ORL 4500 - Leadership Development

This course explores leadership as a dynamic relationship with the organizational environment, stakeholders, and followers, in public, private and non-profit organizations. Leadership in context is an essential concept, as well as the core leadership practices that effective leaders exemplify. Notable leaders from corporate 500, small business, non-profit, military and political organizations will be studied to assess their core leadership practices and those attributes that may vary due to the organizational context. The importance of ethical, strategic, and system wide decision making is examined. Strategies used to implement change and move organizations forward are addressed. Students will assess their own leadership attributes, characteristics, and skills and construct a personal leadership development plan.
