INAF 382 - Char, Conscience and Courage
Answering the call of leadership is not always easy, particularly when one is faced with ethical dilemmas and moral quandaries.  Such situations call for courage in action.  This course will focus on the roles of character and conscience in the demonstration of moral courage by leaders.  In addition, the course will cover the key components that provide one with the courage to take moral action.  Particular attention will be given to the individual, interpersonal, and institutional processes of character and conscience formation.  Finally, the topic of receiving constructive feedback to help in having the courage to challenge yourself as a leader will be discussed. (A guest speaker will facilitate a class discussion.  The speaker will speak on topics such as courageous leadership: taking risks and persevering, using character-building experiences to tap into your courage and inner fortitude, paying attention to your conscience, and having the courage to lead.  In addition to the special guest speaker, one of the class meetings will be held at the U.S. Capitol.
