ALS 2100 - Teams and Leaders in Action

(KCM) (SBA)      
Summer. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

M. W. Deets.

What do effective leaders do? How do they think? How do they overcome challenges? How does your personality affect your ability to lead, and how can you use aspects of your personality to help others and yourself? This course examines the habits of thought and practice of exceptional leaders, past and present, to equip the student to lead in an increasingly complex, connected, and diverse world. The course consists of nearly equal parts theory, philosophy, practice, and historical case study. Lessons learned from historical case studies are matched with contemporary leadership theory and practice from the business world, the military, athletics, journalism, and space exploration. The primary course objective is to produce future leaders prepared to influence their communities in positive ways, regardless of profession.
