CSAC Institute – The Art and Practive of Elected Leadership (111)
Real discussions of real issues to develop real leadership solutions
Leadership is a term you hear a lot, but as an elected official, how do you practice it? This course addresses the realities of leading in a turbulent political and economic environment. This timely course draws on the insights of Jim Collins’ most recent book, Great by Choice, as well as a three-year research project on leadership and fiscal sustainability conducted by instructor Dr. Rich Callahan.The class is designed to initially invite discussion by the elected officials on the leadership challenges they have or are encountering. The course then specifically responds to those items, applying the research and empirical findings across a range of recent public sector and business sector leadership research.
Instructor Dr. Rich Callahan is associate professor of managment at the University of San Francisco. He brings practical experience working with elected officials in leadership practices.
