The course allows students to reflect about human behavior in organizations and to acquire relevant conceptual frameworks to better describe and understand it. Participants will be asked to assume a critical attitude towards key components of human nature, such as personality, communication, conflict, and culture. After this course, students will be able to: • Identify personal strengths and areas of improvement • Build a “common language” to favor cooperation between people • Understand and manage different communication styles in different cultures • Encourage independent, critical and mature thinking regarding management and people (i.e. human relationships). The course is mainly an interactive one, characterized by lessons which will be interchanged with group workshops/coaching with the PhD candidates. There will be a “prework” activity to be carried out before the beginning of the course. N.B. The course is reserved to a maximum of 20 PhD candidates so registration is required according to the communication from the Doctoral School.
