Conspiracy!: Cicero, Catiline, and Running a Classical School

Dr. Michael Johnson, Headmaster,
Westminster
Academy,
Memphis TN

Mike spent much of the hour recounting the story of
Cicero and Catiline and the conspiracy that sprung up around them in history.  He then pulled the following principles from this story that were quite appropriate but which we did not have much time to unpack:

A.     Both reveal the need for an Understanding of Institutional History

B.      Both reveal the need for an Understanding of Institutional Purpose

C.     Both reveal the need for having Organizational Clarity

D.     Both reveal the need for Clear Communication

E.      Both reveal the effects of humanity’s fallen nature and need for grace.

MJ also gave a high recommendation for headmasters to interact with and attend ISM events (www.ISMINC.com).
