What our customers say

I have been buying Oak materials now for 9 years. They are top products and save you hours of work trying to produce something yourself. Incredibly good value too. More importantly, though is the personal service. Whenever I have emailed them they have been extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have recommended Oak to dozens of people and have been thanked by so many of them for making the recommendation. If you’re a trainer then give Oak a go, you won’t regret it and wonder how you managed without them before.

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how to deliver the key sections of this training course.

What is organizational behavior – So how should you prioritize what to discuss when talking about organizational behavior? Especially when human behavior covers so many aspects of the workplace?

We believe that it is vital to first recognize that a range of disciplines that have dramatically influenced how we view organizational behavior. To illustrate, psychology (role of personality), sociology (the impact of organizational structure), anthropology (influence of culture), and political science (use of power) all have insights to share.

We recommend that you simply follow the material as provided and explore what is organizational behavior. Sharing this content will work best when you also build in some personal reflections and, if possible industry-specific examples. This form of storytelling will greatly embed learning for your audience. And based on that, you can take your time and then discuss the evolution of management perspectives.

Models of organizational behavior – Let’s get one thing straight; your audience, through the course content, will be offered an excellent introduction into leadership theories.

The reality is, your audience will expect and demand that the content will meet their needs. At the same time, you’ll be exploring concepts that some may not have heard of before. This initial unfamiliarity can be a challenge, but one that can be avoided by simply taking your time and following the content provided.

Yes, there is a lot of information to be shared. Still, if you use the content to explore fundamental organizational theories like scientific management, job simplification, and classical organizational theory, then you’ll be fine.

For example, people often incorrectly believe that management theories are just of value to managers. This perception is simply not true. Think about it. All categories of employees can benefit from this knowledge. With all of this in mind, examine Fayol’s 14 principles and the Hawthorne studies. And, discuss human relations theory and McGregor’s Theory X And Y view on management styles.

We encourage you to end this section by using the content to look at the systems and contingency perspectives on organizational behavior.

The Excellent Organization – A lot of companies need to know about this area. And, you’d be amazed at the number of individuals that talk about the excellent organization and that have not even heard of the book In Search Of Excellence. It was this book that brought these attributes to the attention of the world.

We just think it’s a smart piece of research to share with your audience.

There are so many companies acting on social media and on their websites these days acting like they are excellent organizations, that it’s rare that we find ones that even know the characteristics that believed to define excellence. That’s why this section is so special for your course.

We suggest that you use the content provided to outline the attributes of excellent organizations as highlighted so well by Peters and Waterman in their landmark book. These attributes indeed highlight aspects at an organizational level. But, they also cascade to individual behavior, which makes sharing this particular learning of considerable value to your audience.
