Interdependent leadership requires a keen awareness of social identity. What is your own social identity? What are the social identities of others? How do you build bridges while retaining a core identity? How does one’s identity change from close interaction with others? This fine video from Aaron White, featuring Steadman Harrison walking through Addis Ababa, beautifully explores these ideas. The CCL LeaderMOOC has an excellent module on social identity, including this video; the workbook is here. (Also see our white paper about leadership development in context in Ethiopia.)
