EDUC 707 - Leading from Within: Theory and Foundations of Leadership

Prerequisite, Ph.D. in education major. Conventional wisdom tells us that the path to enlightenment leads through self-reflection. So does the path to leadership. This course considers the self as a foundation for leadership development and practice. Classical and contemporary leadership theories will be reviewed, and we will build an understanding of emerging theories and the role of inner work within each. Students will spend time reflecting on their own leadership knowledge, practices, and capacities as a way to further understand and develop a broader leadership practice and lens. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
