Developing as a Leader


Units: 6


This course introduces students to leadership via three learning frameworks: models, practice and reflection. Using guest lectures, readings and videos, and small group discussions, we will define leadership and provide applicable frameworks for leadership practice. Students will be able to experiment and practice different skills and styles in a safe environment where they can receive useful feedback. To help students pursue their own personal path of leadership development, the focus is on formulating personal goals, models and activities that sustain this development over the course of their careers.

  • Apply tools for effective reflection and self-awareness
