Week 4 Resources

Northouse, P. G. (2021). Leadership: Theory and practice (9th ed.). SAGE. 

  • Read Chapters 3 and 4.

These chapters explain that leadership is not a destination. It is a process of continual growth, experience, and even mistakes. Leadership continues to evolve, and various situations call for different skill sets, traits, and behaviors. This week’s chapter talks about leadership dispositions in conjunction with traits, skills, and behavioral leadership approaches.
Reflection is critical to developing effective leaders, as they challenge themselves and those they lead to be better tomorrow than they were today.
