9781885473516: The Leader Who Is Hardly Known: Self-less Teaching from the Chinese Tradition

"This book is a commentary on the many commonalities and the occasional differences between Tao philosophy and experiential education theory and practice."--The Leader Who is Hardly Known

Taoist philosophy and text can have deep meaning for experiential educators because of its focus on natural spontaneity and unself-conscious learning and teaching. The Leader Who is Hardly Known compiles a series of essays that begin with a brief story focusing on the experiences and lessons of a teacher called the Leader Who is Hardly Known. Following the story, the essay shares Taoist quotes and the author s thought that relate back to the story.

Written in an order that emphasizes personality traits that affect leadership, commonalities to experiential education programs, then the necessity of connection to the natural world; the essays contained are intentionally short and can stand alone for reference and guidance. The conclusion summarizes how the principles contained form a foundational philosophy for experiential education.

About the Author:

Steven Simpson, PhD is professor of Recreation Management and Therapeutic Recreation at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. In the early 1990s, Steve was Fulbright scholar who taught environmental education at National Taiwan University in Taipei. He is past editor for the Journal of Experiential Education and has written over 50 articles about experiential education, outdoor recreation, and environmental ethics.

Review:

"The Leader Who is Hardly Known presents a model of leadership that re-frames the context of power and influence in leadership and does it in a way that fosters experiential education, the learner, and the leader. This book is a great resource for experiential educators and educators as a whole." --Jacquie Medina, M.A., Doctoral Candidate, Educational Leadership & Policy Studies, University of Northern Colorado
