This course offers skill-building in areas such as: analyzing power dynamics in groups and organizations; communicating effectively; building strategic partnerships; thinking critically; identifying ethical dilemmas; and balancing planning, action and evaluation. Additional topics covered will include the art of constructive dialog, leveraging corporate values and culture, and connecting with an organization’s mission. The particular challenges of “managing up” will also be addressed.
