What Katniss and Peeta can teach us about leadership

Over the past few weeks, the internet has been buzzing with articles about what Hunger Games: Catching fire has to say about gender dynamics with the relationship between Katniss and Peeta serving as the discussion’s focal point. The majority of these articles and posts have been making comments about gender stereotypes and what they mean in the social or relationship arena. What I have not seen too much of is people talking about what Katniss and Peeta can teach us about leadership.
