Peter Drucker describes the majority of today’s labor force as knowledge workers. Expanding levels of education, training, and income create a labor force much different from our industrial past. The emphasis on participation, balanced lives, and personal fulfillment elevates the role of leadership in organizations. Leading people and managing processes is a central theme of this unit.

570. Leading Organizations - Dr. James Dahl
Leading organizations is a people-centered activity highly influenced by the ethical values of leaders. Managers get the work of the business done through people by setting goals and executing action plans; leaders help motivate people by setting the compass of a business, by creating a vision, setting values, and building bridges to the community, to ideas about the future and to internal stakeholders. This course examines leadership management and its ethical and valued-based foundation.

580. Cases in Strategic Financial Management - Dr. Tatiana Isakovski
The course will use cases each day to develop a deeper understanding of the complex issues involved in strategic issues confronting corporate management.
