Leadership and Communication: Challenges and Interdependencies

EDU 7270 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Reviews the literature on organizational communication and examines contemporary cases relating to leadership and communication. Organizational success depends on effective internal and external communication. In large part, leaders influence communication behavior in organizations and can affect the credibility of formal communication networks, communication behavior during crises, organizational culture, the extent to which honesty is characteristic of employee interaction, and even the prevalence of the organizational grapevine. While leaders can affect organizational communication, communication proficiency can also affect the perceptions of leadership quality. Deficiencies in communication, regardless of administrative wisdom, can render the most brilliant individual an ineffective leader. Requires students to analyze their own organizations in terms of leadership and communication and to develop a communication plan for effective leadership.
