This course assumes that there is no single right way to manage organizations and that different approaches work for different people and contexts. Based on this assumption, the course will provide not only the most up-to-date, scientific research for effective management, but also individualized empirical feedback that allows students to connect research concepts with their own skill sets and attributes. The course will include such topics as conflict management, risk analysis, managing emotion, and improving persuasiveness. This unique course will utilize the Harvard Decision Science Laboratory in providing customized feedback for each student.

Not offered in 2013-14.
