AbstractStudents will learn about different leadership styles and how power and leadership play out in social interactions. Emphasis is placed on personal development and the implementation and application of topics to the workplace context.
ObjectiveThis course will enhance students’ understanding of the complexity of hierarchical relationships in the workplace in weekly lessons that include lectures, analyses of leadership situations (e.g., case studies), exercises, and group discussions. More specifically, students will be informed about how power shapes people’s behaviors and decision-making processes. They will learn to analyze the different elements that make a good leader such as personality traits, behavior, and skills. With case studies and small group exercises, students will learn to evaluate different types of social and emotional skills related to leadership. Students will be encouraged to reflect upon their own communication skills and leadership potential and will be given the opportunity to train their leadership skills. The course further addresses integrity and ethics in leadership.
