OH5400 - Evolutionary Change for a Sustainable Future

Credits: 3

The 21st Century is a time of unprecedented change in which longstanding institutions are failing or deconstructing and the human race is facing enormous challenges. Such a time calls upon individuals and organizations to become activists for change and architects of new social
constructions. Within this context, evolution and transformation are foundational processes for meaningful and contributory personal and organizational change. This course guides and assists participants in contextualizing change efforts in an awareness of global interconnectedness
and concern for the long-term viability of humanity’s partnership with the planet and in developing the habits of mind and heart which will enable them to lead with an open mind, compassionate heart,
and good intention. Participants will explore emerging paradigms for leadership and change and use their learning to enhance organizational effectiveness, well being, and sustainability.
