Why it is relevant for ...

[ Academia ] [ Litigation ] [ Regulatory & Policy ] [ Transactional ] as a Relevant Course outside SLS for those interested in Career/Life Management : Students are sometimes overwhelmed with the multitude of options available to them. If you’d like to develop more self-awareness and a greater sense of personal strategy, consider taking a course like this. It is intended to use basic elements of strategy from management science to help you develop a strategy for designing and managing your life.

General course Description:

This course takes conventional managerial perspectives on the "strategic leadership" of organizations and applies them to the design and management of your life. Fundamental notions of "purpose" and "vision" are translated to the personal level in the form of "dreams" and "aspirations." Basic elements of strategy such as "scope" and "competitive advantage" are applied to help you evaluate fundamental choices about how you lead your life. Constructs such as "priorities," "commitments" and "resource allocation" all have analogues in individual life - as does the core objective of performance and success.

The class begins with a hard-nosed and broad-based self-assessment of the quality of your life along a variety of dimensions including relationships, career, money, spirituality and health. Based on this assessment you will develop a strategy and a set of concrete goals for enhancing the quality of your life in targeted domains.

The course consists of five intensive sessions designed to help you develop the skills and knowledge- but more importantly the insight and capacity - to be more strategic (in best sense of the term) and effective in how you lead your personal and professional life - meaning actively guiding, stewarding, and driving your results to create a life that is truly exceptional. Substantively, the course draws on a variety of different traditions including existential, humanistic, and positive psychology; personal growth, adult development, and the human potential movement; as well as the practice of life and executive coaching. Central themes and learning objectives include: * The development of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and self-control * An understanding of the power of choice and "authoring" one's life * The essential role of dreams and aspirations * The art and discipline of knowing and speaking your truth * The challenges and self-limiting impact of negative thoughts and self-theories * Developing a stance towards oneself and others that is rooted in grace and wisdom

NB: While we expect the class to be helpful and of interest to a wide range of students, it involves a substantial commitment of time and emotional and intellectual energy. It is not for the faint of heart or those who are ambivalent about introspection, feedback, or constructive confrontation.
