Leadership is never out of style, of course, but these particular times have us all hankering for better, stronger, more effective leadership. Maybe that's why two of our clients at UNC have developed experience-based learning opportunities to develop students' leaderships chops.

Here's a cover piece I did for the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School's alumni magazine: The practice of leadership.

In the wake of the economic meltdown, bad CEO decision-making, questionable business practices and financial mismanagement, it's probably not a bad idea to help business students develop leadership skills as early as possible.

I also just wrapped a piece about a leadership course for students of the UNC School of Medicine. More and more, physicians are being relied upon to do more than oversee our care. Between health care reform and rising poverty, doctors are needed to drive policies and programs. This program gives them a taste of what's to come. I'll post it when it's published.

We do what we can to support emerging and seasoned leaders. One of our most popular workshops among the "leadership set" is A Matter of Opinion. We offer it annually to Leadership Triangle, and will be presenting it at the Equality North Carolina conference next month. Interested? Email me.
