Week 1 does not often have a great deal of content to it The main topic that was described in class was Conceptual Framework that Professor Dardis uses to organize the concepts for both Leadership and Social Change that will be explored in class this term Organizing concepts along a continuum of Abstract to Concrete I hope will not only be useful in this class but perhaps in others Professor Dardis will be referring to this framework throughout the term it can help organize your thoughts but also show where gaps in your own knowledge might be so that you can purposefully fill them At least it has helped me Main themes from the week a First this class has quotleadingquot in its title but in some ways it is more important to understand what it means to be an amazing quotfollowerquot since we all spend most of our time in that role Leadership involves both being a leader and being a follower 0 Most people tend to think of leadership in terms of leaders as seen by the immense number of words that we came up with in class that had to do with characteristics of leaders We tend to focus on individuals heroes or villains as if they are really how social change occurs This is rarely true and it can blind us to other aspects of leadership that can often be hidden or at least never make it to TV cameras or other social media a Concepts on leading social change can be confusing and it helps to show how concepts relate to each other For example valuing quothonestyquot is little different from quotbeing honestquot and is different from the actual practice of quottelling the truthquot They are all related and should exist together but they do not always do so Another example a leader may have a vision but do they do anything with that vision a We all have preferences for different parts of the abstractconcrete continuum There are times in which we care more for values of our leaders than we do for personal attributes of said leader and then there are times when we care for what they do more than what they believe It is good to be aware of this when we decide to lead or follow Homework Please read the pdf39s in quotCourse Contentquot for Weeks 1 and 2 and be ready for lively discussions in class grill ll 6 2517 C h f 39 l n V l n I LJ n I l i svllgepaleLlLr Fe re lll ll f a j Hf quot39Pl 7 quot I j Yr I 39f llw w I L kci fil ulel 34 S woof llvquotlm ml i ray L 7W 63 EWU S Aggl mw t zmgm mmgjl if wallq 39 39 39 39 Twai lcmlem DE GWWHJM39 lam E LI quot5 but WWW 61 K gt4 lerEK llliwgix39 110927 ll lmQtjml39l39ll k 39 I Jquot 39 Home W W teEs39 39 w39 J8quot i g r KW f Cam ml W w WW p w r quotV k Ma a mtbk
