«Leadership That Settled the Frontier Barry L. Boyd Associate Professor Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education, & Communications Texas A&M ...»

-- [ Page 2 ] --

Western fiction has the potential to engage students who may not see the relevance of many leadership theories or models. L’Amour’s characters exhibit many leadership traits, behaviors, and skills that were just as essential in building our nation as they are in today’s boardroom. His Sackett novels are especially effective in exhibiting Kouzes and Posner’s (2008) Five Exemplary practices.

L’Amour’s novels have sparked an interest in reading for many students in directed studies projects that, in turn, led them to read other genres and reflect on the leadership lessons contained within. Students not only focus on the knowledge and skills of the characters, but also examine the character’s thinking process as they develop solutions to problems and expand their personal vision.

I invite leadership educators to delve into the world of Louis L’Amour and engage students in exploring the leadership lessons his characters offer.
