Effective teamwork is essential in today's organizations, and working effectively with human diversity is at the heart of successful teamwork. Students develop awareness of the dynamics of workplace diversity within a global context. Within this context, they apply models of group dynamics to better understand group experience and practice leadership behaviors to best address group needs. They develop skills in task productivity, collaborative decision-making, managing conflict, self awareness, and giving and receiving feedback. Weekend and Accelerated students should check the course site on Sakai for online assignments that will begin prior to the first class meeting.
