In a culture where college sports are highly heralded and education and extracurricular activities sometimes take a backseat, one would  be hard pressed to find athletes who are active in all endeavors that college life offers.
James Theobald's insight:

This article discusses two Mississippi State football players and how they have developed skills to demonstrate leadership on and off the field. I think this is great because of how rare it is to see players being active in their community and giving back. This represents both charismatic and symbolic styles of leadership.

This article is by Rodger Dean Duncan, a leadership consultant and executive coach and author of Change-Friendly Leadership: How to Transform Good Intentions into Great Performance. Is Rick Pitino really worth almost $5 million a year?
James Theobald's insight:

I found this article to be a particularly interesting because how it takes a look at the other side of the coin. Although coaches are looked at to be great leaders for an organization this article discusses how their compensation is signifanctly greater than other styles of leadership on campus like professors and presidents. I think there are some excellent points discussed about the levels of compensation within organizations.

So who's in charge? Bill Peduto, Pittsburgh's presumptive mayoral winner, hasn't been elected yet. Rich Fitzgerald, who took office last year, is the third Allegheny County executive to occupy that office since its creation a dozen years ago.
James Theobald's insight:

Pittsburgh has void in leadership in todays world that they did not have 20-30 years ago. This has developed into a major issue with sports and the city as a whole. This helps reitterate the points in my other articles that developing leadership skills is not only important but to have the ability to lead others and help them is also key.

Leadership has become a crisis in college sports among coaches and administrators within those organzation. A prime example as explained in this article was Jim Tressel at Ohio State. His lack of leadership and judgement had a monumental impact on the university and the whole sport of college football. This has been a college theme among institutional control among the last 5 years.

James Theobald's insight:
