Building a leadership culture on campus

Posted on February 22, 2017

“Although it is true that some people are born with greater natural gifts than others, the ability to lead is really a collection of skills, nearly all of which can be learned and improved.” ~ John Maxwell

As part of the university’s effort to invest in the people who make MSUM a great place to work, John Maxwell’s 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership is gaining steam on campus.

The program grew out of the campus climate survey, which identified the desire to increase empowerment and connection. Charged with the task of identifying a leadership development opportunity to do that were Dean Marsha Weber, Dean Randy Cagle, former Dean Tim Borchers, CIO Dan Heckaman, Interim Dean Denise Gorsline and AD Doug Peters. They reviewed several leadership development-training models, but chose Maxwell’s 21 Laws. Maxwell’s life work is focused on leadership, and he’s written more than 50 books on the topic.

“We chose Maxell because his biggest theme is the critique of positional leadership. For Maxwell, leadership is influence, no matter what position you are in. It seemed like a good model for MSUM to adopt,” said Randy Cagle, Dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Read the rest of this entry →
