Leadership: Animal, Mineral or What? CANCELLED

We will have a Socratic discussion on several topics during this course. First, Defining Leadership: What exactly does it mean? Do definitions vary based on where you stand in the heirarchy? We will do a great boss/bad boss exercise. Next, Defining Leaders... Are there common traits among leaders across discplines? Do some disciplines require distinct traits? Who are great contemporary or historic leaders? (Washington, Lincoln and FDR are givens.) We will also discuss Leadership vs. Management and some of the differences. There will be leadership lessons from Vietnam, taught by someone who fought there, and leadership lessons from Iraq, taught by someone who fought there.
