MBA 514 Leadership, Influence, and Currency of Trust

This class guides students through the process of designing their personalized leadership paradigm, focusing on  practical skills and valuable attributes that will maximize leadership success. The framework for this class takes a  design process approach to leadership in a mindfully engaging manner, which consists of five major design  dimensions and challenges. These include (1) design self, (2) design relationships, (3) design others’ success, (4)  design culture, and (5) design the future. The design process approach follows the philosophy that each key  dimension of the leadership paradigm can be purposefully planned and developed. In the major taxonomy of  designing relationships, a significant emphasis is placed on analyzing a leader’s influence in parallel with the  concept of currency of trust.
