Leadership and Team Building (3) Team-based learning approach to developing conceptual knowledge, skills sets, and personal competencies needed for leading and managing organizations.
MGMT 433 Leadership and Team Building (3)
To lead effectively and to manage others in contemporary work contexts requires mastery not only of conceptual knowledge, but also of the intra- and inter-personal competencies and skills sets that are vital to successful performance in a work environment. This course emphasizes an experiential-based learning approach that is designed to impart skill sets and competencies in areas such as leadership, teambuilding, negotiating, communicating, valuing diversity, managing conflict, and more. The course thus uses assessment exercises, role playing techniques, group problem solving exercises, and other experiential-based learning techniques in order to provide students with a framework for better understanding their own strengths and weaknesses, to enable them to practice, enhance, and to gain confidence in their competencies in these various areas, as well as to enable students to better appreciate when and how to effectively apply these skills sets and competencies in the workplace.
