Course Description
Global leaders must work across three different types of boundaries: interpersonal boundaries, which involve relations with persons who differ from oneself demographically and in other ways; institutional boundaries, which involves working across government, nonprofit, and business organizations; and international boundaries, which involves both individual and institutional engagements that are carried on across national borders. This course introduces students to the latest and best empirical research literature on leadership and how to identify one's own leadership-relevant traits, skills, and signature strengths, and how to learn from past and present global leaders whose careers exemplify ethical and effective boundary-spanning leadership.
