The business world has entered a new normal characterized by relentless change, complexity, and continuous disruptions. As a result, the leadership work has shifted from traditional hierarchical practices of leadership to building additional organizational capacity through inspiring and developing others to lead. This means that today's leaders are driving significant changes in human systems and individuals' behaviors to remain viable. In this course, the focus is on developing leadership capabilities (i.e., vision, creativity, collaboration, inspiring others, and empowering) in self and others across the organization. This course uses seminars, group activities and discussions, critical and reflective thinking, case analysis and presentation, and group projects to achieve the learning objectives of this course.
This class will have a significant online component, with some class meetings conducted via Zoom and learning activities conducted through Canvas. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
