MAM 8027 - Thrival for Distributed Adaptive Leadership

In the context of the Executive and Civic Leadership Specialization, "thrival" is held in contrast to "survival." The VUCA (volatile,uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) nature of the environments in which leaders, teams, enterprises, and communities of interest frequently operate tends to increase stress and degrade performance. Participants in this specialization course learn individual and collective practices for nurturing self-awareness and vital emotional/relational engagement through taking responsibility for personal safety, inclusion of multiple perspectives, management of triggers and hungers; and clarity of values and purpose. 3 credit(s)
