Discussion for Week 2

Describe your interpretation of the Five Practices and Ten Commitments of Leadership from Chapter 1 of The Leadership Challenge. Be detailed and provide as much real and applicable material as possible.
Each week, students will engage in an online discussion to address controversial issues in society. The goal is to stimulate a thorough reflection and analysis of particular issues in order to promote a holistic understanding of and appreciation for societal challenges. This activity will require two levels of input.
Initial Post: The student will submit one primary post, which will respond to the discussion question(s) for the week. This post must (a) be a minimum of 200–300 words in length, (b) exhibit college-level writing, and (c) include a reference to an external resource (i.e., textbook, course lecture, scholarly article, or appropriate website). All references should follow proper citation rules in APA, MLA, or Turabian format. The initial post must be submitted by Thursday evening so as to provide ample opportunity for feedback from classmates.
