Conversation Project: Everyday Leaders

Recognizing Leadership Beyond Power and Authority

August 30, 2018 | 3:30 p.m. | Union County Safe Communities Coalition

1106 K Ave., La Grande OR 97850

The notion of “leadership” often conjures up individuals with titles reflecting positions of power and authority—those who control resources and make important decisions that affect large groups of people. Many of our ideas about leadership are also influenced by race, gender, age, and other identities. Join leadership studies teacher Lois Ruskai Melina for a conversation exploring questions such as, How are leadership, power, and authority different? What do everyday acts of leadership look like? Are some people naturally "leaders" and others "followers," or does everyone have the capacity—and responsibility—to be both in different situations?
