Course description

Leadership and Organizational Behavior

Leadership is everywhere. It is involved in nearly every social action, in some form. Many people who have the potential to be leaders do not realize it. Many who become leaders do not know how to manage those responsibilities.

Great leaders can inspire change; bad leaders can cripple their followers with stress and frustration. What differentiates these two is a clear vision, an effective plan, and knowledge of how people work.

In this class, you will learn the foundations of psychology at work, so that you can better understand others and guide them to shared goals. Along the way, you will answer these questions:

  • Why do you want to be a leader?
  • What kind of leader can you be?
  • How can you persuade and influence people?
  • How can you motivate and inspire people?
  • Whether you are a formal or informal leader.
