Being a Leader and the Effective Exercise of Leadership: An Ontological, Phenomenological Model

El Bosque University

Bogota, Colombia

This course is a
leadership laboratory using a new science of leadership that employs
an ontological / phenomenological model.

Ontology: The science of the nature and function of being.  (In this course the being of being a leader and the source of the actions of effective leadership.)

Phenomenology: A methodology that provides access to being and action as these are actually experienced and lived real time “on-the-court”.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

Participants of this Leadership Course discover that real leadership never means just a position, a title, time, money, influence, or any of the traits typically “required” to be a leader or produce the results of a leader. Instead of more knowledge about leadership, you will be provided with access to actually being a leader and exercising leadership effectively as your natural self-expression.

During the course conventional ways of thinking will be challenged, new ways of thinking will emerge naturally, and you will find yourself naturally acting to create even greater success in the areas of life and leadership that matter most.
