  • Leadership Theories I: Three approaches to Leadership Traits, Skills, and Behaviors; Three Theories of Leadership
    • We spend the first part of this module on the traits, skills, and behaviors of the leader. In doing so, we follow the historical path of scholarship on leadership. The second part of this module looks at three theories about the leader-follower relationship, with each theory increasing the followers’ responsibilities for a successful relationship: situational leadership, path-goal theory, and leader member exchange. In this module there are five lessons (1) Defining Leadership; (2) Trait, Skill, and Behavioral Approaches to Leadership; (3)Situational leadership; (4) Path-Goal Theory; and (5) Leader-Member Exchange Theory.

  • Leadership Theories II: Transformational and Authentic Leadership; Servant and Adaptive leadership; Followership; Team Leadership; and Inclusive Leadership
    • Current scholarship gives prominence to four theories of leadership: transformational, authentic, servant, and adaptive. PART ONE of this this module looks at these.
      As we progress through the theories of leadership, we see increasing attention being paid to the followers and PART TWO of this module takes the next logical step in this direction: a study of followership. We will also consider team leadership.
      Up to this point it appears as if the leaders and followers were uniform in their demographics, talents, and needs. In this age of globalization, nothing could be farther from the truth. Similarly, much of the research into leadership ethics seems biased toward Western thinking. The research would be richer and more informative if it took into account all cultures, and different subcultures within the western world. Thus, PART THREE of this module looks at inclusive leadership.

      In this module there are four lessons: Transformational and Authentic Leadership; Servant and Adaptive Leadership; Followership and Team Leadership; and Inclusive Leadership

  • Artificial Intelligence and the Ethical Leader
    • In this module we pick one current topic, Artificial Intelligence, identify its general moral challenges, and then consider what this means for the ethical leader. This should give us insight into a topic that is interesting in its own right, while demonstrating how one might address in a similar fashion other topics challenging today’s ethical leader and the leader of the future.
      This module has two lessons. Lesson1 identifies moral challenges that current and future AI pose. Lesson 2 addresses the need for ethical AI leaders in the face of such challenges, as well as the characteristics required of such leaders.
