The Psychology of High Performance: Belonging at Work
Social belonging is a fundamental human need. When employees feel a strong sense of belonging to their workplace, their commitment, engagement, productivity, and job satisfaction improve substantially. This course teaches students the key psychological theories and concepts that underpin belonging and extraordinary performance. Students will also learn key strategies, practices, and skills to improve belonging in the workplace and organizational outcomes. This course uses seminars, research, group work, reflection assignments, and a final paper and presentation to help students bridge theory and practice and gain skills, knowledge, and competencies to improve belonging in the workplace.
This class will have a significant online component, with some class meetings conducted via Zoom and learning activities conducted through Canvas. The faculty will offer alternative assignments if conditions or illness prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings, which will allow students to earn comparable credit.
