Required Courses

LDR 2480 Leadership Group Dynamics

Credits : 3

This course explores the group dynamics of good leadership. It requires the effective leader to be cognizant of how their group interacts and functions both individually and collectively. A good leader recognizes that many team problems are not the results of individual faults, but instead, unfilled necessary functions within their team framework. Being able to recognize and maintain these necessary functions is not hereditary, but a learned skill developed through formal training and education.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Explain how good listening and communications skills are paramount to good leadership.
  • Summarize the elements of a good communications model.
  • Explain what is meant by motivation, satisfaction, and team performance.
  • Describe the Ginnett's Team Leadership Model.
  • Explain the difference between coaching and mentoring.
  • Explain the psychological components and practices of empowerment.
  • Explain how to empower members of your team to accomplish tasks.
  • Differentiate between transformational and charismatic leaders.
  • Describe how to set and maintain goals through effective leadership.
