LDR 6220 The Focused Leader
The Focused Leader provides students with insight- and action-based skills focused on understanding oneself and one’s impact on others—skills necessary for effective interactions in the global arena. The course builds upon research in emotional intelligence, mindfulness, and motivation, and gives students an understanding of the role of emotional intelligence as an aspect of personal empowerment and professional effectiveness, in the global context in particular. Students learn methods of managing emotions triggered by differences, develop strategies for building harmonious and productive relationships, and gain tools and strategies to help others develop emotional intelligence. Students will leave the course having identified goals for their own personal development, strategies for meeting those goals, and a plan for implementing those strategies.
