The course is based heavily on Heifetz’s Adaptive Leadership theory, which challenges individuals to think beyond individual, role-based leadership skills and behaviors when enacting change in systems, such as organizations and communities. Prerequisites: Honors eligibility required. Recommended: AG_ED_LD 2250 and AG_ED_LD 2260.
