This 30-session course on Individual and Group Behaviour (IGB) aims at helping its participants recognise the importance of, and difficulty in, understanding another person's point of view. In the process of doing so, the need for identifying one's own feelings, perceptions and assumptions that intervene in one's interaction with others will be made evident and attended to.
The course deals with certain ways of thinking that will facilitate one's understanding of individuals, dyads and small groups. The ultimate aim is to enable participants to become better managers of people, without losing their respect for human dignity.
Depending on the degree of one's personal involvement in the course, the sessions will foster the requisite skills, by extending the acquired knowledge to real-life situations.
