This model of leading with “soul,” “heart,” and “mind” combines four leadership models from the literature into one coherent framework.  In the soul section, participants will identify their strengths and virtues through an abbreviated LPI assessment; in the heart section, they will use their emotional and social/conversational intelligences to understand leadership practices; and in the mind section, they will use results from cognitive neuroscience to act and lead consciously, wholeheartedly, and responsibly.  The idea is that by learning effective leadership skills, faculty developers will be positioned and empowered to initiate change in teaching and learning at their institution.
