An Introduction to Organisational Behaviour: How to Understand Your People
Duration 2 weeks
Weekly study 4 hours
Learn to understand the behaviour of your colleagues, managers and reports
Understanding how a business behaves can help us to understand how a business works - and how it can be made to work better. We call this discipline ‘organisational behaviour’.
On this course, you’ll explore the key approaches, concepts and issues in organisational behaviour - and how they apply to you. You’ll investigate why people act as they do, along with how managers can prevent workplace misbehaviour.
Ultimately, you’ll develop a better comprehension of how everyone in your organisation (including you) behaves and interacts. This will help you and your organisation to work better.
