MAN150 Change through Challenge
this course fits the core requirement for the Leadership Certificate
Perhaps you heard about “Change through Challenge” on the radio or newspaper….This is not your traditional business school course! 

The premise of “Change through Challenge” is simple: the key life disciplines (e.g. goal-setting, consistency, overcoming setbacks) that are essential for success in school, business and life can be developed through the transformative power of marathon training. Period.  The problem with many student success programs is they seldom require the student to APPLY the disciplines they learn in the text / classroom. Training for a marathon requires mastery and APPLICATION of key life disciplines in order to complete the race.

The “Change Through Challenge” course will begin Fall 2014 and will be 21-weeks in duration. The final exam: The January 19th 2014 Rock n Roll Marathon in Phoenix Arizona—walk, run or both—the goal is simply to FINISH.
