Discussion group to focus on leadership in turbulent times

Once again Case Western Reserve University, through its Siegal Lifelong Learning program, will be offering a course in Bay Village this winter. This is not a college course, just learning for the fun of it.

Our course, "Leadership in Turbulent Times," uses as a textbook the book of the same name authored by presidential historian and Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin. Applying five decades of study, Goodwin demonstrates how four exceptional leaders – Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson – overcame adversity and transcended personal ambition to enlarge the lives of others.

Warren Buffett said of the book, "Goodwin has prepared a marvelous banquet with four leaders whose lives provide lessons for all of us. Pull up a chair."

Reading is not required but strongly suggested as we enjoy a lecture and discussion format; in today’s polarized country these stories take on a singular urgency. Our leader/teacher is Pam Belknap, a retired and experienced teacher herself.

We meet at Bay United Methodist Church in the parlor (off the parking lot in back of the church), Mondays from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. for eight weeks beginning Jan. 13. The cost is $87 for Lifelong Learning members; $103 for non-members. Register online at case.edu/lifelonglearning, or by calling 216-368-2090. You can call Lynn at 440-826-0658 for information but not to register.
