Fall 2023 - 61078 - PA 384F - Psychology of Leadership

Psychology of Leadership

This course will draw on psychological research to understand effective leadership as it applies to organizations that set policy and to politics. We will consider psychological research at the level of the individual and group, as well as research at the level of the organization. We also will look through the lens of other academic disciplines where findings are relevant to the psychology of leadership, such as history, sociology, journalism, and business. A central goal of the course is to expand students’ capacity to be effective agents of change and relatedly to enhance students’ ability to see ideas and problems from multiple perspectives.
