You are a leader!  You have influence!  Someone, at some time, follows 
your example or suggestions! 
he strong demand for excellent leadership in all organizations, at all

More than ?being in charge? or exerting influence, leaders ? effective 
leaders - create positive change for the greater organizational or the 
community good. 

This course will briefly review the history of leadership and then explore 
leadership styles, leadership theories and how both can be seen in today?s 
teams and organizations.  The course also will define general leadership 
characteristics and competencies.   Finally, the course will review and 
discuss leadership issues in the news along with some classic leadership 
issues that organizations and teams have faced. 

In this course, students will assess their own current leadership skills 
and competencies and they will develop personal plans to further develop 
their leadership capabilities. Students will also review and discuss 
Leadership Case Studies and they will be given the opportunity to explore 
and apply their acquired knowledge to Leadership Dilemmas.  Students will
