Each individual has a unique capacity to contribute their expertise, talents, insights and experience to create a significant impact in their lives and in the lives of others.

  • Emotional Intelligence – ability to manage ourselves and our relationships;
  • Communication – writing, speaking, listening;

MGT 4193 - Service, Leadership, Values and Systems
Leadership is often perceived in terms of an individual’s skills and abilities to influence others. While these are important ingredients of leadership, in order to be truly effective, it is also critical for students to understand the environments in which they operate, the values that drive their decisions and actions, and the consequences that those decisions and actions will have on others within their organization and beyond.  All individuals should be aware that their current behavior either limits or expands their ability to exercise leadership and influence others in the future.

This course has been designed to enhance students’ awareness of their values and the ways in which those values are reflected in their decisions and actions.  We will explore the gap and tension between stated organizational values and those that drive actions.  Students will gain a better understanding of the systems in which they operate, and learn how to identify points of leverage to affect change. Contemporary concepts of integrating values and system-level thinking will be studied, providing the student with knowledge that may influence their philosophy, style and strategy.
