Class Description:
Change is constant. When we move with the flow of change and disrupt systems that impede its process, we can create the conditions conducive for embracing change.

What is the leader's role in change? Change is often built into definitions of leadership, and certainly many scholars and practitioners have written about how leaders can foster change in their organizations or communities. Putting these concepts into practice takes a close examination of one's own role and belief that change can actually happen.

In this course, we will use a living systems approach to probe the breakdown in design that is producing ineffective institutions and systems. We will explore lessons from nature that inform the way systems and institutions are organized, students will explore their own personal journey that has shaped their leadership and leadership development, and define for themselves what leadership looks like in the face of change.

http://classinfo.umn.edu/?jacob818+PA5103+Spring2020
Class Description:
Change in our society is no longer optional. It's necessary. Our failing and out of touch institutions and systems are doing more harm them good. However, systems in and of themselves are not inherently "bad". How do we reframe our approach to systems change so that we can harness what works and jettison what doesn't?

What is the leader's role in change? Change is often built into definitions of leadership, and certainly many scholars and practitioners have written about how leaders can foster change in their organizations or communities. Putting these concepts into practice takes a close examination of one's own role and belief that change can actually happen.

In this course, we will use a living systems approach to diagnose the breakdown in design that is producing failing institutions and systems. We will explore lessons from nature that inform the way systems and institutions are organized, students will explore their own personal journey that has shaped their leadership and leadership development, and define for themselves what leadership looks like in the face of change

Class Description:
Change is often built into definitions of leadership, and certainly many scholars and practitioners have written about how leaders can foster change in their organizations or communities. Moreover, understanding the links between leadership and change takes on increased urgency as the United States and other countries strive to foster an "innovation economy" and navigate through complex, turbulent political terrain. Leaders will need conceptual tools and practical skills to promote innovative organizations that thrive in and contribute to an innovative society.

In this course, students will explore their own personal journey that has shaped their leadership and leadership development. We will also explore the importance of things like mindfulness and emotional intelligence when practicing leadership and making change. Finally, we will delve deeper into the particular skills leaders need in order to make change and promote innovation in their work.

Class Description:
Change is often built into definitions of leadership, and certainly many scholars and practitioners have written about how leaders can foster change in their organizations or communities. Moreover, understanding the links between leadership and change takes on increased urgency as the United States and other countries strive to foster an ?innovation economy? and navigate through complex, turbulent political terrain. Leaders will need conceptual tools and practical skills to promote innovative organizations that thrive in and contribute to an innovative society. Accordingly, this seminar will examine models of change and models of leadership and investigate how leaders can promote desirable personal, organizational and societal change. Case studies and action research will be emphasized. An important class product will be a framework for leadership and change in an innovation society. During each class session, one or two learners will be responsible for recording ?takeways? from the evening's conversation. When participants complete this course, they will have knowledge, skills, wisdom, and motivation that enable them to practice personal, team, organizational and societal leadership aimed at innovation for the common good.
