ABSTRACT  
This paper introduces a new pedagogical approach  design-based learning  that 
holds great promise for leadership education, particularly for developing the 
more elusive facets of leadership performance rooted in the habits of mind used 
by effective leaders.  Design-based learning (DBL) represents further examining 
the connections between leadership and design. Integrating the elements of 
design-thinking into experiential challenges for developing leaders, the DBL 
approach aligns with the characteristics of those problems often encountered 
in leadership, and situates students to see basic leadership theory and practice 
differently.
