The purpose of this descriptive phenomenological study was to explore leadership as understood, lived, and experienced by 20 high school graduates interviewed within weeks of completing high school. Specifically, the study examined how, in the absence of a set curriculum or class, the students have come to learn and apply leadership attributes in their life.
