The Global Leader
The “Global Leader” is a co-listed INTS/DYNM course, developed as part of the Lauder Institute’s new Global Program that will prepare students for leadership roles in international and culturally diverse environments. The course will focus on developing skills through a hands-on approach that includes using case studies, in-class exercises, movie clips, and class discussion, with readings that emphasize theory and application. The course is comprised of two modules. The first module – Globally Capable Leadership – will introduce students to the core qualities of leadership that transcend cultures, as well as examine how cultural context influences leadership efficacy. The second module - Managing across Borders – will teach students how to negotiate effectively in a variety of contexts, including conflict resolution, transactional settings, conflict resolution, and across borders, such as those of gender, ethnic identity, national culture, and differences in values and beliefs.
