This comprehensive and integrated resource prepares leadership educators to develop practice that is informed by theory, imbued with healthy leadership habits, and imparted with time-tested facilitation techniques—particularly experiential learning and reflective dialogue.

There are plenty of resources for those who desire to practice leadership more effectively. What has been absent until now is an extensive and accessible compilation of resources and preparatory materials for those who facilitate the leadership training and development of others. Leadership educators are responsible for preparing the next generations of change-makers to develop the leadership skills and capacities they need to navigate the challenges in the decades ahead. They enable organizations and communities to become the holding environments and learning laboratories that empower connections of meaning and depth, embolden courageous exploration, and enable needed structural and systemic change. The author offers this book as a resource to help readers become exceptional leadership educators—those who can empower others to enhance their leadership skills, capacities, and efficacy.

Designed to prepare those who are charged with the leadership training and development of others, this book includes: two dozen leadership theories, models, frameworks, and topics; an extensive collective of leadership practices; and tactics for facilitating powerful training experiences that are infused with experiential learning activities and reflective dialogue. Included with each theory and practice are detailed and easy-to-follow instructions on how to facilitate specific experiential learning activities—along with go-to reflective dialogue questions—that bring the topics to life and ensure this book serves as a practical resource.
