Why This Course?
The central thesis of ID Lab is that being an effective leader requires a deep understanding of what it means to be human in a complex world. ID Lab enables the pursuit of self and other-awareness in the service of improved individual, team and organizational performance. The semester-long course requires both a commitment to personal transformation and a willingness to engage with others on a similar journey. The experience integrates an introductory forum, weekly classes, regular introspective reflections, and professional executive coaching to enable students to develop as a principled, innovative leader capable of changing the world.
Executive Coaching: To maximize the opportunity for a positive, developmental experience, throughout the spring you will work, one-on-one, with a professional executive coach. Coaching is often critical to the process of translating the knowledge learned in the classroom into accessible skills. You will begin with an assessment to identify your strengths and weaknesses and then work with your coach to create a leadership development plan that integrates your values and strengths, allowing you to define goals and track progress over time.
