LEAD 108: Leadership from Within: Meditation, Creativity, and Connection (WELLNESS 108)

This interdisciplinary and practice-based course develops foundational life skills that enable students to realize their potential in school, work, and life in the 21st century. Research over the last few decades has shown that one's ability to thrive is highly correlated with growing and developing as a person: emotionally, socially, cognitively, and psychophysically. This course fosters inner growth through a specific form of evidence-based meditation called Transcendental Meditation, shown to enhance awareness, creativity, resilience, and balance. Students will also develop key communication, relationship building, and collaboration skills. The course features recent research on holistic human development, neuroscience of performance, and integrative leadership. Its design is based on a training program utilized by thousands of leaders of larger established organizations, venture backed startups, NGO's, and government agencies. This integrative approach to leadership development can reduce stress and lead to emotional balance, mental clarity, and increased effectiveness in life pursuits.

LEAD 152: Dialogue Lab: Exploring and Cultivating our Capacity to Engage Across Difference

In an increasingly diverse, complex, and polarized world, dialogue across differences in identity and perspective is a practice laden with challenges and opportunities. Nonetheless, leading effectively requires the ability to communicate, learn, and collaborate across difference. In this class, we will engage the practice of dialogue as one framework and set of skills through which to hone this ability. First, we will explore ourselves as social beings; how do each of our identities and positionalities inform how we navigate the world? We will then make meaning of dialogue as a distinct mode of communication, while addressing contemporary issues like cancel culture and free speech on college campuses. Culminating in in-class dialogue sessions led by student members of the teaching team, students will not only refine the skill and art of dialogue but also emerge as leaders who are capable of fostering more empathetic and just environments.
