Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided 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. 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 given an excellent introduction into leadership theories.

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 history to be condensed. 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. 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 – 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 that brought these attributes to the attention of the world.

Use the content in this section 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.
