Course Description: Managing Conflict and Change

Change and conflict are inherent in any organization or community and affect personal and group dynamics and effectiveness. This course will explore the sources of conflict resulting from power and cultural shifts; changes in resources, organizational structure and leadership, and changes in demographics and group composition, and stakeholder expectations. The works and thinking of Kegan and Laskow Lahey, Kotter, Lewin, and the Thomas-Kilman Conflict Mode Instrument and others will guide the examination of various conflict styles and change processes and their impact on interpersonal and group relations, organizational effectiveness and health, client/constituent relations, and employee productivity and morale. Students will explore methods of conflict resolution, fostering collaboration, inclusive decision-making, communication, and mediation through active participation and analysis.  Each week (Thursdays august 13-October 1) we’ll meet beginning at 6 pm on Thursdays on Zoom.

COURSE CONTEXT AND DESCRIPTION

This course provides tools and concepts from the field of economics (mostly microeconomics) that participants can apply to their work in community development.  Topics we will touch on include consumer choice theory, the theory of efficient markets, theories of market failure, behavioral economics, game theory, economic base theory, cost-benefit analysis, and economic inequality.  For each of these topics, we will examine how these concepts can inform community development practitioners as they develop and implement strategies to improve people’s lives and communities.  We will also explore various techniques for working with data and conducting empirical research to support community development strategy development.  The course is not a complete overview of the field of economics or even a complete introductory course in microeconomics or econometrics.  Rather, it seeks to show how “thinking like an economist” can yield insights to support community development practitioners in their work.  No previous coursework in economics is required, and no advanced skills in mathematics are required beyond basic high-school algebra.

Course meets over ZOOM on Wednesdays, 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM, every two weeks starting Wednesday September 9.
