'Imagine Leadership' isn't a solution -- it's a conversation starter. As you share the video with various audiences, make sure to leave time at the end for discussion. Questions like these are good ways to start conversation:
  • What are your initial reactions to the facts, stories and questions you saw in the video?
  • Why don't business schools teach leadership?
  • Do you think leadership can be taught?
  • What has changed regarding leadership in the last 20 years? The last 50?
  • How are these changes manifesting themselves in your personal lives? Your professional lives?
  • What do we think it means to prepare students for the 21st century? What skills do students need to survive and thrive in this new era?
  • What implications does this have for our current way of doing things?
  • Do we need to change? If so, how?
  • How do we get from here to there?
  • What challenges must we overcome as we move forward?
  • What supports will we need as we move forward?
  • What kind of training will we need to move forward?
  • What kind of commitments will we need to make (with each other, our students, and the business community) to move forward?
  • Who's scared? Why?
  • What will we do next?
  • What are some concrete actions that we can take in the near future?
