Leadership in Practice: Leading in the World: Diplomatic and Military Perspectives

Much is known and has been written about the principles of leadership. These principles can serve as excellent guidelines for those with the responsibility for organizing and directing others. Yet ultimately, leadership, like most professional and life skills, is only acquired and improved through practice. During this course, the instructor will introduce students to theories and principles of leadership and discuss various leadership challenges experienced during his professional career. Each class will consist of a lecture by the instructor, class discussion, and 30-minute student sections during which small groups will examine a hypothetical leadership problem and then present their insights to the entire class.

Faculty: Karl Eikenberry, Director U.S.-Asia Security Initiative and Professor of Practice, Stanford University
