Leadership And Managerial Skills

This module combines comparative (East-West) sociological and psychological perspectives on management. The sociological perspective includes coverage of: organization structure and design; organization culture; control and coordination systems; the nature and functioning of small groups in organizations; and organization development and change. The psychological perspective addresses such topics as: comparative views on leadership; roles and functions of the chief executive; the role of power, influence and politics; establishing supportive communications; enhancing employee performance through motivation and empowerment; delegating for responsiveness; managing conflict, change and varied stakeholders. Whereas the sociological perspective will emphasize understanding of the imperatives of managing complex organizations, the psychological perspective will emphasize experiential learning to enhance leadership and managerial skills.
