Welcome to the Department of Leadership and Management, where you can expand your capacity as a leader, change agent, consultant, coach, or educator. We seek students like you, who have a passion for change and a desire to shape the future of organizations and communities as humanistic, purposeful, and sustainable. We offer you the opportunity to learn sustainable business practices, new management practices, and leadership principles in a supportive, dynamic learning environment.

While many programs focus on developing leadership competencies and change management skills, the programs we offer prepare you to: 

  • understand the systemic challenges and transformative opportunities in organizations and communities today;
  • work collaboratively with others in designing,and implementing social systems change;
  • meet the course qualifications for Associate Certified Coach level of the International Coach Federation or for the Bronze-level LEAN certification of the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (Seattle MA only)
  • create learning communities that continue to evolve the capacity for leadership and change.

You will experience your own transformative learning in our programs while you develop the knowledge and skills to address and facilitate change.
