LDR 5120 Effective Leadership
Enterprise Leadership Certificate
(3 semester hours credit)
This introductory course establishes personal performance expectations for the critical leadership skills necessary for success in business. Self-awareness is at the heart of effective leadership, and by connecting all five LFGSM Leadership traits students will accurately judge their own performance and behavior and respond appropriately to different business situations. Students will assess their own skills, talents, and personal tendencies accurately to develop a personal leadership plan that they will pursue and develop throughout their degree program. Fundamental concepts and guidelines are reinforced through personal assessment tools, practical assignments, ongoing instructor/peer/self-critique, and participation in team activities. Students fine tune written, oral, and listening skills, as well as learn the basics of teamwork. Subsequent courses will build upon the criteria for excellence in leadership that have been defined in this class.
