Cambridge Forum
The Adventure of Ideas.  The Power of Dialogue .

August 2013


Where have all the leaders gone?  What personal qualities make for a great leader?
 What role do circumstances play in developing leaders?  What impact have modern
 communications technology and  "crowd-sourcing," the fragmentation and multiplication
of sources of  information, had on leadership? Those are just some of the questions
Cambridge Forum explores this fall as we talk about leadership.

Joseph Nye leads off on September 18 with his analysis of presidential leadership
styles.  Join us as this adviser to Presidents and Secretaries of State shares his
insights and answers your questions.
