BUS5460 Organizational Cultures and Emotionally Intelligent Work Environments

Course Description

Organizational culture is as strategic to success as identified goals and qualified human resources. Grounded in emotional intelligence principles, this course critically discusses how organizational beliefs, values, traditions, and role models shape organizational policies and politics, managerial practices, hiring practices, succession planning efforts, and employee reward systems, as well as how they impact organizational productivity, employee motivation, and job satisfaction. Based upon these discussions, this course presents how to analyze an organization’s present position, assessing its culture’s strengths and limitations and uncovering its culture’s underlying assumptions, viewpoints and ethical principles in order to create an empowering and engaging work environment.
