ADGR 8010 Leader as Change Agent (Spring: 3 )


Course Description

A leader’s job is to drive change to respond to a changing environment. The ability to navigate and execute responsive, expedient organizational change is a crucial component for contemporary leaders, yet over 70% of planned change campaigns fail. This course is a study of successful change processes, and the leader's role in creating a culture conducive to change; establishing vision, buy-in and purpose among the influencers; and implementing sustainable, transformative change within an organization. Through the examination and discussion of change theory, case studies, and interviews with change agents, this course considers effective approaches to confronting resistance, as well as leading change both vertically and horizontally. This course includes a leadership style assessment to identify personal strengths and challenges as an influencer and change agent. MEETS ONLINE ON THURSDAYS
