LDR-3240 Leaders in History

This course focuses on historical perspectives on leadership: first, on real leaders over thousands of years who demonstrated leadership within multiple contexts (including politics, reform movements, diplomacy, military, business, church, sports, and art); second, on writers/scholars/leaders from different historical eras and contexts who wrote about leadership and whose writings provide a means of understanding leaders acting in history. Together, these two elements of the course will reinforce each other and provide students with the opportunity to reflect on links between leadership practices and leadership concepts across a broad spectrum of world history. The course introduces a diverse group of historical leaders: both men and women; leaders of different races and ethnicities; and persons of different national/cultural backgrounds.
