Barlow [email protected] (630) 881-8467 Office Hours By appointment UH 2204 Generally extremely available by e-mail Objective: This course is designed to prepare you to lead and manage globally. It is based on the assumption that if you do not have leadership and communication skills that engage people's trust and cooperation, it does not matter what you know because no one will listen to you.

Portfolio Trade; Updated edition (March 27, 2007) ISBN-13: 978-1591841494 ± Downloaded articles from the UIC Library and my consulting company, The Co-Creativity Institute Approach: From the beginning you will be applying the readings to your own experience, your own life, and your own career plans. In class exercises will increase your ability to communicate and to invoke the followership and trust of those you manage or collaborate with. You will read and comment on your readings each week before class, allowing the in-class lectures, discussions, and exercises to build upon that knowledge.
