This course explores leadership and the human experience as it is depicted in fiction, biography, drama and film in order to better understand the historical and social construction of leadership theory and practice. Key learning outcomes include: an appreciation for the historical nature of leadership theory and practice, increased awareness of the value of literature and film in framing effective leadership practices; differences among successful-and unsuccessful leadership styles; areas of strength and deficiency in personal leadership styles; humanistic principles in analyzing ethical conflicts in leadership and management situations; leadership/management challenges such as initiative, planning, and assessment of calculated risk-taking; decision-making utilizing non-traditional learning sources in everyday leadership opportunities. Note that this course, as described, previously appeared under the title formerly A Humanistic Approach to Leadership and Management.
