Two professors, with very different research practices, discuss the same topic: Leaders and Leadership. The communities they work in are also distinctly different: the technical fields and the local minority communities.

Followership, Teamship, Leadership: Your journey to becoming a leader                In this engaging and interactive presentation, Dr. DeRuntz leads the audience through the stages of personal development that we all must pass through on our journey to become leaders. You will be able to discover for yourself the stage you are presently in and the next steps necessary to reach the next level in your life.
