5806 Team and Employee Effectiveness

(3 semester hours credit)

This course covers both the communications challenges specific to teams as well as the feedback process that occurs in coaching or managing relationships. The most productive teams are facilitated by skilled process managers who understand how to build teams and keep them productive for a defined time period. Students learn in real-time how to build a team by working in teams. Employee effectiveness is dependent upon the feedback processes that occur in the workplace. Managers typically engage in a number of key one-on-one interactions with employees to ensure improved performance. These key interactions revolve around the life cycle of employment, including interviewing, onboarding, setting goals, performance reviews, coaching and termination. This course addresses strategies that help managers develop direct reports and improve their ability to successfully engage in critical coaching conversations.
