Introduction To Leadership - LDR1100

LDR1100 is open to all Troy University undergraduate students and introduces them to the basics of effective leadership. Most students have held leadership positions in high school and want to extend their leadership influence to campus, church, community, and student government activities.

The course focuses on characteristics of effective leaders, ethics, service, and both leadership and communication skills—with special emphasis on listening effectively.

Dr. Kline, who has held senior leadership positions and regularly teaches leadership, team building and communication skills to military and corporate audiences has guided in the use of an array of teaching methods in this course. Dr. Kline and other skilled instructors teach this course. In all cases, Dr. Kline meets several times with each class and other experienced leaders are guest instructors in the course.

This class focuses on the practical aspects of leadership. Students learn how to practice servant leadership, effective listening and other leadership traits and skills through carefully selected readings and lecture/discussion with experienced leaders. Much class time is spent on skits, exercises and games that reinforce leadership concepts and help students translate learning into actual leadership situations. Students leave this class with their own carefully stated philosophy of leadership to guide them in actual leadership situations at the university, in the community and in life after college.
