Description: In this course, Professor Raes will provide an in-depth look at the four areas of organizational behavior: motivation, leadership, teamwork and culture. In particular, students will learn how to turn to themselves into an effective leader; motivate those above, below, and alongside them in the organizational chart; leverage the diverse skills and experiences of team members to foster cohesiveness; and identify the cultural values that shape an organization — and the impact they have on how decisions are made.
