Course Description

What makes a great leader? What is your own leadership potential, and how can you increase it? Do you have a passion -- such as literacy, the environment, or equal rights -- and hope to make an impact one day?

Great leaders often possess several key leadership skills. Based on one of Brown University's most popular political science courses, this course offers students the opportunity to discover new insights from great historical leaders, examine key leadership skills, and build upon your own leadership awareness and potential. You also will develop an action plan for pursuing your passion and changing our world for the better.

"The quality of instruction I've received in just a month with Brown faculty was incredible. I was amazed at how I was able to connect with my instructors and with fellow students. All and all it's been just as, if not more, rewarding than some of the best classes I've ever taken in a traditional classroom setting."
- Lessons in Leadership student, Summer 2014
