ORG LP810 - Team and Group Development for Leaders

(Credits: 3)

Teams and groups are at the center of organizational life. Their capacity to function at a high level can make or break an organization. This course explores the underlying theories of group dynamics and team development including group formation, group development, performance, conflict, life cycle and other key elements. Leaders and organizational development practitioners need to be able to assess, diagnose, and intervene at the team level. Students will learn how to do all three. Throughout, the course will relate theories to organizational cases, employee behavior, and leadership practices.
