Building on MORS-430 (Leadership in Organizations), this 5-week course moves the focus from mid-level leadership to the senior executive level of the organization. The goal is to provide insight into leading at "height and scale" - that is, what management and leadership look and feel like when you oversee 1,000 to 100,000 people and $500M to billions in revenue. How do you lead when you are only one person and you can't "do" the work of the organization yourself, you can only steer those who do?

To make this perspective as concrete as possible, we will focus on four key behavioral levers/activities that leaders have available to them to shape and have impact within large, complex organizations.

Four Key Behavioral Levers/Activities:
- Establishing a power base ("power")
- Navigating the organizational dynamics of change ("politics")
- Honing and leveraging your communications skills ("talk")
- Building your senior leadership team

The 1/2 credit course will include 5 plenary sessions (2 hours/session) and 5 small-group discussion sections (1 hour/session). Each plenary session will combine lecture and senior executive guest speakers who will build on that week's topic by sharing their own insights and experiences. Discussion groups will follow each plenary as forums for reacting and engaging in dialogue with a smaller group of classmates about lecture content, readings and speakers.
