This course explores how to lead and get things done in organizations, using an organizational behavior perspective that helps understand issues involved in both managing and being managed at work. We all develop our own understanding of what organizations are and how to act effectively as organizational members. But our understanding is often limited by our current position, functional area, or individual interactions and experiences with other organizational members. A narrow view can lead to costly misunderstandings and damaging managerial decisions. In this course, we seek to enhance participants’ understanding by studying the human aspects of organizations. More specifically, we look at organizations through the lenses of leadership, power, structure, culture, and change. Each lens provides explanations of why some organizations flourish whereas others collapse, and why people within organizations behave the way they do. I will discuss the managerial implications of each lens and provide you with the skills and tools to thoroughly diagnose organizational problems and to tackle them with the appropriate ethical actions.
