Course objectives

UGL provides training and understanding of how a group develops and matures over time and what happens in the group during the course of this development. Within UGL, this is referred to as group dynamics.

The course raises knowledge and awareness around what kind of behaviours or actions promote vs. inhibit constructive development and group efficiency. The course also addresses the difficulties and possibilities of leadership related to the development of the group’s maturity.
