Description: Leadership theory, leadership skills, and self-reflection. Focuses on three questions: What is leadership? What kind of leader am I? How can I develop as a leader? Built around the 3 C's MIT Sloan Leadership Model: catalyzing action, contingent on context, and change signature. Leadership is about making things happen, creating change, with a deep understanding of the context and who you are as an individual. Aims to increase knowledge and skills related to catalyzing action, including how to make sense of context, using power and influence, building momentum for change, creating a visionary speech, and developing leadership capabilities in others. Includes a number of self-assessment exercises examining personal history, emotional intelligence, and catalyzing action skills to help identify personal change signature.
