Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 7 key sections of this training course.

1. Start with a solid introduction to organizational issues

The goal of an organizational issues training course is to provide your audience a clearer understanding of all the different challenges that a company can face.

It allows you to share many areas, which, in turn, will improve the skills of your audience.

Sounds interesting?

Well, we’ve learned that successful workplaces that tackle these critical organizational challenges will focus on:

  • Organizational dynamics.
  • Organizational structure.
  • Group processes.
  • Communication.
  • Organizational change.
  • Organizational culture.
  • Strategy.

You can use the content provided to help your audience cope with these potential issues.

2. An organizational structure shapes success

Before you talk about how organizational structure can impact an organization, you need to make one thing clear: some people can get a little nervous when talking about organizational structure.

This is normal. And, understandable.

As a result, you need to get into the mindset of an audience. And, remind them that any discussion will be straightforward.

Use the content to:

  • Share the numerous approaches to organizational structure.
  • Highlight key concepts and dimensions of organizational structure.
  • Discuss critical concepts like the structuring of activities and the line control of the workforce.

This information will make your audience feel more connected to the course. And, they’ll generate more practical skills.

3. Connect with group dynamics skills

We all know that groups within companies can change regularly.

When delivering this material, start with group dynamics skills development.

For best results, use the content to explore the different types of groups that can exist. And, the relationship between groups and performance factors. To illustrate:

  • Norms.
  • Size.
  • Composition.
  • Investigation.
  • Socialization.
  • Maintenance.
  • Resocialization.
  • Remembrance.

It’s critical that you place yourself in the shoes of your audience.

What are they thinking?

What are they struggling with?

As a result, you need to ensure that they understand what they will get from this section of your course.

This shows people they’re in the right place.

And ideally, that they also will learn a lot of practical skills from you.

Next, you can use the content to focus on:

  • The phases Of socialization.
  • The factors and consequences of group cohesiveness.
  • Different types of communication that can exist across groups.

You may want to add industry-specific examples to the content to improve learning.

4. Boost your audience’s understanding of change management skills

Change management isn’t just something management does.

Sure, there are many types of change that your audience will have experienced directly.

But your audience will learn about aspects of change management that will turn knowledge into skills.

To illustrate, you will be able to use the content to:

  • Share an understanding of what is change.
  • Help your audience diagnose the need for change.
  • Highlight unfreezing, changing, and refreezing tactics.
  • Discuss driving and restraining forces for rebalancing the “change equilibrium”.

5. How to nurture a positive organizational culture

When it comes to creating a positive organizational culture, there are many things you can discuss. To illustrate, you can use these course materials to:

  • Highlight the characteristics of organizational culture.
  • Offer your audience an introduction to the various types of cultures that can exist within companies.

Next, focus on eight images that are often used to describe the culture that exists within companies.

  1. Machine.
  2. Organism.
  3. Political systems.
  4. Brains.
  5. Psychic prisons.
  6. Self-producing systems.
  7. Social structure.
  8. Domination systems.

6. Teach your audience about strategic management skills

Your job while presenting these course materials doesn’t stop after these initial sections. Next, use the training materials to examine strategic management skills.

Use the content provided to share what strategy is and why we need it.

The content also explores how strategic management initiatives can also cause organizational issues.

Aim to create an atmosphere that builds trust with your audience. And, show them how you’re offering solutions to their needs.

7. Focus on what is a strategy

When you ask employees “what is most important to them at work?” – we suspect very few will say strategic management skills.

Yet, when they discover that more about organizational strategy, their position will often change. To illustrate, a strategy will set a direction for a company. It will define the company. A strategic plan will also focus effort and provide consistency.

This will be like a lightbulb moment for most audiences.
