This course has two major components. The first part is about management of the self through reflection. Specifically in the first part of the course students will learn about double loop learning and the importance of reflecting on one's assumptions as a manager. Students will be given an opportunity to set some personal learning goals and then monitor their progress on these across the semester as a form of double loop learning. The second part of the course is about students uncovering personally relevant learnings about their approach to the management of others in pursuit of organisational outcomes. In managing others as individual employees, students will be asked to consider how their approach as a manager to for example, decision making, may impact on individual employees' experience of job satisfaction. In managing staff as members of groups or teams, students will be asked to consider how their approach as a manager to for example, conflict, may impact the cohesiveness of the work groups they are leading. In managing employees at an organisational level students are asked to consider how for example, the culture of a work place may impact on the profitability and long term survival of the organisation. The final piece of assessment for the course will give students an opportunity to construct a statement of the personally relevant learnings they are taking from this course into their current or future management activities.
