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 coproducing an understanding of what integrative leadership is. Requirements: - that the student be in the MBA or EMBA program OR - that the student be a master's student in the Humphrey who has taken PA 5011 or PA 5941 or obtains instr consent [this rule is in place for registration for the PA section of the course, PA 5105] OR - that the student obtain the instructor's consent.
