Leadership for 2001: Teaching Leadership in Communication Behaviors.
Watt, Willis M.
This paper presents a sample syllabus for use in an undergraduate course focused on leaders, leadership behaviors, and the leadership process. The paper notes that the training of new leaders has lagged behind the development curve in providing for effective leaders to meet the challenges of the 21st century. The paper also notes that training of leaders has included such elements as ethics, multicultural diversity, communication skills, an understanding of people, and a knowledge of the leadership process. The paper argues that what a leader is can be improved, if not actually learned, through training and education. The paper concludes with a sample syllabus that has been used in a field study in an ongoing project. Contains 32 references. (Author/RS)
