The Managing People subject provides an introduction to the field of organisational behaviour. The subject emphasises understanding, predicting, and influencing behaviour in organisations using insights gained from theory, empirical research, and sharing of practical experience. The facet that differentiates this subject from traditional organisational behaviour modules is the focus on self-assessment, self-insight, self-management and leadership. Topics discussed include: Work group dynamics and team decision making;  Individual differences; Understanding how perceptions and attitudes affect behaviour at work; Motivation; Current models of motivation and job design; Conflict management and resolution; Leadership effectiveness; Organisational and national culture effects on individual and organisational behaviour. Methods used throughout the semester include lecture and readings, experiential exercises, self-assessment instruments, written and verbal assignments, video critiques, case discussions, and group discourse.
