Leaders are not born but are self made through personal journeys that can last a lifetime. The purpose of MLD-325 is to help students along the way, better understanding how and why others have succeeded -- and often failed. The course will consist of a wide array of readings, classroom conversations, outside speakers and occasional films. The first portion of the course will focus on the inner journey of leaders -- how they develop self-awareness, authenticity and a personal voice; the latter portion will concentrate on the outer journey -- mastering the arts of leading up (your boss), leading down (your team), and leading across (collaboration with other organizations). This is not a skill building course but one that, hopefully, will encourage reflective leadership.
