I am enrolled @ the University of Oklahoma!

I am not a student in a traditional sense - as I'll be a faculty observer. 

I have an OU ID and login so I can be a part of the Oklahoma Scholar-Leadership Education Program.  (I never would have thought I'd be "enrolled" at the University of Oklahoma!)

That makes OU the 10th Academic School where I have been "enrolled" in some capacity in my life.  In most ways I'll be a fellow-learner in the course.

I will also be the only non-teaching-faculty participant, so this makes OU the 7th University I've had some kind of faculty relationship with!

I genuinely look forward to the course - and am enjoying the reading already!  

Leading From Core Values: Principles & Practice of "Tribal Leadership"

This class is full 

In this course, we will explore the key perspectives and organizing principles for effective leadership in a collaborative setting.  Participants will practice the use of values-embedded stories to create social and psychological space for purposeful collaboration, practice designing and pitching strategic project ideas, learn how to join with others in effective social structures to complete significant projects, and create a vision for their future as effective leaders.
