The outline represents a strong knowledge of the fundamentals and serves as an excellent supplement. It offers a wide variety of learning activities that promote group discussion and reflect levels that are appropriate for the concepts presented. I especially like that it includes situational leadership.

I have seen pieces of this before while searching the internet.  Now that I have seen the full site, I know I will use it for myself and for students.  I teach in a Leadership minor program and I enjoyed the learning activities the site provides.  I am particularly happy that leadership is not confused with management here.  Both are useful in an organization, but they are different.

Materials are well organized and cover a wide variety of foundation elements for leadership analysis and self assessment tools. Small group disucssions using Bolman & Deal's four frame model were especially relevant.

Technical Remarks:

Materials all opened without difficulty.

I am currently teaching couple of online leadership courses and found this material very useful. This can be used for basic leadership course at the graduate or undergraduate level.

This page can be used to complement either an Introduction to Management or
Organizational Behavior course. It provides a good introduction to Maslow's
Hierarchy of Needs, McGregor's Theory X vs. Theory Y, and Herzberg's Motivation
Theory. Graphics are visually appealing.
