Student Resources

This site is intended to enhance your use of Self-Leadership, First Edition, by Christopher P. Neck, Charles C. Manz, and Jeffery D. Houghton. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material. 

Before learning to lead others, students need to first be able to lead themselves effectively. Self-Leadership is a research-grounded, practice-based, realistic, and inclusive approach to self-motivation and self-influence. It teaches students to lead themselves by equipping them with strategies and tips for developing their own personal effectiveness and excellence.

Special thanks are also due to Kevin Knotts of West Virginia University and Jordan R. Jensen of Freedom Focused, LLC for creating the ancillaries on this site.
