In the third invited paper of this special issue, Ritch and Mengel describe a multiyear, cross-disciplinary, broadly collaborative initiative to provide some degree of consistency in excellence to the field of leadership education. The great challenge in this effort, of course, is to provide this framework without stifling innovation in the field and the dynamic flexibility required in a situational and dynamic construct such as leadership. The present solution, reported in this paper by Ritch and Mengel, consists of a series of Guiding Questions across five sections: Conceptual Framework, Context, Content, Teaching and Learning, and Outcomes and Assessment. In addition to reporting the history, context, and field tests of these Guiding Questions, the authors solicit further input and engagement from leadership educators in all fields. The contact information is listed in their paper (full disclosure: we, the editors, have been a part of this initiative in varying capacities).
