To work effectively and efficiently with and through others, it is important to build and maintain organizational trust. If trust is developed each participant will feel safe to share her and his talents and feel comfortable in posing constructive questions and concerns. How do we ensure that all the participants in a group are conscientious and disciplined about attending to the business at hand? How do we ensure group and individual accountability? Is conflict inevitable, and more important, how can it be constructive? This course is designed to respond to the recognition that we cannot do all that needs to be done ourselves; therefore, we must find ways to work with and through others.
$330/shared room; $415/private room; $230/commuter
