Traditionally, courses in management and leadership have taken a psychological approach and discussed the traits that are required for being an effective manager and leader. However, with what has been called the “language turn”, recognition of the power of language and other communication practices in creating our social realities has resulted. This course, “Establishing Leadership through the Power of Talk,” capitalizes on this turn and provides anyone the opportunity to establish him or herself as a leader through knowledge of and the development of “leadership talk”. The course will provide students with a brief introduction to this new paradigm for thinking about leadership as well as materials that show how talk can construct leadership in different ways. Students will then be asked to practice their abilities of analyzing leadership talk so that they can better recognize the dynamics of language in the workplace and begin to use this new knowledge to influence others and to establish themselves as leaders, regardless of their place in an organizational setting.
