Description

The Managing People subject provides an introduction to the field of organisational behaviour.

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.
