Today's leader faces challenges of diminished resources, disorienting change and constant uncertainty.

He directs the Center for Spirituality of Organizational Leadership in the Leavey School of Business. Delbecq holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Toledo and a master’s degree and doctorate from Indiana University.
