Military Leadership

Aug 2021 - Current

I teach PL300 (Military Leadership) is a multidisciplinary study of leadership in organizations. Cadets gain a pragmatic understanding of the behavioral, organizational, and sociological sciences, and apply that knowledge to become better leaders, develop better leaders, and make their organizations more effective. A representative list of topics explored includes: leader and leadership development, character and its development, perceptions and biases, decision making, motivation, power and influence, multiple leadership theories, counseling, negotiations, team dynamics, cohesion and group development, conflict management, organizational justice, organizational culture, organizational change, socialization, and leadership in extremis. In addition to applying knowledge of these topics, cadets develop a leadership portfolio which helps refine and inform their personal approach to leading.
