Vol. 8 No. 2 (2021): Summer 2021

We need to attend to both preparing for now and preparing for the future. The key is that we understand that balance between now and later. The encouraging part is that it is not an either/or, but an and/both situation. We do not have to choose, as they are linked. Understanding the value of both of these targets allows us to leverage synergy in our efforts to amplify skill development in order to attain long-term leader development. This issue of the Journal of Character & Leadership Development (JCLD) is aimed directly at the two aforementioned targets. We have brought together a collection of articles that impact and inform both of these targets. Our goal with this issue is to shed light on different aspects to consider when looking at preparing leaders to be effective into the future.
