  • MGMT301 - Tmwrk & Intrper Influenc

    Organizations emerge because individuals cannot (or do not want to) accomplish their goals alone. Therefore, an organization is most often defined as a collective oriented toward a common goal. Collaboration --in relationships and in teams -- is the building block of organizational effectiveness. That is, much of your work each day will occur in a social context, and will require you to wield influence (and be influenced). Moreover, over 80% of Fortune 1,000 companies now use teams. The ability to work effectively in teams is thus a critical skill. In this course we will use the latest evidence from the science of organizations to understand an array of tactics that can help you work with others (and manage them) as you strive to attain shared goals, especially in the context of teams. You will develop a portable toolkit of ideas related to managing team decision making, team conflict, team diversity, interpersonal influence and emotional intelligence. This is a cross-listed course. Students may enroll in either MGMT 301 or WH 301.
