Graduate Onsite: July 15-19, 2019

MB 642 Systems Thinking – Morning

Hybrid 5-Week Course  | Onsite July 15-19, 2019 9am-12pm | Instructor: Nancy Kristiansen and Garrett VanAtta

This course consists of readings, assignments and dialog that have been designed to ensure students of leadership are not only well versed in the area of knowledge known as “systems thinking,” but are able to apply its associated concepts, language and tools within their organizations. As a result of studying both the theoretical frameworks of systems and applying the concepts to real world situations, students will advance their leadership practice through two primary avenues, learning and leading in systems. Coursework will explore how systems leaders are able to identify causal relationships and fundamental strategies for leading through change that avoid the unintended consequences of guesswork and quick fixes. Students will be challenged to go deeper in their thinking in order to increase the scope and effectiveness of their influence and their ability to lead others in the same practices.

MB 520 Self Leadership – Afternoon

Hybrid 5-Week Course  | Onsite July 15-19, 2019 1pm-4pm | Instructor: Nancy Kristiansen and Scott Wakefield

Synthesizes knowledge from the fields of philosophy, psychology and business toward providing a system of knowledge for leadership. This course explores the interpenetrating and complimentary nature of the relationship between the individual and collective self as a critical dynamic in the realization of leadership. This course challenges students to consciously know and integrate their values and beliefs into their daily actions and to develop strategies to positively and productively influence others. Students must take MB520 through either the 5 week or 10 week course format.

MG 309 Organizational Behavior – Afternoon

Hybrid 5-Week Course  | Onsite July 8-12, 2019 1-4pm | Instructor: Nancy Kristiansen and Irene Dickinson

This course explains the intrapersonal (you) and interpersonal (you and others) components within a third dynamic of organizational behavior. What prompts our reactions, our interests and behaviors in the workplace? What impact can personalities have on job motivation and performance levels? What leadership skills are required to influence performance and productivity in the workplace? You will examine theories of motivation, communication, leadership, power and change with practical relation to contemporary issues. We will also study organizations and reward systems aimed at improved performance and organizational efficiency through employee motivation programs, participative management and cooperative decision-making.
