Course Description:

Learn about stories and their implications for leadership in diverse fields. Case studies include experiences and strategies from business, human services, political science, nursing, cultural leaders, and community activists. This rich mix of approaches allows you to understand how your "stories" will be received in a wide range of potential leadership situations. Students will learn about story structures, and how the skillful creation and articulation of stories is a fundamental part of the leader's vocation. Students will learn to assess how leaders utilize storytelling to frame issues, and how they update personal, political, community, and corporate stories to open opportunities in the face of change.
