In addition, she has taken several courses and seminars in Native Studies, Educational Psychology, and Family Business. COURSE DESCRIPTION

Course Code: MGMT 300Course Title:Leadership
Calendar Description
This course explores concepts and models often associated with effective leadership to give ideas and structure to students’ personal exploration of the meaning of effective leadership. In the process of examining these concepts and models, students will assess their own personal leadership styles and learn how they can develop leadership skills to enhance their own potential. Encouraging congruency between the students’ definition of effective leadership and their own behaviours allows the students to present themselves in their leadership roles as genuine and authentic. Because of the nature of this skills development course, students must be prepared to go beyond the academic/intellectual in order to internalize their learning (learning in the “affective domain”), identify any need for behavioural changes, and actually demonstrate their movement toward skill development.
