Leadership for a Better World book cover The newly released second edition of  Leadership for a Better World: Understanding the Social Change Model of Leadership Development  and the corresponding facilitator guide,  The Social Change Model: Facilitating Leadership Development  provide an approachable introduction to the Social Change Model of Leadership Development, giving students a real-world context through which to explore the seven C's of leadership for social change and socially responsible leadership.
The Socially Responsible Leadership Scale (SRLS) is a statistically valid and reliable assessment tool designed to measure the seven values of the Social Change Model of Leadership Development.  The SRLS Online is the perfect assessment tool to use in leadership courses and small-scale programs.
Collaborative Priorities and Critical Considerations for Leadership Education is the product of ILEC's work and serves as an invitation to all who engage in the work of leadership education to consider: "What is required of us to collectively build capacity of leadership learners?"
