Course Descriptions

TitleLeadership for Change

This course utilizes an active learning model that provides participants with opportunities to examine and test theories of leadership by analyzing the actual dynamics that arise in real time when relating to those who hold positions of formal authority or when individuals attempt to exercise leadership and/or claim informal authority. The design provides a practice setting that duplicates to some extent the dynamics that occur regularly in groups and organizations, so that participants can test and integrate their study of leadership against actual, lived experience. It is based on an assumption that these dynamics and processes –many of which are elusive and frequently operate beyond our direct awareness—can subvert plans for personal and/or organizational change if they are not understood and taken into consideration.
