In the digital age we live in today, communication and collaboration can become extremely challenging, as in many cases teams are spread across the globe. Working effectively in teams is essential to the success of every manager. To do so, managers need their teams to work collaboratively and efficiently.
This course will help managers to understand what motivates people and influences their decisions, how social incentives change behavior, and how to drive team engagement, collaboration, and innovation in the digital age. The course combines cutting edge content from research at MIT, an engaging approach to learning including individual and peer group assignments, and a continual focus on application for you, your team, and your organization.
All group discussions and assignments in the course will be done using a Socio Metric tool: Riff Platform developed by Riff Learning. The Riff Platform is a cloud-based video client & data insights application. It measures conversational dynamics and provides feedback during and after your video interactions. Each participant in the video interaction receives objective data to help them learn about their interpersonal effectiveness and their ability to work with others. Riff’s measurements can predict the engagement, satisfaction and performance on shared tasks.
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
– Look more insightfully at your own behavior and the dynamics of your team
– Help your group deploy these ideas to increase efficiency and effectiveness, whether you sit in the same office or are deployed around the world
– Empower your larger organization to use these frameworks and models to increase idea flow, team engagement, collaboration, and innovation.
