This course is designed for public and non-profit leaders and managers rather than human resource professionals, and provides a broad overview of human resources and talent leadership. Regardless of the role you’ll play in the public/non-profit sector, your ability to lead people will be a critical component of your and your organization’s success.  Topics will include basic human resources functions such as job design and recruitment; equity, diversity and inclusion; leading organizational change; professional development and employee engagement; providing feedback and managing performance. We will also explore current issues within human resources management, and will use current headlines and contemporary issues to inform class discussions.  The course will include practical application through case discussions and reflection on students’ prior management experience. While it will focus on values-based organizations, best practices from public, non-profit and for-profit sectors will be considered and analyzed.
