PB 741 - Team Dynamics—Human Resources Management

Modern complex organizations have become flatter (fewer hierarchical layers) and more dependent upon formal and informal teams to coordinate work across functional areas. As a result, teams have become central to organizational effectiveness and adaptiveness.  The ability to successfully lead and perform on a team has become critical for both the organization and its members. This course covers the nature and practice of effective leadership in a team-based environment while defining the hallmarks of successful teams at both a human interaction and performance effectiveness levels. The course has the goal of enhancing the teamwork skills of each participant as well as providing a firm grasp of the inherent human dynamics necessary for team based work.
