This week we will have a discussion on social capital and leadership facilitated by Marion Cornish and Beverly Sloan.

Social capital is currently a hot topic in leadership literature and a potentially useful framework for understanding leadership. This session will explore the linkages between social capital and two commonly accepted models of leadership: Authentic Leadership and Servant Leadership. The session will start with short presentations by Marion Cornish and Beverly Sloan followed by a discussion focused on leadership analysis based on social capital emergence and how this relates to the current leadership literature.
