Leading in Organizations
Academic Term and Year
This course focuses on the skills leaders need to elicit commitment and productivity from individuals and groups to create positive change and build flourishing organizations. Students will learn theories and practices for identifying and motivating key actors in the workplace, and to create and lead successful teams. Awareness of one's own values, beliefs, decision-making tendencies and behaviors is a crucial first step in becoming a leader. Thus, a significant portion of the course consists of assessment and reflection activities designed to enhance students' self-awareness of their cultural intelligence, conflict style, team behaviors and preferences, sense of flourishing and wellbeing, and their leadership values and goals.
