Sensing the Weak Signals of the Future: Attributes of the SPL Model

Sensing the Weak Signals of the Future: Attributes of the SPL Model

Rapid change demands new and better skills for effective leaders. In a world where uncertainty and ambiguity prevail, successful leaders must be able to assimilate and reframe data quickly and effectively, and the Scholar-Practitioner-Leader (SPL) model may provide the basis for a better understanding of those skills and abilities. The purpose of this paper is to describe the beginning of a research project with the goal of defining the attributes of the SPL model as situated in the present and future of effective leadership. The long-term goal is to develop a tool for assessment of the abilities leaders will need. That instrument could then assist in the reframing of educational practices to enhance the skills and abilities of our future leaders.
