Course Description

Leadership in Healthcare

Course Description:

This course takes the perspective that leadership in healthcare systems is about individuals, roles, culture, and systems. All need to be included to comprehend the nature of, the development of, and the practice of leadership. Furthermore, leadership is not about compulsion, coercion or manipulation, but does include dynamic influence processes. It is not about management, but includes the notion of management, including self-management, as a factor in leadership. Leadership represents a holistic view of the relationships among individuals, cultures and systems. It proposes three distinctions that will assist in clarifying thinking about leadership, its development and practices: leading, leader, and leadership. It recognizes how individuals—in any type of organization—can bring an organization together with limited formal power, and can help an organization move in a new direction. It also explores the moral and ethical challenge that the engagement of people by a leader must be voluntary and free, while it recognizes that psychological, cultural and systemic factors both support and limit that freedom. It introduces leadership theory and practice, concerning how individuals influence and work within organizations, as well as are influenced by others and context in fulfilling leadership requirements.


Dimensions in Creativity

Course Description:

The many dimensions of scientific and artistic creativity are studied as well as the way creativity relates to social-cultural influences, gender, family background, personality factors and cognitive styles. This course examines the creative process, the creative person, the creative product and the creative environment. Imagery and symbolization and aesthetic issues are explored.
