OB 372: High-Performance Leadership

This course asks the question: "What does it take to build high-performance?" The focus is on middle and upper-middle management in contemporary organizations that have complex tasks, exist in a rapidly changing environment, and have highly skilled subordinates. The premise of the course is that traditional methods of management may produce adequate levels of performance but prevent excellence from developing. New approaches to leadership will be presented that are more likely to lead to a truly high-performing system. Time will be spent discussing the components of effective leadership, what a manager can do to build a compelling vision, strong teams, and mutual influence sideways and upwards as well as with direct reports. Also, what members can do to support the leader who wants to initiate such changes. In addition to class, students will meet for 2 1/2 hours each week in a Skill Development Group to apply the course material to their own personal development. (While there is minim more »

In addition to class, students will meet for 2 1/2 hours each week in a Skill Development Group to apply the course material to their own personal development. (While there is minimal overlap in content between OB 372 and OB 374 and these two classes are highly complementary, both require Journals and an evening group. We recommend against taking both classes in the same quarter for workload reasons.) Students will have a choice as to when their SDG will meet. The expectation is full attendance at all SDG meetings. Only one excused class absence. Attendance is required in EIS Simulation and the Consulting Project classes.

OB 572: High Performance Leadership for Family Business Leaders

This course examines the unique leadership problems faced in family businesses. What is unique is that there are two over-lapping systems; the family system and the business system. These can be congruent or at cross-purposes. For example, the latter might stress promotion on merit while the other values family ties. There also can be difference in purpose. Is the organization to maximize shareholder value or to provide employment for family members?nnnThese and other related issues impact the communication process, how decisions are made and how power is distributed. The course will be case based. The content will overlap that of OB372 so it is not advised to take both courses. Because of the shortened nature of 572, there would be minimal overlap with OB374 Interpersonal Dynamics.nnnIn addition to class, students will meet for 1 1/2 hours each week in a Skill Development Group to apply the course material to their own personal development.
