This course examines the complex intersection between behavioural interactions and the challenges that operate within both the local and global organisational contexts. By examining the social, political, and economic discourses that govern human behaviour in the workplace, students learn to explore how power operates within these discourses and complex social systems that shape organisational life.
The curriculum combines a focus on variables (e.g., motivation, self-esteem, and personality), as well as the various contextual elements of the individual, the group, the organisational system, and society from an interdisciplinary vantage point. In doing so, students explore how to unpack contexts that influence social relations in the workplace, as well as challenge the prevailing power dynamics. This enables a move towards a greater understanding of transformative practices of leadership.
