One of my required courses this semester is on Educational Leadership. Needless to say, we have piles of reading to do. On the bright side, there are only 3 students in this seminar class and my two class mates are brilliant, I think. So, I'm thoroughly looking forward to it.
And it has gotten me pondering leadership again... deeply.
A few years back, I took part in a program called Leadership Calgary. I was part of the class of 2004. That experience shaped many of my ideas about leadership, community and what it means to care about both. I was immersed in the concepts of transformational leadership. Now, I find myself reading more and different things about leadership and what it means… in terms of a job, a vocation, a person… a life.
I’m interested in your thoughts on this topic, as well as your favorite books, movies, etc. Which leaders have inspired (or enraged) you the most? Why? Is it possible for anyone to be a leader? If so… when and how?
Looking forward to some good discussion on this one...
