NURS 550 - Leadership and Organizational Behavior


Examines organizational behavior and the impact of leadership on the individuals, groups and organizational structure in health care. Organizational behavior is the study of the dynamics of individuals and groups within an organizational structure grounded in values and beliefs. This course will examine this concept at the individual and group or micro-level and at the organizational or macro-level through a meso-perspective which integrates concepts of organizational behavior and organizational theory. Five meso elements are identified: 1) drivers of change, 2) alignment, 3) processes, 4) leadership, and 5) people as critical to the successful transformation of healthcare organizations.
