Leadership

Johnson develops principled, global business leaders. Our efforts center on training leaders to have:

Competence

  • Do you have the relevant knowledge and required skills? 
  • Will your abilities and actions inspire trust and confidence?

Character

  • Are your values clear to yourself and to others? 
  • Do you live your espoused values?
  • Do you stand on principle?

Compassion

  • Do you show individualized concern for those you lead? 
  • Do you practice inclusive leadership?

Courage

  • Will you speak up? 
  • Will you stand alone? 
  • Will you do what is right, rather than what is easy?

We achieve this through a continuous, reinforcing cycle of instruction, experience, and review. To gain experience, students have the following opportunities:
