60-Second Syllabus: Leadership Communications in Social Enterprise: Join the conversation!
About This Course:
Who are your favorite leaders and why? The power of language can create change in our individual lives and our world. We’ll explore famous leaders from different cultures and different fields. We’ll listen to history’s activists and revolutionaries, and today’s influencers and change makers. We’ll consider what they seek in the way of economic prosperity, societal wellbeing, environmental sustainability, and purpose in life.
We’ll also look closer to home, for family guides and other mentors who have shaped our ways of seeing and being in the world.
Do you wish to create real connections with your classmates, even remotely? This class will operate as a forum for shared inquiry and meaningful conversation. You’ll have opportunities to express your thoughts and ideals and form lasting bonds of friendship and UWB community.
