The links provide interesting case studies and examples to use in class. There are some good discussion questions to get students going on a topic. The visuals are not bad but could be a bit more attractive. There are lots of ideas for activities, which is quite helpful.

I was particularly impressed with the depth and breadth of the material at this resource site.  Rarely do I find this much material as well organized.  Additionally, because of the depth and breadth available it gave me a broad base for ideas and thoughts to expand the minds and the learning of my students. Well done.

The outline represents a strong knowledge of the fundamentals and serves as an excellent supplement. It offers a wide variety of learning activities that promote group discussion and reflect levels that are appropriate for the concepts presented. I especially like that it includes situational leadership.

I have seen pieces of this before while searching the internet.  Now that I have seen the full site, I know I will use it for myself and for students.  I teach in a Leadership minor program and I enjoyed the learning activities the site provides.  I am particularly happy that leadership is not confused with management here.  Both are useful in an organization, but they are different.

Materials are well organized and cover a wide variety of foundation elements for leadership analysis and self assessment tools. Small group disucssions using Bolman & Deal's four frame model were especially relevant.

Technical Remarks:

Materials all opened without difficulty.

This page can be used to complement either an Introduction to Management or
Organizational Behavior course. It provides a good introduction to Maslow's
Hierarchy of Needs, McGregor's Theory X vs. Theory Y, and Herzberg's Motivation
Theory. Graphics are visually appealing.
