Course Catalog Description:
Are you interested in working across government, business, and the non-profit sector for public good? Are you wondering how you can create sustainable shared leadership on challenges that can best be addressed together? This course explores multi-sector leadership and related governance and management challenges from a variety of perspectives and provides an opportunity for students to work together to apply what they are learning individually and in teams through in-class exercises and a final team project. The course is taught by a team of interdisciplinary faculty and considers different contexts, forms, and specific examples of multisector leadership that can enable transformative action to tackle a significant societal issue and achieve lasting change.

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 co-producing an understanding of what integrative leadership is. This course is sponsored by four departments. If PA 5105 shows as full, please check for space under the other departments - MGMT 6402, OLPD 6402, and PubH 6702. They are all for the same class, with the same instructors, meeting at the same time. Every section in all four schools must be filled before any over-ride permission numbers are issued. If all class sections are full, please contact Samantha Silker at the Center for Integrative Leadership (sbsilker@umn.edu) for a permission number.
