The Harvard Business School, and Law School is famous for its case study method. I also use the case study method in my classes. I find a person that has the character profile that I want to highlight, and I distill their story down to its essence. My goal is broaden the student’s repertoire of stories they can tell to explain character traits, and values.

One of my favorite examples is polar explorer Sir Ernest Shackelton. Harvard Business School professor Nancy Koehn’s business case called Leadership in Crisis: Ernest Shackleton and the Epic Voyage of the Endurance is a great examination of this intrepid explorer and his struggles and success.

I teach this class to IELTS students, students preparing for the SAT, and intermediate to advanced students that are interested in business and leadership. I tailor each class to address the student’s goals and strengths.
