Using student submitted case studies from a variety of leadership settings and contexts, this course will engage students in curated conversations about effective leadership in an ever changing world. Students will engage focused and generative reading designed to spark their leadership imagination. These readings will be enhanced by engaging lecture material that seeks to encourage student reflection and conversation. Beyond the already included expertise of students, there will be some rooted conversations in topics such as adaptive and technical leadership, system theory, interpreting ministry and cultural context for leadership, discerning the leading of the Holy Spirit in individual and communal leadership, – all with strong links to the comprehending more of the mission of God in our world.
