My Leadership and Global Perspectives reading list #dminlgp


So the first co-hort of the D.Min in Leadership and Global Perspectives that I lead is about to enter its last term/semester with me.  It's not to late to consider applying for the incoming co-hort this August 2012.

In addition to the face to face times, in Europe, Africa and Asia, their own personal research and various projects, they have had reading from me that we discuss each week online.
