use real situations to understand and develop competencies necessary for an effective higher education leadership
Bolman and Gallos (2011) use real situations to understand and develop competencies necessary for an effective higher education leadership. Many of the cases involve politics, both internal and external to the college.
For this 1 page discussion, describe a political situation at your institution that would benefit from an effective intervention by a political leader. Using the political leadership skills described in your readings, discuss how you would plan and implement a leadership agenda to resolve the issue.
