Leadership Development

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lori Roth

Section: A

CRN: 4998

Credits: 3

The differentiation of managers from leaders has become clearer in the minds of those who head organizations, and the consequence has been a stronger drive to develop the leadership capacity of people. Over the past two decades, an increasing number of products and services are offered to develop leaders, but do they work? What do we know about the ways in which leadership capacity is actually enhanced at the individual, group and organizational levels? What does the spectrum of leadership development activities look like? How should these activities ideally dovetail together to gain the greatest impact? What accounts for the failure of many programs? These and other questions form the core of the course. While there is emerging academic research that enables us to evaluate valid strategies from those more faddish, the field of leadership development remains both an art and a science. We therefore approach the course as critical thinkers, ready to ask the difficult questions about any intervention that ostensibly can develop someone into a leader. The centerpiece of the course is a set of client engagements in which students work in small teams to assess an existing initiative and provide feedback to the client. Offered Spring Term Only.
