Course outline

Below, we break down how you can present the 3 key sections of this training course.

1. What is organizational behavior?

As you start to present the content, keep in mind that your audience might not immediately resonate with everything.

This is normal. And, should be expected.

Put yourself in their shoes.

People may not be used to sharing their ideas about organizational behavior so this can all feel a little new.

But, that’s new in a good way.

Our favorite way of gaining a deeper understanding of an audience’s needs is to talk to them directly.

Just ask:

What do you think is organizational behavior?

What is your experience with these behaviors?

Are you struggling with anything in particular?

We then recommend that you are guided by the material provided to:

  • Explore what is organizational behavior.
  • Discuss the evolution of management perspectives.

Build in some personal reflections. And, if possible, some industry-specific examples. This form of storytelling will greatly embed learning for your audience. Plus, it will make everything more meaningful.

2. Focus on models of organizational behavior

Improving the skills of your audience ultimately comes down to meeting their needs.

But, let’s get a few things straight – you can use the content to:

  • Explore fundamental organizational theories like scientific management, job simplification, and classical organizational theory.
  • Examine Fayol’s 14 principles and the Hawthorne studies.
  • Discuss human relations theory and McGregor’s Theory X And Y view on management styles.
  • Focus on systems and contingency perspectives on organizational behavior.

The content will also provide your audience with a strong introduction to leadership theories.

3. Teach your audience about The Excellent Organization

The importance of excellence shouldn’t come as a surprise.

But, you’d be amazed at how many people that talk about the excellent organization and have not even heard of the attributes associated with the excellent organization.

The book In Search Of Excellence brought these attributes to the attention of the world.

We suggest that you use the content provided to:

  • Outline the attributes of excellent organizations.
  • Focus on cascading organizational attributes.

Aim to create an atmosphere that builds trust and shows you’re offering solutions to the needs of your audience.

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.
