Course Overview


Insufficient sensitivity to and skill in coping with power dynamics have cost Stanford GSB graduates (both MBA and MSx/Sloan) and many other talented people promotion opportunities and even their jobs.  My objective for this class is simple:  make sure this does NOT happen to you.

The course seeks to ensure that you will learn the social science concepts useful for understanding power and ways of analyzing power dynamics in organizations.  The course and its projects and self-reflective assignments encourage you to think about and develop your own personal path to power.
