UNAS 3344 Cross Currents Seminar: Thinking About Successful Teams (Spring: 1 )

Course Description

This seminar studies strategies for working with and building successful teams in contexts like education, athletics, business, health care, government. Students discuss stages of team development and defined roles found on high-functioning teams. Katzenbach and Smith define a team as “a small number of people with complementary skills committed to a common purpose, performance goals, and approach for which they hold themselves mutually accountable.” We utilize team-based theories to reflect on students' team experiences, connect discussions to their coursework, and think creatively about their impact as productive team players in the future.
