Has the word leadership become trite? Has its meaning become diluted through overuse and misuse? This is a “soapbox” item for me. Here is an example. A faculty member from another department visited with several leadership faculty in my department last month. He was soliciting our support for a certificate program the dean had tasked him with developing. The certificate was being developed for graduate students seeking a focus in the equine industry. The 15 hour program was titled the Equine Industry Management and Leadership Certificate. It consisted of a core of equine courses, three management electives, and one leadership course. We suggested dropping “leadership” from the title due to the minimal leadership content in the program.
