NCCY 5040 - Leading Teams
Summer. 1.5 credits. S/U grades only (no audit).
Course fee: $20. Co-meets with NCC 5040 during the summer term only.
The goal of managers and leaders is to get things done in organizations, and most of that work is accomplished by effectively managing other people. This course applies cutting edge behavioral science findings to develop your managerial and leadership capabilities. Your ability to get things done through others far outweigh any technical skills you might have. And there has been quite a lot of research done on those topics. What has been missing, and what this course will emphasize, is how to translate those research findings into practical tools, changing how you do things next Monday.
The course is designed to provide you with concepts and competencies to help you throughout your managerial careers. The concepts will include both time-tested ideas and very recent findings, putting you at the cutting edge of management thinking. But learning the lessons intellectually is the easy part. You will also have the chance to practice and experiment with these ideas. Through class exercises, videotaped exercises and cases, you will have the opportunity to turn the concepts into competencies.
