This workbook is the entry point for leadership development in the Innovative Leadership series, which offers an integrated development process that starts as early as university and extends to the executive ranks. Activities draw from well-researched theory, three diverse case studies of domestic and international students, and field-tested processes and worksheets. The unique situation of each case study provides invaluable insight into how student leaders develop and incorporate innovation.

The book is organized into seven chapters. The first chapter talks about innovative leadership for college students and individual contributors. The following six chapters explain the development process and provide worksheets, reflection questions, and case studies.

Eric Philippou, a former intern at the Innovative Leadership Institute and student at The Ohio State University, wrote a blog series applying the Innovative Leadership Workbook materials to his development as a university senior preparing for employment after graduation. By following Eric’s path, students and others seeking employment can build their success.
