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.
