Dr R Balasubramaniam; www.drrbalu.com Learning objectives and goals By the end of the course, the students will be able to: a) have a better understanding of Culture and how cultural environments impact and influence one’s thinking. Students will also learn to be more sensitive and appreciative of cultural diversity and understand the construct of Global Citizenship. b) explore reflective leadership and learn to exercise adaptive leadership in multi- cultural settings. c) appreciate that leadership is relational and will be able to have a better understanding of themselves, of others around them and the action that binds their self to others. d) Increase their effectiveness in exercising leadership in their own cultural context and across cultural divides. Course Outline Pre-requisites (if any): None Course: Exercising Leadership for Global Citizenship Globalization affects people from all walks of life and success in any field now demands a global perspective. Universities and Business Schools are now increasingly faced with this question as they see students from diverse backgrounds and cultures come together for academic pursuits. They are faced with students who are looking to pursue global careers that take them to different parts of the world. As their students acquire competencies and knowledge about different subjects, many of them are inadequately prepared for taking on leadership positions. They are challenged by cultural complexity and diversity that a rapidly globalizing world presents them with. Today s problems in areas such as business, trade, education, health care, global warming, human rights and gender issues are complex and demand particular skills for tackling them.

This leadership should be driven by higher values and be at once adaptive, pragmatic, and culturally well informed. It should not only take organizations, communities and society forward in times of increased interconnectedness and rapid change, but also serve as a means of personal self-transformation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
