This course will take a strengths-based approach to fostering the essential individual leadership and communication capabilities needed for managers in business and public administration. These capacities are necessary for collaborating, influencing and acting as an effective change agent for sustainability in any type of business, organization or community. We will explore various aspects of the human dimension of sustainability including social justice, work/life balance, emotionally intelligent team building and the personal aspects of learning, change, commitment and courage. We will practice communication skills and strengthen our personal effectiveness through self assessment, feedback and practice in a reflective, supportive environment.
