Learning Outcomes

After completing this course, we hope that students will be able to - describe basic organizational behavior and leadership theories and concepts and - apply them to understand human behavior in different kinds of organizations (work, home, etc.). We study these fields because they help us function more effectively in organizations. They teach us the skills to be an effective employee, team member, manager, or leader. In addition, the exercises and assignments are designed to facilitate self-learning and teamwork. Students should leave this course with a clearer understanding of the effect their behavior has on others. Students work in the same learning groups throughout the course. In these groups, members should - share their experiences and - provide support, advice, and feedback to each other.
