Current perspectives on what makes an organization successful, regardless of industry, point toward the significant benefits gained by putting people first. Recent studies suggest, however, that even the most experienced managers and leaders do not fully utilize the frameworks and tools that are available to them.
This course will expose students to a set of frameworks and processes that can help in effectively leading and managing others in organizations. It will provide students the opportunity to appreciate what it takes to make a difference in their organization, in particular, amid times of rapid change. The emphasis in this component will be on creating effective leaders and organizations though better understanding of leadership, power and influence, managing conflict, working in teams, motivating others, and navigating organizational culture and change. The sessions are designed to draw on students’ rich base of organizational experience.
