Course Description:

What has constituted leadership in our parents' generation, and the associated values and skills necessary to be successful as a leader, has changed dramatically in our lifetime. Globalization, multiculturalism, technology, and the ever-turbulent nature of organizational life require new kinds of knowledge and skills on the part of managers and leaders. What is your vision for making a contribution to this world, and what unique gifts do you bring? What combination of values represents your vision of leadership? This course seeks to provide language and experience to help us begin to explore both the inner and outer dimensions of leadership, through reading, writing, coaching, and experiential exercises. What role do our values, or soul, play in mediating between our inner and outer lives? We invite you to bring your whole self, shadow and light, into this exploration, where we explicitly hope to develop practical action in leadership suitable to the 21st century. Many of the concepts and practices introduced will be further developed in subsequent courses in the program.

Course Objectives

Introduce learners to key philosophical, theoretical, and conceptual foundations in 21st century leadership;

Explore personal values, beliefs and world-views and the role they play in our life, thought, action, and leadership;

Develop capacities for critical self-reflection, including exploration of our souls and shadows;

Begin work in academic, scholarly writing, using the writing style formulated by the American Psychological Association (APA).
