While early studies suggested that leadership was limited to a set of innate traits inherited by a person at birth, more recent scholars have concluded that the core characteristics of leadership could indeed by learned and even improved upon through conscious reflection and practice. This class takes a broad approach to leadership studies by focusing on scientific studies of both leaders and followers. We attempt to define observable and repeatable characteristics of leadership and discuss their practice in real settings. Throughout the semester, leaders from the academic, political, and business communities visit class to discuss their approaches to leadership and their thoughts on leadership theory. By the end of this course, students develop and communicate their personal leadership platform.
Preference for students in the Honors Sophomore Living Learning Communities.
