Module 2
Group and Team Dynamics

Having focused in Module 1 on the foundational aspects of change leadership, Module 2 of the Program asks executives to consider how individual behavior in organizations is impacted by the dynamic and often covert processes that occur while working in groups and teams, thereby deepening their understanding of the change process.  Grounded in systems theory and psychodynamic approaches to understanding group life, Module 2 includes core content areas related to group relations, diversity, intercultural communication and intergroup dynamics. Using a three-day experiential conference as a hands-on opportunity to learn about group dynamics, executives leave the second Module with an integrated framework for understanding how the rational change processes and models explored in Module 1 are further illuminated or undermined by anxiety, psychodynamic forces and intercultural challenges. Executives are also asked to consider the application of group dynamics to their own learning community and their experiences in it.
