Using Movies For Leadership Development


Learn While Watching A Movie

Many people who learn leadership feel that one must read books and take outside classes. These work, but there is another way--to observe, study and act.

Few of us are theory wonks, most of us learn by observation. Modeling, when done properly, is one of the top three behavioral methods useful in learning new skills since participants can actually see and hear individuals acting like leaders.
