MGMT 8405M - Challenging Conventional Leadership and Influence♦


(5 cr.) A desirable trait of modern managers and leaders is the ability to assess multiple perspectives and the confidence to assert change, if needed. Leaders are also influenced by the function of power. Students will consider the full spectrum of leadership behavior from autocracy to emergent consensus and how rights and powers are distributed to people to achieve their responsibilities in an organization. The power structure also challenges conventional views of organizational structures and influences leadership behaviors.

Students in this course are provided with the opportunity to diverge from conventional leadership ideology and behavior through exploration of alternative models and lessons related to power and authority structures. Students will explore ways to reinvent the leadership and organizational structures based on unconventional organizational models. Students analyze and develop new and promising methods, principles, and systems about how new structures and leadership can support the needs of a global environment.
♦Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
