Description

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.
