In management and leadership, I believe that the best way to learn a concept, theory, or framework is to apply it. This involves challenging students to reflect what they think they know about leadership and the way people work, enact those beliefs through experiential exercises, and reconcile their beliefs and experiences with those of other students, real world examples and decades of research. Most of all, what I love is helping students develop the courage to pursue their passion for where they want to make their mark in this world and then cultivate the insight to figure out how to go about doing it.
