Leadership, Motivation, and Power (285A)

This course is predicated on the assumption that only after getting human nature straight, demystified for mutation caused by people conforming to pretentious protocols, can a valid assessment be made of prevailing theories of leading, motivating and exerting authority at work. And, since self-deception, self-centered thinking and self-interested bias is inevitable, further steps need to be taken to demystify these factors as well.  The latter is accomplished by raising each student's awareness of the historical and psychological roots that underlie their predilections to behave as well as what they expect from others.
