ADGR 7730 Leadership and Innovation (Fall: 4 )
Positioning organizations and individuals for success amid volatile global financial, economic, technological and political uncertainty demands principled, insightful leadership as well as imaginative, innovative and operational expertise. This course examines disruptive sources (including fraud, scandals), the accelerating pace of change which renders past experience and knowledge insufficient, and the need for leaders making decisions about the future to think and behave like innovators. The focus is on creating open optimistic climates that engage employees, develop skills and talents, and promote continuous knowledge sharing, smart work designs and creative problem solving. The course explores strategies critical to influencing performances and implementing customized responses to motivation, morale and performance issues.
