This webinar will make the case for using real life stories about leaders as an effective method for teaching and learning about leadership. Based on the second edition of Snapshots of Great Leadership, the webinar will consider how biographies of activists, politicians, CEOs, and others can be used to deepen the exploration and understanding of leadership theories while inspiring more effective leadership practices. The discussion will focus on benefits and challenges of using biographies of great, bad, and questionable leaders to teach and learn about leadership and leadership theories.
