Humanistic Leadership

The changing nature of work in the 21st century is driving ”the reconfiguration of jobs to leverage uniquely human skills: empathy, social and emotional intelligence, the ability to set context and define business problems.” In addition, in a society where the workforce is increasingly dispersed, diverse and mobile, traditional command and control styles of leadership no longer have the impact that is needed for long-term organizational success. In this course we will examine the philosophy of Humanistic Leadership; a people-oriented, values driven approach to leadership that centers on enhanced self-awareness, honors human dignity, calls for increased collaboration and trust among stakeholders, and encourages systems thinking to support personal and organizational success. Topics that will be explored include: Emotional Intelligence, Authentic Confidence, Adaptive Leadership, personal mission and vision, communication styles and listening.
