Learning Objectives

  • Identifying the place of a leader’s own financial well-being in relation to their organization
  • Increasing one’s ability to manage from income rather than expense
  • Increasing one’s ability to manage from the economy of time rather than money alone
  • Improving one’s ability to lead teams in economic decision making
  • Strengthening public communication where money is involved

Module Overview

This module prepares executive leaders to navigate the role of money in organizational life. Typically, executive leaders have extensive background in finance, or none at all. Those with none tend to avoid money responsibility, hoping others carry the day. Those with financial backgrounds often see numbers alone, failing to understand the intersection of human capital and economic behavior. This module helps navigate the bridge between numbers and people. We will focus on the place of money in decision making, the relationship between time and money, and how to communicate well when money is involved. We will also explore how to lead teams in making wise economic decisions, and how a leader’s personal money life impacts how they lead an organization.

Credit for the module will be determined on the following criteria:

  1. Successful completion and submission of five Reflection assignments demonstrating that the participant has read required resources and reviewed the presentation content.
