Title: Understanding Power and Teamwork in Public Affairs Practice. Register for S/N, 1 credit. Only Humphrey School students should register. Description: Impacting communities, both globally and locally, requires future professionals to bring innovative solutions to pressing social problems. Effective communication is the first step in this process; but creating synergies between individuals in different power positions entails multiple challenges. Cross-cultural differences add complexity to this task. The course aims to develop leadership skills for fostering collaborative efforts among diverse groups. Students will engage in meaningful conversations about power dynamics in stratified societies, sharpen their understanding of effective collaboration across a diverse team, and co-create solutions to wicked problems experienced in public affairs practice spanning the school's five disciplines.
