About the course:
Life is a zero-sum game, right? The more you strive to win in one dimension (such as your work or school), the more you have to sacrifice in the other dimensions (family, community, and the private self). Described in the best-selling, award-winning book Total Leadership: Be a Better Leader, Have a Richer Life (Harvard Business, 2008), this course teaches you a proven method that shows how you don't always have to make trade-offs between life's most important domains, and certainly not as often as you think. Nor should you! A trade-off mindset makes people feel all manner of stress - unfocused, resentful, and overwhelmed. It hurts those you care about and prevents you from performing effectively to produce results that matter in every part of your life.
This practical course has been taught to thousands of students at Wharton and elsewhere by professor Stew Friedman since 2001. You will learn how to articulate your values and personal leadership vision, cultivate supportive relationships with people who matter most in all parts of your life, and continually experiment with how you get things done to better align your actions with your values -- and so produce positive sustainable change. This step-by-step method for pursuing what Friedman calls "four-way wins" has enabled people all over the world to become more successful and satisfied leaders in all parts of life: work (or school), home, community, and the private self (mind, body, and spirit).
Stewart D. Friedman will be the course instrcutor.
The course will have a workload of 3-6 hours of work / week.
It will be taught in English and subtitles will be available in English.
