Advancing Theory in Developing the Practice of Becoming a Citizen Leader
McCoy, Craig; Schubert, Carol
Journal of Educational Technology, v12 n4 p30-36 Jan-Mar 2016
The purpose of this study is to examine the literature from key contemporary authors in the study of leadership who offer insights on the phenomenon of citizen leadership. Additionally, this paper examines two real world examples in which citizen leadership is being demonstrated with regard to strengths and weaknesses, as well as personality traits and motivations. Commonalities exist, and suggest that further study might be useful to determine if citizen leadership can be taught in institutions of higher learning. The intent in this paper is to lay the foundation for future study that qualitatively captures the language patterns in becoming a citizen leader.
