or authoritarian rule—has become a major priority in many parts of the world. Likewise, it often also entails helping populations move through letting go of a past that is no longer viable in order to go toward a future yet only partially imagined. In the past two decades, a great deal has been learned about social reconciliation’s dynamics and prospects. This lecture will explore the larger frames of vision needed to facilitate such change, the special skills required for leading processes within that change, and the personal qualities of the leader necessary for bringing about social reconciliation.
