Leadership for What Purpose?


Historically, the development of leadership abilities has been considered a primary purpose of higher education. Today with the complexities of higher education and the expanding demographics of the student population it appears that links between leadership and learning have been more implicit than explicit (Roberts, 2007).

The book ‘Exploring Leadership’ and ‘The Leadership Challenge’ both emphasize learning as an inner quest of self‐discovery and understanding ones self in the context of others. Studying leadership at an introductory level is a journey of self‐discovery – what the student cares about and values; what inspires andchallenges them?; finding their purpose.
