Session I, May 29 - August 6, 2018
Online

Being an effective leader in any organization will require individuals to be self-aware, as well as to understand how they impact the world around them. Mounting evidence suggests that a significant determinant of leadership effectiveness is having an accurate perception of one's own behavior (e.g., decision-making tendencies, approaches to resolving conflict, motivational effectiveness, etc.). Students will learn about leadership theories and explore their own behaviors. This 1-credit course fulfills the Leadership IP requirement for the Gabelli School of Business and is limited to full-time Gabelli School of Business students graduating in summer or fall 2019.
