ENTREP 395: Becoming the Leader You Want to Be

Quarter Offered

Spring: Mondays and Wednesdays, 12:30 – 1:50 p.m. CT, Evanston


When creating a new product, design, or experience, we have to be curious and brave – with ourselves and with our team. To become a thoughtful and creative leader, we need to form connection with others and build strong relationships built on trust and belonging. Once these relationships have been formed, we progress into using empathy and strategic communication to continue to grow our own personal leadership and foster the strengths in each of our team members. This course will examine how communication and relationships are the foundation of leadership and how we can be influential and ethical when leading others and ourselves toward state-of-the-art discovery and development. 

NOTE: This class formerly ran in Spring 2023 as ENTREP 395: How Communication and Relationships Create Innovative Leaders (and Innovative Design) – if you have taken that course, do not enroll in ENTREP 395: Becoming the Leader You Want to be, as this is the same course under a different title.
