Helen M. Mitchell is faculty and a professor in the Crowell School of Business at Biola University.  She teaches Leadership, Change and Innovation in the MBA program and Organizational Ethics in the undergraduate program.

The students in her Leadership, Change and Innovation class not only learn valuable leadership skills, but they learn who God created them to be and maybe more importantly, who they are not.

Understanding transformational leadership while shaping the heart of the leader.  With an increase in their own self-awareness, they explore the dark side of leadership, how conflict arises from differences in natural styles and between genders.

Armed with tools and a grid for decision making, they are better able to embrace and bring out the best in others.  Much conflict arises simply because of the differences in how God uniquely created each individual.

This class explores the role of leadership and managing organizational change for productivity and creativity through individual and group leadership.  Leadership is understood three dimensionally as they explore and assess their own leadership.

The students learn how to effectively create and manage change for productivity, through individual and group leadership.  The crucial role of leadership in the change process is explored while experiencing change and innovation.

Helen brings classroom learnings about leadership into the real world of business and the local church through programs, customized workshops and training.
