Developing Leaders Across the Lifespan

Phronesis: Practical Wisdom for Leaders

with Susan Murphy


Quotes from This Episode
  • “but at adolescence, if we could get more people thinking more broadly about leadership, broadly defined, I think it would be very, very useful.”
  • “…but the kids who are more outgoing, who might have early verbal skills would be the ones you might see taking the leadership roles.”
  •  “…and one of the things we noticed in this data set of about 1000 people was, young people have very stereotyped views of what leaders do.”
