A Framework for Virtual Leadership Development in the Intelligence Community
Jenkins, Jacob R.
Journal of Leadership Education, v17 n2 p60-82 Apr 2018
The purpose of this paper is to develop a set of elements that Intelligence Community (IC) leadership can use as a framework to transition leadership development courses from the current face-to-face format to the virtual environment. IC employees face unique leadership challenges, and broader application of leadership development is needed. Due to the unique ethical and leadership dilemmas faced by the IC workforce, the unique makeup of the current labor force, the limitations of traditional face-to-face leadership development efforts, and the broad group of stakeholders affected, the IC should transition from face-to-face leadership development to a virtual environment. In this phenomenological qualitative study, eight primary themes emerged as important to include in a virtual leadership development course.
