Overview

Examples of flawed leadership are all too evident in today's business, government, and nonprofit sectors. In this confusing environment, students struggle to understand how to be effective contributors and learners. They are hungry for guidance as they strive to understand leadership and as they seek to make a difference on their difficult path to becoming effective leaders themselves.

Deeper Learning in Leadership is a resource that is designed to show how leadership potential can be both broadened and deepened in our colleges and universities. Author Dennis Roberts proposes a new approach to learning about leadership development in higher education that recognizes innovative strategies are needed for the increasingly complex issues we face, both in higher education and in the broader landscape beyond the campus. He advocates that fostering deeper leadership will require educators to take a critical look at the organizational models and processes that characterize most contemporary colleges and universities. Roberts includes new models of learning and leadership, and provides summaries of widely used leadership theories as well as theories that are not as well known. He proposes a new perspective of leadership and a process of discovering leadership potential principles that educators can use to deepen students' experiences.

This important book also includes the voices of students and former students who discuss the critical leadership dilemmas they have encountered such as where to channel their energy, how to understand their limitations and boundaries, when to question their motivation and purposes, how to stand on their principles, and how to become more inclusive through their leadership.

Deeper Learning in Leadership will help academics create dynamic programs that will prepare their students and alumni to transform the communities and businesses they serve.
