Professional Leadership and Communication

EDU 7273 3 Quarter Hours
Course Level CPS - Graduate
Description Focuses on both the analysis of organizational communication and the application and practice of communication strategies for leaders at all levels of the organization. Examines organizational communication—the message, what needs to be communicated and why, and how it should be communicated. Considers the messenger who informs and the organizational meaning-maker who articulates values and vision. Offers students an opportunity to practice and show proficiency in several communication areas: leading and participating in meetings, speaking/giving presentations to large and small audiences, responding to questions in press conference conditions, reducing interpersonal conflict and dealing with difficult personalities, creating collaborative engagement, and facilitating negotiation sessions. Reviews principles and techniques in each area. Uses simulated exercises and coaching to improve skill sets.
