Students will learn theoretical and psychological assumptions that will guide their coaching practice as they compare and contrast the philosophies, practices, and methods of four major coaching perspectives, or approaches. They will actively practice and refine core coaching skills through both in and out of class coaching including establishing trust in a coaching relationship, listening at a deep level, making powerful observations about the client, giving impactful feedback and asking effective questions to expand client insight and awareness, and designing actions with clients. In addition, students will examine various ethical dilemmas that can arise in coaching practice such as confidentiality and negotiating potential goal conflicts among others. Students will complete required hours of outside coaching practice and receive feedback from a mentor coach and peer coaching circles. They will take on the role of scholar practitioners as they strive to deepen their skills. Prerequisite: HRDO 616 or COAC 619

Students will complete required hours of outside coaching practice and receive feedback from a mentor coach and peer coaching circles. Students simultaneously broaden their understanding of their client and the organizational context in which that client leads by exploring theories related to organizational and systemic factors and situations that add context and considerations in the coaching the whole person (e.g. Team, Gender, Diversity, Leadership, Culture, Change, Internal/External, Career management, Transition management) and incorporating their learning into their interactions with their clients. Students will discuss important ethical considerations in coaching individuals from diverse backgrounds, and challenges within organizations encountered by individuals relating to such dimensions as gender, disability, ethnicity, and cultural background. Prerequisites: HRDO 616 or COAC 619 and COAC 620

To be most successful supporting their internal customers, HR and change leaders need to understand basic concepts of organizations as systems and how all types of organizations operate.

Groups and teams are the central building block and unit of operation used in most organizations today. Complexity, speed, diversity and distributed knowledge are all driving the need to use collective, collaborative methods to solve problems, execute strategies, innovate and change. The understanding of group dynamics is essential to work in these environments and certainly to change them or improve their performance. The study of groups includes theory and practice of: group development, group formation (culture & norms), composition, power dynamics, leadership, communication patterns, group roles, task progress, psycho-social dynamics, decision-making, managing differences and patterns of participation. Process consultation is an approach to understand and improve work in groups and teams. We will examine both the underlying theoretical framework and practical requirements of Process Consultation, attending specifically to two key philosophical frameworks embedded in this consulting model: helping and inquiry. Building on this foundation and incorporating behavioral observation, we will explore those theories-of-practice that enable a practitioner to use process consultation effectively in practice. When groups are organized and chartered as teams, there are some additional models and criteria for effectiveness that affect their performance and outcomes. Most team models have criteria of effectiveness and common categories for team development, including the need for a clear, agreed upon purpose/charter, shared goals, clear roles, productive member relationships, efficient processes and competent talent (composition).Teams are predominantly task-oriented with accountabilities focused on needed organizational results.

Organization development occurs in contexts that are local and global, multicultural, and diverse. OD practitioners and scholars must understand the inclusive, exclusive and cross-cultural experience or working in these varied contexts, and how to address issues and challenges through organization, group, and individual organization development and change initiatives. If addressed systematically and effectively supported, workforce diversity and cross-cultural collaboration can provide significant positive results impacting human and organizational outcomes. In this course, students will have up-to-date knowledge about the new realities of the global and international workforce, understand interdisciplinary theories of cross-cultural differences in workplaces, and develop skills in designing interventions that contribute to inclusive and multicultural workplaces and effective global organization development.

The Global Team Practicum serves similar purposes as the other practica with the addition of being conducted in another country and culture and in a team structure. This course will run for whole cohort. This is an opportunity to continue developing your practice skills, working collaboratively with others in service to the client and project, and learning to be effective and adaptable in a different culture than your own. The Global Team Practicum will be supervised by the two faculty who organize and participate with you. They will serve as your practicum advisors jointly with being the course faculty. A deeper understanding of cultural implications for OD requires critical exploration, both individually and in your teams. During the course you will use transformative learning pedagogy and explore the various aspects of both the work and the lived-experience. Discussions and debriefs will include what’s happening in the project(s), what individuals are experiencing, how OD practices are working and how they need to be adapted, and synthesizing learnings. This course will include critical classroom or online instruction and dialogue leading up to and following the visit as well as numerous periods of reflection and discussion during time at the client sight and within the other country. At the close of this course, students will examine their professional experience through the lens of Transformative Learning Theory, which returns full circle to the way OD professionals reflect upon their assumptions in order to develop a global practice that is increasingly flexible, critically-reflective, and culturally empathic.

In this course, students will explore what it means to work in and lead groups, the core unit of interaction and analysis in all organizations. This will be accomplished through student experiences in and outside the classroom, by developing an understanding of the theoretical concepts used to study group dynamics and teamwork and by applying learning to scenarios, cases and real world experiences. As the workplace becomes more diverse and global, it is even more imperative that we understand how to work effectively in groups and teams.
