In Leadership as a call to Service. The lives and works of Teresa of Ávila, Catherine of Siena and Thérèse of Lisieux, Christine Cameron looks at a synthesis of the lives and works of the three women doctors of the Catholic Church as servant leaders.
The seminal work of Greenleaf (1970) on servant leadership and Spears (1998) with his identification of the ten core characteristics of servant leadership provided the framework and inspiration for this book. The focus is on how the ten core characteristics of listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualisation, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of people and building community are reflected in the leadership practices of Teresa, Catherine and Thérèse.

Christine has served in administrative positions in Catholic primary schools in New South Wales Australia as Principal, Assistant Principal and as Religious Education Co-Ordinator. This book is based on Christine's recent successful PhD research Women Doctors of the Catholic Church: A Study in Servant Leadership.
