THEO 490 - W01 Leadership Religions Workplace - - W - - - - 1730 - 2115 JRC 246
Description of course Leadership Religions Workplace : CRN: 43065 4 Credit Hours
This course develops in students the knowledge, skill, and practical wisdom to be interreligious leaders in today's world. Interreligious leadership is energetic engagement with the religious diversity that characterizes our societies and communities today. Interreligious leaders engage their own and other religious traditions to find wisdom and other spiritual resources that fuel their inner and outer work. They pay attention with curiousity and appreciation to religious differences, and then proactively build mutual understanding across these differences through dialogue. Through interaction with guest speakers, community engagement activities, case studies, role plays, a range of course readings and videos, and reflective writing to integrate learning, this bridge course will widen religious literacy well beyond the Christian tradition, foster practical leadership skills, and expose students to a range of professional scenarios where interreligious issues generate challenge and opportunity. Drawing on the fields of spirituality, leadership development, interreligious dialogue, comparative theology, and conflict resolutions, this course prepares students to contribute to human flourishing in a more just society through successful and satisfying professional lives in which they are engaged with their own and other's religious identities,commitments and practices. Practical examples and cases will come from a range of industries, business functions, and professions, such as health care, manufacturing, technology, education, public policy, law, engineering, marketing and finance.
