EDU 6580 - Leadership & Organizational Change


Effective leadership is adaptive and situational and builds on an anthropological understanding of the organizational culture.  Leadership cannot occur in a vacuum.  There are legal and moral limits that define leadership acts and the use of power. The leader must posses the skills to articulate a vision, to establish creative decision making, and to foster continuous personal, professional, organizational, and systemic growth and improvement.  The leader must be able to act in a variety of demanding situations.  Leaders have to identify the challenges that a community must confront no matter how difficult. Students will be required to distinguish between problems and solutions, between preferences and principl;es and between fads and researched strategies.  They will appreciate the complexity of different organizational environments and understand the conditions that motivate individuals to contribute their best.
