Session I, May 29-June 28, 2018

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 leadership 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 2018.
