Albert and Vadla take us into what seemed to be a transformational learning experience for all involved. In their article, “Authentic Leadership Development in the Classroom: A Narrative Approach”, the authors examine the factors that contributed to one central question – What was it about the course that made it such a meaningful leadership experience for students? The authors begin with a description of authentic leadership and the process of constructing narratives about oneself, a group and others helps students develop an authentic leadership voice. They continue with a description of three types of leadership stories – Who I Am Stories, Who We Are Stories, and Future Stories. In addition, the authors provide student perspectives on each of the assignments. The authors conclude by sharing key ingredients for re-creating this powerful learning experience.
