This module includes four courses each taught by an experienced faculty member or local business leader. Here is a description of each course:
Leadership: In today's business environment, marked by rapid change and hyper-competition, effective leadership often makes the difference between success and failure. Students will examine the different roles and characteristics of a leader, as well as the impact of leadership on an organization. Students will also examine their own leadership skills and identify ways to develop their personal style.
Managing People: The essence of an organization is its workforce-employees must effectively work together to produce positive outcomes. This course provides an overview of Organizational Behavior and the various methods of managing individuals, teams and organizations to elicit consistent, high levels of performance.
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. This course will enhance your ability to negotiate deals, settle disputes and make team based decisions.
Change and Transformation: Change in organizations is unavoidable. We can allow it to happen to us, or we can embrace 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. This course provides insights into change management theory and application.
