The Leading Effective Teams course is offered as part of Stanford LEAD. The full course is designed to teach you the skills and frameworks for getting the most out of your teams. When you enroll in the certificate program, you will investigate some of the common pitfalls teams experience as well as strategies for avoiding and overcoming these problems in order to achieve team synergy. You also leverage teams you are currently a member of as a laboratory to try some the techniques, and report back to the other participants about the effects you observed.
In this LEAD Preview, you will focus on one module from the full course to explore how to lead more effective teams.
This Preview is exclusively from Stanford LEAD, an immersive online learning model taught by renowned Stanford GSB faculty. The programs, focused on Corporate Innovation and Personal Leadership are designed to be completed in one year and comprise 8 courses, including required foundation courses and electives of your choice. Upon completion of all 8 courses, 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and a Stanford GSB Certificate are awarded.
Enrollment in Stanford LEAD is limited and tuition is $19,000 USD. There is no fee to apply and no GMAT is required.
The Walter Kenneth Kilpatrick Professor of Organizational Behavior
Brian Lowery is a Professor of Organizational Behavior. Professor Lowery is a social psychologist by training. He received his doctorate from UCLA in 2001 with a minor in statistical methods.
Professor Lowery's research has two major threads. The first thread examines the operation of racial attitudes below the threshold of consciousness. The second thread focuses on how people perceive inequality. Underlying both lines of work is the assumption that individuals may unintentionally exacerbate existing inequity, despite supporting the ideal of a just and fair society.
Professor Lowery's teaching focuses on translating basic knowledge about human interactions into lessons for managers. He currently teaches introductory organizational behavior courses for both master's and doctorate level students. In addition, he teaches a seminar on managing diversity.
