Professionalizing Leadership

Barbara Kellerman

  • Takes a hard look at our implicit if not explicit claim that learning how to lead is quick and easy -done in a course or a workshop or an executive program, in a week or a weekend or a term or a year
  • Provides a bold alternative by asserting that leadership must become a profession - like medicine and law
  • Makes an all-important distinction among leadership education, leadership training, and leadership development
  • Draws on the military - the only major American institution that can "legitimately claim" to teach how to lead - for information and ideas on how to do it right
  • Provides a lucid template for what it will take to transform leadership from dubious occupation to respectable profession
