About the Course

Leading individuals, groups and organizations effectively is the key to managerial excellence. Leaders need to assemble the skills, talents and resources of individuals and groups into combinations that best solve organizational problems.

Systematic challenges arise because people are psychologically primed to make bad decisions, to resist influence and persuasion, to oppose change and to experience conflicts when working in groups. Interpersonal interactions are complex, and this only becomes truer as you move up the organizational ladder. The successful execution requires leaders to be able to diagnose problems, make effective decisions, influence, and motivate others, manage diversity, tap into the human and social capital of organizational members, optimize teams, and drive organizational change.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand core topics and principles in organizational behaviour
  • Effectively apply psychological principles to leadership problems
  • Create plans for improving your management and leadership practice
