    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018 / Fall 2019 / Fall 2020
    Everyone can benefit from taking the time to reflect upon and grow their leadership ability. The purpose of this experience is to ground students in a community of similarly minded, high caliber individuals, to equip them with leadership insights and best practices, and to encourage them to achieve their greatest leadership goals. This will be accomplished by careful discussion, readings, and perhaps, most importantly, exposure to key chief executive officers and other very highly accomplished leaders. Although we discuss the unique aspect of being a woman in business, men are welcomed to share in the leadership experience. Formerly MGMT 1001.
