Course Descriptions

TitleHuman Relations for Leaders

The overall purpose of this course is twofold: 1) to acquaint students with the dynamics of organizational change and the challenges they present for those who hold positions of formal authority and 2) to help students develop the personal skills and discipline necessary to exercise leadership effectively. The course draws on leadership studies, complexity and systems theory as well as insights from the social sciences to develop a theoretical and practical framework for diagnosing and intervening in groups and organizations. The design provides a kind of “laboratory” setting that duplicates to some extent the dynamics that occur regularly in organizations so that participants can test and integrate their learning with actual experiences from the groups and organizations to which they belong.
