Students are encouraged to think strategically about concepts such as perception, emotions, values, motivation, leadership, group dynamics, communication, conflict, power and change in order to develop a better understanding of employee and managerial behaviour. While practical application of the concepts will be emphasized, the content of this course is very often theoretical. This course is concerned with the foundational human behaviour skills needed to be both an effective employee and manager. In addition, the course provides students with an opportunity to work in small teams in order to develop group work skills that are essential to success in corporations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
