Applied Leadership Skills

As part of their demonstration of competence, Resilient Leadership students are required to take a leadership role in a substantial project that leads to increased sustainability in an organizational setting or to complete a formal written thesis. This course is designed to support students through this process. Students study and gain hands-on experience in essential, traditional leadership skills and start to apply these skills through developing a proposal for either an applied project or formal written thesis. Theory and practical applications of conflict resolution, mediation, and other selected skills are presented. Elements of project design and proposal writing are covered. Classes focus on coaching, feedback, analysis, and presentation of the applied leadership projects. In addition to the course faculty, students choose a faculty mentor to work with. Required for MA Resilient Leadership students (both tracks).
