Leadership Development

Leadership Development is designed so participants work collaboratively to build an empirical model of effective leadership based upon their own observations and personal experience, as well as professional research findings. The empirical model consists of an operational definition of leadership; identification of the essential qualities and characteristics of leadership; and specific skills necessary for educators to realize their unique potential as leaders.

Madonna University course number: EDU 5830.39
