Leadership and Organizational Behavior

Provider Tecnológico de Monterrey
Platform edX
Weeks 4
Hours 5-8

This Business & Management course will challenge one to seek out potentials yet untapped, and develop oneself to leadership heights desired. Leadership involves empowering one’s strengths, and ability to adapt one’s behavior in line with the situation. A Bachelor’s Degree Level is the only prerequisite for this intermediate-level course, which is also part of a MicroMasters® Program, Humanities & Soft Skills.

Many people who have the potential to be leaders do not realize it. Many who become leaders do not know how to manage those responsibilities. Great leaders can inspire change while bad leaders can cripple their followers with stress and frustration. A clear vision, an effective plan, and knowledge of how people work, could be all the difference between great and bad leaders.

In this course, the foundations of psychology at work will be taught, so as to better understand others and guide them to shared goals. Some questions participants will come across in the curriculum are: Why do you want to be a leader? What kind of leader can you be? How can you persuade and influence people? How can you motivate and inspire people? Whether you are a formal or informal leader. Answering these questions will be the focus of this course.

By the end of the course, participants will be able to develop a style of leadership that is suited to their strengths and the needs of the situation, design tasks for themselves and others that are motivating and effective. They should also be able to communicate their perspective to others in a credible and persuasive way.

The course is free to audit, but might require a small fee to purchase a certificate of completion. Financial aid is available to those who qualify.
