- Other Course Information
Leadership Perspective develops personal qualities that enhance your capacity to lead. It addresses both one’s philosophical orientation and one’s behavior. In short, it is about how effective leaders think and how they act. It intends to inspire leadership that is both effective and virtuous.
In class you will learn philosophy, theory, and methods to produce effective leadership of sustainable organizations. You will enhance your ability to promote the “triple bottom line” of prosperity, social justice, and concern for the natural environment. You will learn what effective leader behavior is and the importance of modeling it. You will also learn the benefits of conceiving of organizations as communities rather than as a jungle or a war zone or a competition. You will learn two extremely fundamental insights into leadership success too seldom practiced in America. They are: 1) To concentrate on inputs, not outcomes. American managers are obsessed with outcomes. Therefore, they don’t achieve them as well as they might; and, 2) To promote cooperation, not competition, among organizational members. American managers are also obsessed with competition. Deliberately fostering it can be an extremely widespread, extremely costly mistake. Fostering cooperation, instead, absolutely produces better results. You will further recognize the rewards of virtuous behavior and to strive for a life that benefits yourself, your organization, and your world. If you don’t intentionally aim at these targets, it is unlikely that you will hit them.
