Organizational Coaching taught by Professor Schaffner.  This class not only helps you discover your own style of leadership and how it affects and is perceived by others, but also teaches you how to work with a team to bring out the best in each individual and help them achieve their personal goals.  This class taught me so much about myself and I am excited to take these skills with me Post-MBA.
