The Leadership Challenge in Action: An Experiential Classroom Exercise

View File

A plethora of leadership frameworks exist for the educator charged with teaching leadership in their classroom, however, transferring theory into practice in the classroom setting can be challenging. This paper integrates the work of Kouzes and Posner’s (2012) Leadership Challenge, which introduces five exemplary leadership practices: challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, modeling the way, and encouraging the heart into a reflective and experientially driven exercise for the classroom. Transferring theory into practice allows an opportunity to challenge students to become active participants in their leadership learning, while furthering their comprehension of the theory.
