This course will focus on three topics: (1) What constitutes genuine Help and its various expressions; (2) servant leadership as a style appropriate for social service organizations; and (3) personal history that shapes motivation for a vocation in these fields. Texts include Help: The Original Human Dilemma by Garrett Keiser; Servant Leadership by Robert Greenleaf; and Your Mythic Journey: Finding Meaning in Your Life Through Writing and Storytelling by Sam Keen. Expected outcomes of the course: Increased understanding of the "dilemma" of being a helper; heightened understanding of servant leadership; greater clarity about one's personal motivations for this work; and increased awareness of how to access one's emotional and social intelligence alongside one's analytical skills.
