This course will examine the practical execution of leadership in today’s environment. Using a combination of historical case studies and recent events, we will review how dramatic changes in technology, society, politics, media, and globalization have increased the complexity of the tasks facing modern leaders. Although the course will include the military aspects of leadership, the overall objective will be to study leadership in a wider context, identifying the common factors shared by politics, business, education, warfare, and other fields. Some of the specific topics to be covered will include: the changing leadership environment; the role of the leader; driving change; making difficult decisions; dealing with risk; coping with failure; navigating politics; and the effect of modern media.
