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 will also develop an action plan for pursuing your passion and changing our world for the better.

"I really liked the broad scope of the class, and I liked that it taught skills through examples. While we looked at history, we also worked to apply it to our everyday lives and goals."
- Lessons in Leadership student, Summer 2015
