Scholars exhibit leadership by analyzing our world and helping alert us to change and shape the direction in which society is heading.   The Harvard Business Review recently contained an article whose authors researched the future of leadership and the growth of artificial intelligence in decision making.  Read more here.

Athletics

 

 

Leadership in the athletics phase can range from intramurals and club sports to being a member of your campus athletic teams.  The NCAA supports leadership development among student-athletes through forums, recognition events, and postgraduate internships.  More information about their initiatives can be found here.

Service

 

Many leaders within this phase become public servants at some point in their careers.  One aspect of servant leadership is altruism—selfless concern for the well-being of others.  Peter Singer is a philosopher and ethicist who explored the concept of ‘effective altruism’ in this TED Talk.

 Communications

 


Do you ever consider the impact of leadership and power in popular culture?  One of the latest podcasts from NASPA features entertainment writer Jodi Walker.  Walker writes for several media outlets and reflects on leadership and pop culture in this podcast.

 

Arts

 

While leaders in this phase do not hold the exclusive rights to creativity, they can often help others see different approaches to situations.  Edutopia is a website managed by the George Lucas Educational Foundation, and this article showcases seven leadership skills fostered through arts education.

Bree Boyce, an initiate of the Florence Marion University Circle and a former Miss South Carolina, spoke at O∆K’s 2016 about the relationship between arts and leadership.  Check out the video of her presentation here.
