Joshua Chamberlain at Little Roundtop – Reflection Paper 5

Joshua Chamberlain ‘s story draws our attention to another striking leadership challenge. In the
Leadership Moment book, author Michael Useem draws our attention to some key dimensions to
ponder: ( 1) enlisting the troops; (2) small actions/great value; (3) taking responsibility. Review the way
the author describes each of those aspects (pp. 141-146). Choose one of them and apply the lessons to
another leader. How did that person address that aspect of leadership, and what were the effects?
How does this aspect of leadership apply to your life? Textbook: The Leadership Moment Nine True
Stories of Triumph and Disaster and Their Lessons for Us All. Michael Useem, New York: Three Rivers
Press.
