This monograph focuses on the theory and practice of developing emerging leaders for careers of public service. There are, of course, many alternative approaches in the art and science of the study of leadership, as well as the best practices and programs suggested for developing individuals as leaders. Here we present a framework or pathway for emerging leaders with an emphasis on the work of principled public servants. In America today, this spans the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Dr. Joseph Cerami provides an opportunity to pause and reflect on what we think we know about leader development, based on both his considerable real world experience and his extensive study. He explores the state of the field of emerging leader development grounded in part on our graduate level program here at the Bush School. This Public Service Leadership Program and this research draws on the best ideas for preparing for work in public service. Some of these ideas are grounded in practice and experience and others have been formed in the process of academic research. There is no single path there are many creative insights that should be presented, discussed, and developed as Dr. Cerami does here. The opportunity for lifelong learning in an age of globalization provides more opportunities for growth and development and so continuing to think, adapt, and adjust require both creative thinking as well as active experimentation. This monograph then aims for the ideal of lifelong learning while recognizing the challenges that face this next generation of leaders.
