PSYC 9680 GROUPS AND TEAMS (3 credits)
Teamwork is hard but inevitable; individuals must be able to work effectively in a team. Teamwork is only becoming more difficult and complex as organizations use technology to communicate across space and time, bringing together culturally and functionally diverse, physically distributed team members who are members of multiple teams or systems of teams. This course explores what it means to be a good team member, to help others work effectively in teams, and to diagnose and solve teamwork problems. Challenges such as communication, decision-making, conflict resolution, and leadership are explored.
Prerequisite(s): Admission to industrial organizational psychology graduate program and PSYC 9660. Not open to non-degree graduate students.
