Leading Self: Purpose-Driven Leadership
We need a new generation of leaders and game-changers. The notion of leadership that once resonated with greatness no longer inspires new dreams, compelling visions, and revolutionary actions. The unethical behavior, self-indulging decisions, and ego-driven conduct of many contemporary leaders have eroded society’s trust in corporate, public, and political leaders. There is an urgent need for principled and purpose-driven leaders who are driven by a set of universal virtues, a strong moral compass, and a deep desire to serve a global society and a sustainable world. This course teaches students critical concepts and skills to examine their passion and purpose, develop vision, mission, values, and a plan of action to serve their communities. This course provides students with the opportunity to reflect, collaborate, and learn through individual and group activities including self-evaluation, cases, discussions and seminars, and projects.
This class is an online course, with class meetings conducted via Zoom on Saturdays and learning activities completed through Canvas.
