Leadership is one of the most studied and least understood human behaviors. Yet, leadership is critical for organizational success-especially in the hypercompetitive, global world. What is leadership? Who has it? Where does leadership come from? Does it differ by culture? What are the theories of leadership? Do leaders differ from managers? How might the student become a more effective leader? The objective of this course is to prepare individuals to better understand, accept, and assume leadership roles in increasingly competitive, globalized, multicultural, multi-values organizations by (1) understanding the significant theories, models, and concepts of leadership; (2) analyzing and understanding their unique leadership style; (3) developing, refining, and articulating their individual philosophy of leadership; and (4) examining and considering the values and ethical issues associated with leadership. This information has been collected for the Post-Discipline Online Syllabus Database. The database explores the use of literature by schools of professional education in North America. It forms part of a larger project titled Post-Discipline: Literature, Professionalism, and the Crisis of the Humanities, led by Dr Merve Emre with the assistance of Dr Hayley G. Toth. You can find more information about the project at Data was collected and accurate in 2021/22.
