    HESI318E: Exploring Strengths and Values for Effective Leadership - Online

    This course offers students the opportunity to explore the strengths and values of individuals and teams to better understand how to engage in effective, collaborative leadership. Tools such as the Gallup Organization's Clifton Strengths Assessment will be used with a critical lens. Themes of teamwork, problem-solving, diversity and inclusion, coaching others, and conflict resolution are woven throughout the course. Through engaging in this course, students will: 1) Understand leadership as a relational, process-based phenomenon, beyond person-centric conceptions; 2) Explore personal and group strengths and values and how these influence our understanding and practice of leadership.; 3) Practice effective collaboration and dialogue with diverse others, and; 4) Explore the purpose of leadership as making positive change in organizations and communities. This is a seminar-style online course with both synchronous (live class meetings) and asynchronous (outside of class) components.
