Preview of A Manifesto for Growing Leaders on Your Campus

Today, it isn’t enough for schools to create a one-time leadership training event or program. It’s insufficient to host a conference for leaders in the fall and hope that students will remain equipped and motivated to carry out their leadership positions during that school year. In reality, we’re not sure if that ever worked. Leadership development must be organic, flowing from the very culture of the campus. A leadership bias must be in the DNA of the administration; it must be central to the organizational values and implemented in a plan that flows out of the lives of those nearest to the students.

This Manifesto is a flowing conversation with Tim Elmore where he lays out foundations for healthy leader development among emerging leaders. In addition, Tim furnishes ideas for leader training that results in real life-change—organic rather than programmatic—and provides steps for cultivating a leadership culture on your campus or in your organization.
