WOS 500-2 Administrative Leadership for Women: Changing Minds Changing Trends PART 2
Faculty: Mary Kendall Hope, Ph.D., Professor of Mediation Studies (Profile)
ABOUT THE COURSE
This course explores the skills and concepts needed to develop female administrative leadership in a mainstream culture unaccustomed to women in decision-making positions. Contemporary beliefs, pre-conceptions, and obstacles are defined and expounded upon and methods for response and address will be explored. Basic cultural norms, traditions, and barriers to female leadership are discussed to assist the student in understanding the most salient challenges that face professional women in roles of administrative leadership. Techniques for meeting these challenges with hands on options are outlined to encourage open minds and open hearts to the potential that female guidance and partnership will provide to the church environment.
