People in Organizations (281B)

This is a course in managerial psychology and what you need to know for dealing with people more effectively.  The course will be organized around chapters in the course text, Mind-Set Management  with recommended course-helpful readings in Beyond Bullsh*t: Straight-Talk at Work  and Get Rid of the Performance Review! You won't find the reading-load heavy, but you will find the re¬quirement to mull what was experienced in the previous class unyielding and intensive.  In other words, preparing for class requires considerable self-reflection.
