What you will learn:

Over the last decade, self-awareness, the foundation of emotional intelligence, has risen as a critical skill for leaders at every level. Headlines like “Self-Awareness Can Help Leaders More Than an MBA Can” appear frequently in publications like the Harvard Business Review, pointing towards the emphasis of the topic in the business world.

By paradoxically looking inward, leaders can unlock important insights into their emotional experiences, resulting in positive change for themselves, the teams they lead, and even in their relationships. This Elective will explore the importance of self-awareness as a foundational leadership skill and introduces a research-based toolkit to help develop self-awareness.

This is open and encouraged for anyone who considers themself a leader.
