Course Description: 

This course will run on a Tuesday/Thursday schedule from 5:30-9:30pm from May 27 through June 19. 

Short-term or long-term?  Us or them?  Build or buy?  Margin or volume? My way or the highway!  Ad  infinitum, apparent forced choices--or no choice--and limited perspectives can create costly tugs of war or constricted judgment without our minds (and hearts) and in organizational dynamics, persuasive, and often hidden, divergence in thinking offers great opportunity for learning, creativity, and sound decision-making.  This course offers several robust, practical techniques for bringing the value of diverse perspectives in politically productive ways to leadership thinking, communications, and organizational dynamics.


This course fills the following Organizational Dynamics requirements:
