Managing Teams for Innovation and Success
Managing or participating in a team-based work environment can be either exhilarating or exasperating. Given the potential benefits and pitfalls of using teams, when should you use them, how do you choose team members who will accomplish a goal in the most effective manner, and how do you manage them to deliver successful results?
This program enables you to manage team dynamics in a manner that establishes a productive work environment, delivers high performance, and fosters creative ideas.
Managing Teams for Innovation and Success approaches team building at the strategic level. Participants evaluate not only the structure and management of high performance teams but also whether it is appropriate to use teams or individuals to most effectively accomplish a given goal. Participants also explore team dynamics from the perspectives of both team leaders and team members to build a deeper understanding of the implications of management decisions.
This course examines the role that leadership plays in addressing issues of diversity and equity in various organizational settings. Candidates will analyze various theoretical frameworks to determine how demographic variables and historical, social, cultural, economic, legal, and political constructs influence organizational behavior, decisions, and outcomes. Candidates also will examine contemporary issues and various aspects of human diversity and multiple oppressions (race/ethnic, class, ability, and gender), as well as environmental concerns and practices that can positively or negatively impact the recruitment, retention, and success of diverse workforce and learners in various organizational settings.
