Course Description & Objectives
Self-limiting beliefs are perceptions or convictions about oneself and the world that tend to limit us or hold us back from reaching our potential. An example would be “I cannot do well in my classes because my quantitative skills are weak or my communication is poor.” This course provides an overview to a variety of self-limiting beliefs related to the education and training we experience. Using various educational and behavioral theories, we will critically examine how individual beliefs can potentially affect behavior and development. The cases and theories discussed are applicable in management fields widely. Students will assume both learner and leadership roles as they collaborate with each other in a manner that promotes learning.

The objective of the course is to critically examine various kinds of self-limiting beliefs in relation to education and training and discuss how such beliefs can be addressed to regulate short-term and long-term behavior at the individual- and organizational-level.

A combination of lectures, small- and large-group activities, and case-based discussions.
