Today’s business leaders confront an increasing array of choices in an environment characterized by constant change. Leadership requires knowledge and technical competence, but as important is the development of the skills needed to align, motivate, and guide diverse teams to perform at the highest levels in rapidly changing environments. This course will utilize a number of methods to engage the students in the kind of decisions that today’s leaders face. Key to the class will be the opportunity to meet with successful alumni from a range of fields, in order to gain their perspectives on the characteristics of successful leadership. Tentatively the class will spend time in both Chicago and Detroit.
