This course is focused on the sociopolitical factors that enable success, and the practical insights that early career professionals need to navigate workplace politics. This is especially important when your identity can likely marginalize you. Frederick Herzberg asserts that the most powerful motivator isn't money; it's the opportunity to learn, grow in responsibilities, contribute and be recognized.
A Darden Independent Study elective includes either case development or a research project to be conducted by an individual student under the direction of a faculty member. Students should secure the agreement of a resident faculty member to supervise their independent study and assign the final grade that is to be based to a significant degree on written evidence of the individual student's accomplishment.
