This course examines management from the perspective of people. We will learn about theories, research, and practices that will help us to better understand how and why people work. We will discuss people-related topics such as personality, diversity, biases, emotions, motivation, values, culture, and change.
Most of the learning will occur via discussion while we are in the classroom together, by engaging in discussions and group work, and showing both sensitive psychological thinking and creative management thinking.
Please bring a laptop or tablet to class for some of the exercises.
Through a mixture of conceptual input and experiential application, you will develop an understanding of organizational behavior that will help you manage people in your future career.
