Global Resources and Leadership Development in ESP: Center for Creative Leadership (CCL)

Hello ESPers worldwide!

As a doctoral student of leadership communication/discourse & leadership development and the teacher of an undergraduate seminar titled Organizational Leadership, I have become increasingly aware of the importance of leadership skills for our students already in or seeking leadership positions.

If you are interested in learning about leadership, there are many resources available.  In this post, I would like to share with you information about the following organization: Center for Creative Leadership (CCL).

My suggestion is that you visit the white papers section of the CCL website, where I found the following titles:

  • Future Trends in Leadership Development
  • Grooming Top Leaders
  • Boundary Spanning Leadership

I hope that the white papers listed above give you some ideas for preparing those future leaders in your programs for their new roles and assignments.

Now, it’s back to research and data analysis for me during this Golden Week break in Japan.

I’ll see you next week!
