The whole concept of teaching 'leadership' is, in my opinion, flawed. We should rather be focusing on teaching people how to be self-reliant, proactive, empowered and creative. I know that some people equate these things with 'leadership' - but the concept of leadership has at its heart to do with having legions, workers, acolytes or followers, which is not part of what I would be teaching people.
