List of Leadership Theory to be discussed in Workshops #1, #2, & #3 (and a few in #4 if necessary). The goal is for each student in the class to end up with a library of 44 pages that summarize the major leadership theory over the past century and to have a working knowledge of each theory. It is important for students to insert notes on the hand-out pages as our discussions progress from the oldest theory to the ones developed in the last few years.

  I will present Theory #1, #2, #3, & #4 in Workshop #1. Students with #5 through #28 should be prepared for about a 6 minute presentation and a 6 minute discussion in Workshop #2. What isn’t covered in Workshop #2 will be presented/discussed in Workshop #3 (and yes, some may carry over to Workshop #4). The timing specified here is the minimal amount—some theory will generate significantly longer discussions.

  Each student presenter will develop a one page (this is one page on one side, no more) handout that (a) defines the theory, (2) provides a model (if one is available in the literature or the student develops one on their own, but this does not apply to all theory listed below), and (3) provides some basic discussion bulleted points (some items are provided with each theory below, but the students should go beyond this basic list), and (4) lists earlier theory that relates to this one (please leave some space for the class to modify this list as other theory is presented).

  The top of each page will have this information:

    1. Great Man Theory
          Thomas Carlyle, circa 1840s
          The ‘original’ leadership theory
          No strong validation
          Relates to ‘trait’ theory
