Leadership inspires and mobilizes others to undertake collective action in pursuit of the common good. Leading others to act for the common good makes democracy work the way our founders imagined and the way modern society demands. For over twenty years, the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs and the University of Minnesota Extension Service have provided forums of instruction for leaders in Minnesota, the U.S. and the globe. The Leadership for the Common Good CD Rom is a collection of tools for that instruction -- now available to classrooms, teachers, leaders and community organizations. The tools include: * Introductory materials that describe the leadership for the Common Good framework * Readings and exercises that focus the learner on eight essential elements for democratic leadership including leadership in context, personal leadership, team leadership, organizational leadership, visionary leadership, political leadership, ethical leadership and putting it all together * Power Point presentations and handout masters that help educators prepare for course and workshop instruction * Articles that frame the important work of leadership education, written by the founders of the Humphrey Institute's leadership programs.

Boards worldwide have since adopted Carver's model. This book examines 11 boards chosen for their diversity, assessing how the model's practices play out, and identifying what works--and what doesn't--in real life.
