OB 374: Interpersonal Dynamics

PRE-QUALIFICATION REQUIRED (see link at bottom of course description). UPDATE FOR SUMMER 2021: At this time we do not know whether class or T-group will be virtual or in-person. A final decision will depend on University guidelines regarding in-person guidelines. Depending on format, t-groups will range in size from 8 to 12 students, joined by 2 trained facilitators.. Beyond the format modification the course remains focused on increasing one's competencies in building more effective relationships. Learning is primarily through interactions with other group members and reflection on those interactions. This course is very involving, and, at times, can be quite emotional. However, this course is not a substitute for therapy. If you are in therapy, please talk this over with your therapist and get their advice before enrolling in this course. T-groups meet during part of class-time as well as in the evening. The class has a weekend retreat toward the end of the quarter. (Whether or not t more »

T-groups meet during part of class-time as well as in the evening. The class has a weekend retreat toward the end of the quarter. (Whether or not the retreat is in-person or virtual will depend on COVID conditions and University guidelines at that time.) It is very important to note that when you decide to take this course, you make an explicit contract to be actively involved. ATTENDANCE: Because of the highly interactive nature of this course, it is very important that all students attend all sessions. Missing class, class T-group, evening T-group, or any portion of the weekend for an unexcused absence will negatively influence your grade and may result in your grade being dropped one grade level (for each absence). Attendance at the first class is required and failure to attend the first class will result in an automatic drop. WAITLIST: Waitlisted students must attend the first class to maintain their place on the waitlist. SECTION SPECIFIC INFORMATION: See section schedules for details on class days, T-group evening, and weekend retreat dates; it is your responsibility to make sure you can fulfill all attendance requirements before enrolling. PRE-QUALIFICATION: Students must pre-qualify before taking the class through an assignment on Canvas (due approximately five weeks prior to the quarter). Go to https://canvas.stanford.edu/enroll/H8WJ8X, then select "Enroll in Course".

OB 377: The Paths to Power

Power and influence processes are ubiquitous and important in organizations, so leaders need to be able both to understand power and to act on that knowledge. This course has three objectives: 1) increasing students' ability to diagnose and analyze power and politics in organizational situations; 2) increase students' skills in exercising power effectively; and 3) helping students come to terms with the inherent dilemmas and choices, and their own ambivalence, involved in developing and exercising influence. Topics covered include: the sources of power, including individual attributes and structural position; dealing with resistance and conflict; obtaining allies and supporters; maintaining power; how and why power is lost; living in the limelight--the price of having power; preparing oneself to obtain power; and the use of language and body language in exercising power.The class involves a reasonably large number of written, self-reflective assignments as well as two individual projects (doing a power diagnosis on an external organization that is important to the person) and a doing-power project (using the class material during the quarter to gain power in some group or organization). The class emphasis is on both learning the conceptual material and also incorporating it into one's own strategies and behaviors.
