Principle-Centered Leadership: A Review of the Literature for a Seminar Course in Leadership and Communication.
Brunson, Deborah; Comeaux, Patricia
This paper presents a series of handouts that were developed for a senior seminar capstone course in communication entitled "Leadership and Communication." The paper pinpoints the increasing interest in the areas of "leadership" and "ethics" as areas of study and research in universities, and suggests that these two areas merge in what the current paradigm of leadership study describes as "principle-centered leadership." The paper presents the course syllabus, the weekly class schedule, quotes on leadership and communication, a list of the characteristics of principle-centered leaders, questions for discussion on a video entitled "The American Story," an interview with James MacGregor Burns, the title page from the premier issue of "The Journal of Leadership Studies," and a 23-item bibliography. The paper notes that materials were selected which focus on a principle-centered approach by exploring different issues of leadership in a variety of contexts, such as values, ethics, diversity, human dignity, and civic responsibility.
