Credits: 3

This course explores the interdependent relationship between authority, leadership and work group progress by examining the impact of group dynamics on leadership and followership. This course introduces applied approaches to assessing challenging organizational dynamics with emphasis on socioanalytic theory and techniques. Students integrate their learning from LP711 into an applied group context through ‘case-in-point’ study, whereby small group experiences becomes the learning case for reflection and application. Through these methods students develop skills to navigate challenging work group dynamics that impede work efficiency, in real time. Further, students deepen their understanding of the exercise of leadership and the influence of power & authority.
