Simon Peter and Transformative Leadership: Leadership Insights for Today’s Leaders

Cam Caldwell, Mark McConkie, Bryan Licona


This paper examines the Apostle Peter as a personification of the relatively new leadership model, Transformative Leadership, which focuses on the leader’s role as an ethical steward who owes “covenantal duties” to those whom (s)he serves. We begin by briefly explaining this new leadership model, then explaining how Peter’s leadership behavior fits the transformative leadership model with its accompanying moral and ethical obligations. Focusing on the application of the six leadership perspectives in the model, we provide twelve propositions that incorporate insights from Peter’s experiences and that apply to the modern leader. The third section of this paper provides a brief summary of the contributions of this paper.
