Always Do the Reading
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
That course is a hybrid of Business and Psychology. I learned a lot about leadership theories and the interaction between manager and team members. Some theories are really challenging and will stretch your mind, like "boundaryless organizations". However our Professor did an amazing job to teach us the material in a practical way with class exercises and group work.
Since the theory of "boundaryless organizations" was so new to me I did some research on my own and came across the CEO of Zappo's Tony Hsieh and his vision for the company and Las Vegas. I decided to write a Thesis paper about it for my Honors Program. The idea of an organization without any hierarchy seems impossible. Everything around us has an order. Minimizing hierarchy to empower people is possible if they act responsible and in union with the company culture. I am curios how Hsieh tries to reach his goal and watch his projects.

Advice for students:
Be aware that your values and your picture of things will be questioned and challenged. Expect to study and keep up with homework. Do research on your own if you interested in a particular area.
