Leadership and Organizational Development
Leadership and Organizational Development examines individual and group interaction and helps learners gain a deeper understanding of how human behavior drives organizational behavior and development.
Drawing from neuroscience and cognitive science perspectives, learners transition from manager to leader through the lens of managing self, others, teams, and relationships. Learners examine principles of motivation, communication, leadership, organizational development and change relevant to contemporary issues.
