What students say about this course:
Daniel Goleman wrote: “Outstanding coaches and mentors get inside the heads of people they are helping. They sense how to give effective feedback. They know when to push for better performance and when to hold back. In the way they motivate their protégés, they demonstrate empathy in action.”
"I pulled this quote from a reading I was assigned in a UW leadership course and I cannot think of a better way to describe Dariush Khaleghi, one of the instructors for that course. DK took time to understand the needs of each individual in our class and drew from his wide range of experience and knowledge to push us beyond the readings and course content to help us think bigger. I personally gained much insight and inspiration from his instruction and see the distinction between leadership and management, as well as their intersection, in a new light."
