ARTICLE | Review of Supporting Literature on Community Leadership

Collaborative Leadership, Articles

What is the fundamental nature of community leadership and its applicability for communities today? These questions lead to a study of three interrelated, though distinct, themes:

  • What is community? What are the characteristics of personal and collective journeys toward and away from community? What are the characteristics of a caring community?
  • What is leadership and what can we learn about leadership that is applicable to the building of communities?
  • What is community leadership and how is it expressed in communities today?
