Social-Emotional Leadership: A Guide for Youth Development

Today’s youth are tomorrow’s leaders. The better they can understand themselves and work effectively with others, the greater impact they can make on the world around them. Based on research from the Center for Creative Leadership, Social-Emotional Leadership: A Guide for Youth Development identifies 14 student leadership attributes and offers tools for adults to use to develop social-emotional leadership in youth inside and outside the classroom. Social-Emotional Leadership: Reflection Journal, a blank companion journal for students is also available.  ISBN 978-1-60491-987-5
