DESCRIPTION
This course focuses on the ways in which leaders must recognize and respond to a variety of competing value propositions both within and outside their organizations. Whereas management typically involves the creation of incentive systems leadership motivates through the creation of norms, by example and inspiration. Leadership ultimately involves the ability to take the disparate value propositions of various stakeholders and integrate them into a coherent vision. The course is built on the three foundations: basic ethics; behavioral economics; and insights from social psychology. Class sessions typically involve a mix of lecture, in-class discussion of cases and student papers and group projects. Students will write short reflection papers that serve as the basis for class discussion. There will also be two group projects and a final exam.
