Lincoln & "Team of Rivals"

If you are an avid supporter of our Professional Reading Program, you very well may have taken, or are taking, part in the latest leadership challenge to read Doris Kearns Goodwin's book "Team of Rivals." Goodwin shares her many years of research of one of America's greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln.

As part of a Leadership in Cinema challenge, participants are encouraged to watch Steven Spielberg's adaptation of the book "Lincoln" which premiers in mid-November. Check out the movie's trailer:


Complete information regarding the "Team of Rivals" leadership challenge can be found in the Professional Reading Program Library on the Wildland Fire Leadership Development Program website. A "Team of Rivals" discussion group has been set up on in MyFireCommunity to link readers from across the nation and to support local groups.

Additional Leadership Challenge
If you have read the book, the Sparks for PRP Change need your help in developing discussion questions for Chapters 20 - 26 "Team of Rivals." Contact Pam McDonald if you can help.
