Course leader

Josh Hayden earned his doctorate in higher education leadership and policy from Vanderbilt University in the U.S. and has published and taught in the field of leadership studies for the past ten years.

Target group

High School Graduates, University Students. GSSP welcomes university students, high school students, and non-student audiences as well, but the minimum age requirement for the GSSP is 18.

Course aim

Through academic study, dialogue, personal observation, cultural experiences, and contextual analysis students will learn the dynamic role context plays in shaping leadership processes, stories of resistance, and effective social change. Students will complexify their understanding of good and bad leadership through studying specific leaders and their collaborators and attempt to analyze what they said and did in light of the places, people, history, and the cultural environment that shaped them and their relationships. Some leaders will be inspiring, some will serve as a warning, and almost all will be a mix between the two. We will draw on classic leadership texts, biographies, writings, and art to draw implications for our own lives, our communities and aspirations.
