People Management Module

The People Management module provides you with the most up-to-date information about managing and leading people. You will learn principles of people management and how to apply them to your business or team. Specific topics include managing organizations, managing conflict, leading through change, and methods for conflict resolution. Completing this module provides you with tools and techniques you can immediately apply to your workplace.

This module includes four focus areas, each taught by an experienced faculty member or local business leader.

Leadership: In today’s business environment, marked by rapid change and hyper-competition, effective leadership often makes the difference between success and failure. Examine the different roles and characteristics of a leader, as well as the impact of leadership on an organization. You will also assess your own leadership skills and identify ways to develop your personal approach.

Managing People: The essence of an organization is its workforce; employees must effectively work together to produce positive outcomes. Gain knowledge of organizational behavior and the various methods of managing individuals, teams, and organizations to elicit consistent, high levels of performance.

Negotiation & Conflict Resolution: Leaders often spend a significant amount of their time dealing with conflict and its consequences. People deal with conflict in various ways, but the most effective conflict management tool, at least potentially, is to negotiate. Enhance your ability to negotiate deals, settle disputes, and make team-based decisions.

Change and Transformation: Examine change management theory and application. Change in organizations is unavoidable. We can allow it to happen to us, or we can embrace it and harness it. Successful organizations make innovation and evaluation a consistent part of their culture. Because change is a process, it can be managed through effective leadership.
