|Leadership Monday! |
Cynthia Cherrey meditates on the gift of giving of one's leadership and invites you to be "intentional and courageous" this week in your practice of leadership. As the theme for ILA’s 2019 annual global conference Leadership: Courage Required (CFP Closes 1 February 2019) espouses, “it takes courage to be a leader acting out in front and it takes courage to be a follower acting with integrity and holding leaders accountable.”
|PAUSE for Pedagogy|
In this edition of PAUSE for Pedagogy, Summer Odom and Valerie McKee discuss a project-assignment in which their online leadership students "synthesize leadership concepts by comparing and contrasting their personalities, interests, beliefs, and capacities with a leader in the media or popular press." Be sure to watch the supplemental video interview with Dan Jenkins (series co-editor) for a deeper dive.
|Allies & Accompaniment|
Editor Susan Erenrich discusses the life of Carolyn Hester, ally of the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, in this Grassroots Leadership & the Arts for Social Change Corner. Hester, a folk singer, "accompanied the freedom struggle in vital ways." After a short intro by Erenrich, Hester shares some early childhood reflections that shaped her passion for the Movement. Be sure to stream Erenrich's radio show, celebrating Hester's 80th birthday, while you read.
