A Competency-Based Approach for Student Leadership Development (Editor)

New Directions for Student Leadership, Number 156.

Although the use of competencies has a rich history in organizations, the use of leadership competencies with college students is only in its infancy. But, as funding becomes scarcer and students become more discretionary with their time, using a leadership competency approach can offer institutions quantifiable data to prove the value of leadership development to students, parents, employers, alumni, donors, and institutional administrators. And leadership competencies might just provide the roadmap we need to develop the ethical and competent leaders we need in our world today.

Ch. 1: This chapter provides an overview of leadership competencies including the history of emergence, contemporary uses, common frameworks, challenges, benefits, and future implications.

Ch. 3: This chapter describes how to use a leadership competency approach to help students develop their five signature themes from the Clifton StrengthsFinder assessment into strengths.
