Organizational Leadership

Spring 2016 Online


My name is Will Salyards and I get to accompany you on the exciting journey into exploring how we use influence in our social systems. The one word phrase for this is "leadership." My hope is that our work here will challenge you to see yourself in the larger picture as well as give you the practical tools to make leadership a daily possibility.

No doubt we will consider leadership in multiple contexts, not the least of which will be ourselves. Get set for a great ride!

To get started please begin by completing the Jessup Online Student Orientation [if you haven't already done so]. Next, be sure to download the course syllabus and read it carefully. Then tell us something about yourself in the Introductions Forum. If you will, also tell us just a little about where you lead and how you think this class will enhance your work. After you've completed these task, you're ready for Week 1.

Let me know if you have any questions or if there's any way I can help you.

Will Salyards, Ph.D.
