      • MANA 5350-004 EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP

        This is an advanced graduate course that explores the fundamental principles of effective leadership. There are many different aspects of leadership such as an individual’s personality, skills, experience, personal integrity, coaching others, and environmental considerations (to name just a few).  Strength-based leadership means that an individual should seek to understand his/her own strengths (and challenges) and with this understanding, find his/her own, unique leadership approach. Part of this journey is an intense inward examination of one’s own strengths and challenges.  Another part involves observing successful leaders and identifying what their strengths (and perhaps weaknesses) are and how these individuals have used these strengths to become leaders.  To this end, we will examine a number of relevant topics that reflect key issues to understanding effective leadership from both a personal perspective and an outward-oriented perspective.
