Leadership and the Life Experience.
Roberts, Francis J.
This paper discusses the experience of living and what that means to the development of leadership. The author feels that although childhood is a critical time for the development of leadership qualities, the developmental process is lifelong and does not end with adolescence. Therefore, to raise the leadership potential in society we must work toward enhancing the context in which a child becomes of age and also look to the conditions under which the adult life proceeds. Education for leadership at any level means an education in which life is not just learned about but is fully experienced, closely examined, and deeply felt. The author makes several suggestions for accomplishing this education for leadership. (DDO)
