B7720-001: Executive Leadership

Block Week 4, Block week Oct 3 - 7

Instructor: William Klepper


The goal of this course is to help you develop your leadership potential. Beyond intelligence and technical savvy, what separates leaders from average managers is a set of individual skills, such as the ability to make sound decisions under ambiguous circumstances, and a set of social skills, such as the ability to build productive working relationships among team members. This course identifies these critical individual and social skills and illustrates how you may use them to gain an extra edge in your career.

The emphasis of this course is on organizing, directing, motivating and influencing other people within, and outside of, your organization. Although some class time is conducted in a conventional lecture format, much of the class consists of an assortment of experiential exercises and class discussion.
