Leadership Discourses: Exploring Students’ Definitions of Leadership
Ever wonder how our emerging leaders frame and think about leadership? That insight could help us understand the future of leadership while revealing key priorities for leadership education, development, and research. This workshop will uncover the leadership discourses among college students through the collective wisdom of the workshop participants. The facilitators will engage the leadership educators and scholars in the room in a collaborative card-sort process of college students’ definitions of leadership, as captured through the Multi-institutional Study of Leadership (MSL). Options for closed sort categories will be based on prior research, but open sorting will also be encouraged.
