Course Catalog Description:
Leaders with different skills and from different sectors need to be able to collaborate in new ways to meet challenges ranging from improving public education, to writing smarter and more consistent regulations for healthcare delivery, to humane and effective approaches to current migrant. Integrative leadership is shared leadership of public, private and nonprofit actors or approaches to address complex and significant issues that cannot be effectively addressed by a single entity or technique. This course focuses on key integrative leadership questions and the diverse theories, disciplines, experiences and techniques that can help us answer them. Learning occurs through reading foundational materials, personal leadership coaching, engaging with examples from guest speakers and case materials, and developing a final group project. You will learn to recognize and address integrative leadership challenges and opportunities, and build your own capacity to contribute to integrative leadership through group work and through being exposed to a range of boundary work practices.
Class Notes:
Fall 2020's LAW 6623 will be offered REMOTELY. Class will meet synchronously-online during Fall 2020, Thursdays, 6:00 - 8:45 p.m.
Class Description:
This is an interdisciplinary, 3-credit seminar led by co-instructors from multiple schools of the university. Students will: a) learn to recognize and diagnose integrative leadership challenges and opportunities; b) build their own capacities to practice integrative leadership through group work in individualized peer-to-peer coaching in diverse teams and through being exposed to a range of boundary work practices; and c) gain better knowledge of the leadership contexts within their own profession and in other sectors. We emphasize contexts for integrative leadership at five basic levels: within individuals, within and across groups, within and across organizations, within and across sectors, and at the societal scale. Learning occurs through reading foundational materials, personal leadership coaching, engaging extensively with examples from guest speakers and case materials, developing a group capstone project on integrative leadership, and iteratively co-producing an understanding of what integrative leadership is. This course is sponsored by four departments. If PA 5105 shows as full, please check for space under the other departments - MGMT 6402, OLPD 6402, and PubH 6702. They are all for the same class, with the same instructors, meeting at the same time. Every section in all four schools must be filled before any over-ride permission numbers are issued. If all class sections are full, please contact Samantha Silker at the Center for Integrative Leadership (sbsilker@umn.edu) for a permission number.
