Welcome to LDR 301: Leadership Development, a 5 week course designed to help you better understand yourself as a leader and develop your leadership skills. In this course, we will be focusing on self-assessment and evaluation as key tools for personal and professional growth.
Through assessments and evaluations, you will gain valuable insights into your strengths and weaknesses as a leader. This self-awareness is an essential foundation for leadership development, as it helps you to identify areas where you can improve and build on your natural abilities.
In this course, you will have the opportunity to explore various leadership assessments and evaluation tools, and learn how to use them effectively. You will also have the chance to reflect on your own leadership style and explore ways to optimize your strengths and address your weaknesses.
By the end of this course, you will have a deeper understanding of yourself as a leader and a clear plan for how to continue growing and developing your leadership skills. Are you ready to embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth? Let’s get started!
Students are required to have an electronic journal that contains all of their notes for every content assignment in the course. There is a required minimum of one paragraph of notes per hour spent on a content assignment. The journal will be submitted in the Lesson Five Quiz when the course is completed.
Each week, students will perform a casual interview that relates to the content they are studying. A student can interview the same person as often as they want, and ideally, your interviewee is a person that is familiar with the current content you are studying. Students will submit a summary of their interviews at the end of the course.
