Our year-long series of 36 Minutes LIVE: Beyond the Book is in full swing! Last week, Wexner members and alumni gathered together online for a videoconference with Rabbi Joanna Samuels, WGP Alum (Class 10).  Joanna discussed two types of leadership styles—the self-protection of leading from an “ark” and the strong agility of leading from a “tent.”

We hope you will join us for the next call in this series:

“The Heart of Darkness”

A surface look at the “leadership industry” reveals enormous investment in the development of leaders, but limited time and money spent on leadership research.  We have turned toward teaching the how of leading rather than teaching about leadership.  Bad leadership is everywhere and the stakes are very high when misguided and even immoral leadership are allowed to go unstudied.  Viewing the world through rose-colored glasses without recognizing that “the heart of darkness” is everywhere puts us all at risk.  Barbara Kellerman is asking us to view the world as it is, not as we would wish it to be. 

Barbara Kellerman is James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Founding Executive Director of the School’s Center for Public Leadership.  She is the author of multiple volumes including Bad Leadership, Followership and Hard Times: Leadership in America.

We hope you will join us for what will surely be a fascinating call.
