LABOR LEADERSHIP

This course was developed on the concept that good labor leadership is basically the same as good leadership in any given situation. The traits and behaviors of successful leaders will be part of our discussion, so we can attempt to understand and cultivate these positive traits in ourselves. Each of us attempting to lead our members and our organizations to the best of our ability is important to the well-being of your organization and to the Labor Movement in general. Recently, significant studies are being done on the followership aspect of the Leader-Follower partnership focusing on what part of the equation followers play. The course is divided into four segments. Each segment will be conducted at the same time each day of the week. A hyper-linked PowerPoint presentation allows the class members to select from a variety of topics, so those which are of the most interest and relevance to the group can be explored as deeply as necessary.
