FOUNDATIONS OF LEADERSHIP
This course focuses on leadership development--both each student's individual leadership development and the group leadership development of the class as a whole. I use both academic and popular texts to catalyze deep discussions about what good leadership looks like; this depends on public learning where students share their own obstacles to effective leadership to help others gain insight into their own leadership failures and challenges.
