What do leaders actually do? What kinds of traits are important for successful leadership? How do followers influence the behavior of leaders? And what impact does exercising power have on your personality? The course draws from classical political theory (including Plato, Machiavelli, and Max Weber), current "leadership literature," and case studies of decision-making. Among the topics considered are expertise and collaboration, responsibility and accountability, women and leadership, and leadership in various kinds of organizations.
