Leadership for students at Emory University's Goizueta Business School

Leadership For Students

  • Leadership Development (Rick Gilkey)

    At Goizueta, the idea of creating principled leaders isn’t relegated to a single course or passing notion, it’s infused into every aspect of your MBA experience. Every student participates in our Leadership Development course. You’ll delve into key values that drive principled, effective leaders. You’ll also explore other important leadership areas such as self-awareness, resilience, high performing teams, influencing others, and giving/receiving feedback. From there, you’ll dig into more advanced topics such as leading & facilitating teams, coaching, mentoring and ethics.

    Managing Groups and Teams (Jill Perry-Smith)

    Team work is prominent in a variety of organizational, social, and professional settings. Yet, many misconceptions exist about teams that hinder their effectiveness. The course will cover the theory and processes of group and team behavior. A variety of behavioral topics will be covered (e.g. innovation, power & politics, social networks) with an emphasis on group contexts. Examples of the types of group contexts considered include special project work groups, business units, and top management teams. The course is intended for students who seek a greater understanding of teams and who wish to increase their competence in managing and working effectively in team contexts. This course is also suitable for students interested in expanding their knowledge of the people side of organizational life.

    Leadership and Lifework (Peter Topping)

    Will explore the changing requirements of effective leadership in a new economy and global environment; this will include examining the best current thinking of leadership practices in an organizational context as well as helping the students to achieve richer understanding of their own leadership styles, strengths and areas for development.
