One of Vincent de Paul’s practices was to bring priests of his region in France together for weekly conversations aimed at their continued growth in dedication and competency. They called these gatherings the “Tuesday Conferences.” Bernard Pujo, one of Vincent’s biographers, describes the sessions this way: “The title ‘Tuesday Conferences’ was purposely chosen because of the etymology of ‘conference’…to bring together. The conference is the bringing together of reflections on a given subject. These meetings were not the occasion of a passive audience listening to a prepared talk.”

Our blog website​ provides a synopsis of the books by some of today’s most popular authors on leadership development, together with Vincent de Paul’s ideas and practices on the same subject. There are also questions for reflection to promote your own growth or guide conversations among your team members.
