Chapter 9: Leadership development

Gama Perruci and Sadhana W. Hall


Leadership development is deeply personal. Part of the leadership development experience is to recognize that there is no easy way to become a successful leader, and that leaders require a certain level of humility. Practical wisdom is gained by developing the habits of doing the right thing in the right way at the right time through experience. Learners need to be able to understand the choices they make and the consequences of the decisions they take. This chapter includes examples of activities educators can use for creating an environment in which their learners can gain practical wisdom and highlights a few program strategies that develop leadership capacities in learners when working with others. Finally, the chapter examines the role of failure in gaining practical wisdom.
