In a world in which most organisations, communities, and societies face enormous challenges, leadership is critical. This course gets to the core of leadership and getting things done. 'Power and influence' is a course for those of you who want to make things happen, despite the obstacles that might stand in your way. It is about understanding power dynamics and learning to use them as effective tools for analysing your surroundings and achieving your goals. During the course, we intend to unearth your implicit theories and feelings about power and influence. These have a profound impact on how you perceive problems and opportunities and subsequently, how you decide upon particular courses of action.
This course is for 2nd year MIA, MPP and MDS students only.
