Professor of Leadership Studies & Director of Leadership Concentration
Tom’s Favorite LEAD memory:
In 2014 during our LEAD at Sea trip to the Bahamas while sailing the ‘Liberty Clipper’, Megan Nelson found her leadership voice by instructing her watch on how to furl a jib while standing out on the bow sprit. This is a task that requires skill and courage as you find your footing while sailing and perched 25 feet above the water. Megan was somewhat shy and introverted but lead her watch on exactly how to furl the jib. It was a pivotal moment in the maturity of their watch and in Megan’s development as a student leader.
