November: Thinking About Leadership
November 2-23, 2020—Mondays @ 12 p.m. ET
Leaders capture the interest, passion, or the acquiescence of people and incentivise behaviour germane to the leader’s agenda. Leadership is the most pressing issue of local and global environments in our time. Whether it be leaders in business, politics, governance, health, welfare, faith, and any other sphere, leadership is the key. This class focuses on the basic shape of leadership. A shape based on historic Torah principles, though rejected by the world, still retain their relevance in both secular and faith-based communities. We will think together about building integrity and character and its practical application in leadership and life. The objective is to provide students with the incentive to think about leadership character not only communally but personally. We will discover the leader in each of us and maybe change the way we think.
