This is the third one unit class I've taken - they're shorter classes that are focused around a particular topic of interest - the others I've taken were Improvisational Leadership and Active Communicating. I've found these less traditional, softer classes to be very valuable. Hearing from other students experiences, learning in a workshop style setting and applying these concepts to real world situations have made them very effective classes - this kind of learning is difficult to get from reading a book - which is one of the reasons I came to Haas.
My assignment for the next class is to examine my own social responsibility actions, and how this fits in with my life objectives - and look at how I can make this more strategic. Then the final assignment is to analyze the CSR strategy of a company (preferably your own company) and make recommendations to that company.
Here is a link that I particularly liked from the class
