The following is my senior thesis from Brandeis University, where I graduated with honors in sociology. In this paper I go through a thought-process: "What has been discussed, theoretically, regarding leadership and the making of leaders?" and, "What lessons can we take from other theories and experiences to come to a better framework from which we can examine the process of 'becoming leader'". The project was a lot of fun, and some people have enjoyed reading it. Looking back, it reads more like a thought-process than a thesis, as my most favorite discoveries are only hinted at the end, but if you have patience and you enjoy reading about leadership, I hope you enjoy this work.
