The idea behind this course is that future executives need to understand that in the chaotic and ever-changing world, a responsible leader needs a strong sense of purpose, conviction, and robust values to guide their everyday behavior. At the same time she or he needs to be flexible in the approaches the organization takes in tackling everyday challenges. To date in the MBA program, participants have been exposed to the fundamentals of management and tools necessary for understanding strategy, organization, and implementation. This course takes the students beyond the tools and techniques of business and makes them think about their own role in organizations and societies. We also look at the leader’s responsibility for their personal lives and careers. This course gives participants a chance to evaluate their own leadership philosophies and to discuss and reflect upon them with their peers. The Module provides various lenses for such an analysis: from personal reflections to work with faculty and experimenting with leadership tools and methods. On a skills side, the course also provides participants with the human interaction competencies that are necessary for successful handling of situations that involve people in work and non-work life.
