Leadership & Imagination

3-day On-campus Immersion – Spokane, Washington

 

Why is creative imagination an important leadership capacity? How do leaders employ their imaginative processes within the organization? What can leaders do to stimulate and nurture their imagination? Through the theme of ‘seeing and seeing again‘ perspectives from the liberal arts (i.e. art, drama, history, literature, music, psychology), students are challenged to apply and expand their creative and imaginative capacity. This experiential class provides opportunities to meet and engage with class members as well as faculty and staff in a face to face setting, establishing relationships to support your success throughout the program and beyond graduation.

Leadership and Imagination is an examination of creativity in leadership through an analysis of imagination, especially in the arts and science. The course emphasizes the role of imagination in forming cultural images and perceptions of leaders and their functions. You will evaluate your own and others\’ leadership in the context of imagination and the creative process.

As a team-taught class, members our faculty rotate the sessions. The specific faculty for your session can be found on the Syllabus that will be posted to Blackboard the first day of class. Other faculty members may occasionally be included.
