BMGT45100 Leadership & Organisational Behaviour

Academic Year 2021/2022

This module focuses on the behaviours within organisations and the impact individuals, teams, and structure have on an organisation's effectiveness.

We will review core concepts and theories from the fields of management, organisational behaviour, and work psychology that provide a lens and frameworks for analysing issues relevant to individual, leadership and team behaviours in organisational contexts. We will consider, discuss and critique these concepts, theories and frameworks to fully explore their potential contributions in helping us understand organisational, team and leadership behaviours.

Class sessions will be comprised of interactive discussions, group activities, and case studies in order to highlight key applications of team research and to practice team skills.
