EDU 520 Leadership and Organizational Behavior

3 Semester Units

Leadership and Organizational Behavior will review major leadership behavior patterns and strategies that promote effectiveness in organizations. Focus will be placed on the principles of school leadership, as well as specific theories behind organizational behavior. Students will be challenged to become more self-aware of their personal leadership style and will be able to develop their abilities to influence others, whether or not they have positional or hierarchical authority over them.

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Analyze how leadership concepts and practices have evolved over the centuries to the present day.
  • Compare and contrast leadership with management and examine how the distinction is not clear-cut in schools.
  • Evaluate the purpose of educator evaluation systems for the organization and the individual.
  • Assess how models of leadership can help future and current leaders become more effective.
  • Consider the role that meaningful work plays in an individual’s lifespan in American culture.
