Leadership in Film
Using the Hartwick Classic Film Leadership Cases developed by the Hartwick College Humanities in Managment Institute, Leadership Studies Program students took new looks at some familiar films.
Rather than watching the movies for entertainment, students observed, indentified, and reported on key leadership, management, and organizational topics portrayed in the films. The case curriculum is designed to help students identify and become able to pin-point and make sense of a complex array of leadership and management concepts.
Power and influence, leadership styles, decision making, communication, conflict, politics, ethics, moral leadership, and teamwork are just a few of the concepts, models, and theories that sprang to life using the film curriculum. Seeing, hearing, and feeling the concepts through the film format adds a richness to the case study method that is impossible to capture using traditional written case studies.
