Power and teamwork in public affairs education.
Class Notes:
Impacting global and local communities 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. Students will participate in facilitated constructive dialogues that teach them to prioritize mutual understanding. This will strengthen their ability to navigate difficult topics and help them become effective leaders who can work with those with different values, beliefs, and perspectives. The course aims to develop leadership skills for fostering collaborative efforts among diverse groups by engaging in conversations about power dynamics in stratified societies, sharpen their understanding of effective collaboration across a diverse team, and co-create solutions to complex problems experienced in public affairs practice spanning the school's five disciplines.
