LeadershipYOU is an educational resource site dedicated to empower viewers with effective leadership skills.
The LeadershipYOU project contains three components: the book, LeadershipYOU: Your Future Begins With You, the free massive open online course (MOOC), and worldwide leadership news.
Who is Dr. John Shufeldt, MD, JD, MBA, FACEP?
John is a leadership expert in multidisciplinary ventures, committed to innovation in medicine, entrepreneurism and education.
After struggling through grade school and high school, and finally deciding to take ownership of his education, John went on to earn a medical doctorate, a law degree, an MBA, as well as a Six Sigma certification. His motto when mentoring others is, “If I can do it, you can do it.”
John decided to examine the guiding principles necessary for a successful life of self-leadership. These principles each have their own chapter in the book, and the lessons discussed drove the content of the 16 videos that make up the MOOC.
Thus, LeadershipYOU was born.
10 easy-to-read chapters are complete with strategies for leadership development that John learned throughout his thirty-year career in medicine, business, and law, as well as moving stories from self-leaders around the world.
The book is a handy how-to guide into the world of self-leadership. Each chapter is organized to connect lessons through inspirational quotes, anecdotal real-life examples, and implemental strategies and solutions.
Each chapter concludes with closing summaries and takeaways to solidify the reader’s motivation into action.
MOOC (n): acronym for massive open online course; series of videos that teach viewers about a single topic.
As an educational advocate and successful entrepreneur, John launched the LeadershipYOU MOOC to encourage viewers to challenge, inform, and enrich their lives through self-leadership and perpetual learning.
The MOOC is composed of 16 short videos, all of which cultivate the skills necessary for self-leadership. Lessons taught in the MOOC align with lessons inscribed in the book.
The MOOC is a free resource created specifically with teachers and students in mind. It can be used alone or in conjunction with its companion book, LeadershipYOU: Your Future Begins With You.
Each MOOC video expands upon each other. However, teachers can chose how to utilize the videos to best suit their classroom needs.
Free common core-aligned lesson plans are also available to further assist educators in sharing this self-leadership content.
