SLCGlobal Leadership and Team Decision Making MinorRequired
This course prepares students to demonstrate leadership competencies through the lens of a global mindset. The more students are exposed to new experiences, the more they will be adaptable to the ever changing challenges globally, today and in the future. The course will enhance their ability to articulate and apply their understanding of what it means to practice being a global minded leader today while seeking to be employed in their field of study following graduation. Based on readings, experiences and courses associated with the global leadership and team decision making minor, students will be asked to reflect on the way their course topics and cultural experiences in four countries (United States, Czech Republic, Germany and the United Kingdom) compare and contrast the way in which their prior knowledge and understanding of global leadership and teamwork in organizations was to what develops over their cohort experiences abroad.

This course will be a capstone for a cohort participating with the Global Leadership & Team Decision Making Minor that is primarily for a Study Abroad experience. Primary focus will be on developing the student’s personal understanding for how to lead with a global mindset, as well as how to work in teams with a global mindset. This, in turn, will better prepare them for how to effectively address a situation and be able to articulate why this learning matters and how to apply it in future situations.

Completion of this requirement will be provided during class through group (small/large) discussions focusing on societal problems and case studies looking through the lenses of multiple decision making models comparing and contrasting the models with how the problem was solved and/or could be solved using the models. Learning that generates through discussion will be shared with the class, at large, and how it can be applied in other settings.

Then explain what and how you believe you can now apply this understanding into your experiences upon returning to the states and when working with employers in the future.
presentation200ptsThe intent of this assignment is to allow your group to work together to identify a collective understanding for how team decision making compares and contrasts across cultural environments based on your experiences both in the United States and Abroad. Please address the following: Similarities and differences between cultural environments; Pre-conceived notions vs. actual experience/observation; and Application for leaders working in teams based on your new understanding on the topic in future situations.

Following the presentation, individually, each person will be expected to provide a written articulation of what they contributed to the proposal, what you personally learned about team decision making, provide a specific example for how this learning can be applied in another real-life situation, and how this learning can assist to help your team decision making in the future be more effective/efficient.
The assignment is worth 200 pts. Please refer to the grading rubric for how students will be evaluated on the assignment. All names need to be noted on the paper. Only one person from each group is to submit the presentation for a final grade. Please refer to the moodle assignment for more details concerning deliverables related to the proposal report.
