David Frost PRE-REQS: None Description: What do successful women leaders do that other women don't? Is there a difference? How do some women successfully start new businesses or take time off to be with their families and then come back? Are there things men need to understand or skills they need to develop to work successfully with women leaders? This course will study the McKinsey Leadership Project Initiative which interviewed 85 women around the world (and a few good men), the Aspen Institute's Council of Women Leaders as well as Organizational Development theory and research. Based upon cases, readings, self-assessment and guests, we will develop leadership models, skills and connections that build upon the other Leadership courses offered at Aurora University that will help students become better leaders. Students will complete a new career development plan as part of the course. We will meet with a variety of very senior women leaders in the relaxed lake side setting of George Williams College?s conference center in Williams Bay, WI (May 12)and at Aurora University's IL campus (May 19). This is designed to be a hybrid course blending residential, day-long sessions with speakers and team activities with online readings, discussion forums and assignments. No prerequisites.

Dennis Kripp PRE-REQS: None Description: One change that has affected most of the world's population the greatest is the increase in globalization of social, cultural, and economic activity. Organizations are global, so are businesses, communications, and finances. Work has become global. We need to understand the emerging globalization of organizations to understand and shape our present and future. This course focuses on the management of international business and organizational behavior. The basic thrust of this course is to aid students in understanding organizations from a global perspective, rather than a North American or Western European perspective. A second intention is to present a cultural perspective on organizational behavior and management. The final aim is to provide a student experience that improves interpersonal behavior concerning cultural variations found in international organizations. Why Poland? Poland is a dynamically developing member of the European Union with a young society, strong economy and good prospects for the future. The country has migrated from an era of communism to one of developing capitalism. Poles are known for their hospitality. Everybody is allowed to cross the Polish border. Global companies are choosing Poland because of the availability of a highly qualified lab, presence of universities, support of the authorities, and the largest market in Central Europe.
