The development of effective global leadership skills is critical in today’s complex and interconnected world. The purpose of this course is to promote global leadership skills in students (self-knowledge, curiosity, cross-cultural competence, collaboration, intercultural communication, etc.) and their application within interpersonal interactions, organizations, and systems in a global context. We will examine leadership concepts and theories, the role of identity/power/privilege in global leadership, intercultural communication theories and strategies, and global leadership ethics. As a student in the course and as a Semester at Sea voyager, you will be inspired to explore your unique motivations and role as a leader in a global context. You will be encouraged to extend yourself, to self-reflect, and to act humbly and openly in the exploration of leadership concepts and competencies required for successful human interactions in a global context.
