Interpersonal Communication for Leadership is a core course for Organizational Leadership and Communication majors at Nebraska Wesleyan University. The course is significant for students of all majors as every person participates in interpersonal relationships in a variety of contexts: leadership, family, friends and colleagues. In this course we will explore the dynamics of human interaction, relational sense-making, and the influence of context and individual variables on relationships. Primary emphasis will be placed on the application of interpersonal communication concepts and theory to leadership contexts.
This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the uniqueness of cultures and the resulting variations in communication preferences and styles. The focus will be on the study of cultural dynamics that influence the exchange of meaning between individuals and groups of different cultural and/or racial backgrounds, particularly as this applies to global interactions. Strategies and skills for successfully communicating across cultural barriers will be discussed and implemented.
This course is taught only through University College.
