Welcome to the SAGE edge site for Discovering LeadershipSecond Edition!

Discovering Leadership: Designing Your Success, Second Edition guides students to purposefully design their leadership skillset to solve problems and inspire others to work towards a common vision. The text uses the CORE™ framework—an acronym for Confidence, Optimism, Resilience, and Engagement, along with practical applications and activities in every chapter, to focus on learning the essential skills for leadership success. Students are asked to evaluate their personal beliefs and values of leadership, develop their leadership goals, and their purpose for leading. The authors also present the best approaches for supporting the success of others, leading teams inclusively, and leading to create sustainable communities. Regardless of their background or major, students will learn the knowledge and skills needed to become a transformative, successful leader.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.
