The unique collection of exercises, self-analysis techniques, and role plays helps students not only learn the specifics of the subject, but learn about their own strengths and weaknesses - they become more skilled at analyzing behavior in organizations, learn what actions are appropriate for different situations, and acquire a repertoire of behaviors and skills so they can be effective organizational members."@en ;
