• Be able to connect the leadership concepts and behaviors learned in class to other ideas, people and realms of life. For example, how are leaders different from other people? In what ways, if any, are all leaders the same? How does the context of leadership (such as medicine, music or sports) affect the expectations and behaviors of leaders?
