This project contains the background and process of development for a creative leadership training and education program for personnel and students of Freed-Hardeman University in Henderson, Tennessee, resulting from the merging of two independent initiatives put forth by the author and Dr. Ray Eldridge, Dean of the School of Business, Freed-Hardeman University. The process used to develop the initiative, the strategies applied to build support and those planned to implement the program are included, as well as support materials for the program and an explanation and diagramming of a fully accommodating model of content known as the Freed-Hardeman University Model of Creative Leadership Training and Education (the FHU Model). Additionally, developmental diagrams illustrating the parallels between three progenitor models and the FHU Model and other peripheral diagrams and proposals are also presented.
