Explain group types, group development, group norms, and group decision-making techniques. Analyze and apply leadership theories. Analyze power bases and influence tactics. Identify tactics for handling stress, interpersonal communications, and conflict Describe the characteristics, determinants, & methods of creating and sustaining organizational culture. Explain the impact that different cultural attitudes and values have on organizational behavior. Instructional Methods: Multiple learning methods will be used throughout this course including readings, lectures, exercises, cases, class discussions, and videos. Class sessions will highlight certain points from the reading, provide additional information and in some cases, have an experiential component. Reading assignments provide a basis for both lectures and discussions and must be read PRIOR to each class session. You will learn most from the class sessions if you read and think about the assigned materials beforehand. The readings introduce many more ideas and tools than our limited class time allows. The fact that we do not discuss a particular concept does not mean that the idea is not important. If you are strongly moved or have questions about something in the reading that is not mentioned in class, please bring it up in class or with me at another time. Course Requirements:
