Fundamentals of Organizational Behavior for the Individual

Globalization, diversity, outsourcing, virtual teams, downsizing, and changing forms of work are just some of the challenges facing companies today. Managers must be prepared to deal with the organizational issues that such challenges give rise to. Whether you're in Human Resources, a manager of a large department, or the leader of your team, you have to be able to constantly improve the organizational dynamics in your workplace. To do this, you need to start with the individual, which means you need to be able to recognize and work with different individual behaviors, attitudes, and perceptions. This course defines organizational behavior and identifies the variables and characteristics that influence an individual's attitudes and perceptions in the workplace, and how these can affect performance. And it shows how you can improve the attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors of employees at an individual level within your organization.

Fundamentals of Organizations – Groups

Groups are a key component in any organization, so knowing how they function best is vital when trying to understand organizational behavior. Working in groups has key advantages for organizations, such as fostering creativity, pooling skills, and improving decision-making and performance. But groups aren't always effective, so it's important to identify what makes groups effective and learn how to deal with obstacles that groups encounter. In addition to explaining the characteristics of successful groups, this course provides guidance on how to address employee resistance to collaboration, priority conflict problems within groups, and various other conflicts within groups.

Understanding Organizational Power and Politics

Because people sometimes have a negative opinion of politics and politicians, you might to think that politics should be kept out of business organizations. However, organizations are sites where power and influence are exercised, so politics can't always be avoided. The real challenge is to leverage organizational politics in a positive way. This course defines politics in relation to power and influence, distinguishes between negative and positive politicking, and gives instruction on how to be a politically constructive leader in your organization. More specifically, it provides guidance on using positive political actions to promote a course of action and get the best from employees.
  • match kinds of power in organizations to examples
  • match examples of negative political behavior to appropriate categories
  • identify examples of characteristic activities of politically constructive leaders in organizations
  • recognize political actions a leader could take to promote a course of action
  • recognize examples of appropriate political actions a leader could take to get the best from employees

Organizational Structure and Employee Behavior

The structure of an organization, including the complexity of the management hierarchy and the nature of the authority and reporting flow, can affect all aspects of employee interaction and overall behavior in the company. The organizational structure is the formal framework for communication and authority, and must be designed in a way that enables a company to achieve its mission, goals, and objectives. In this course, you'll learn how to instill positive employee behavior within your organizational structure. You'll first learn about the elements of an organizational structure that can affect employee behavior and how those elements play out in different types of organizational structures – functional, divisional, and matrix. You'll also learn about the measures you can take to help ensure employees adapt to the organizational culture. And finally, you'll learn how to enrich the jobs of your employees by determining the best method of job redesign for an employee.

Organizational Behavior: Dynamics of a Positive Organizational Culture

An organizational culture isn't a set of rules or standards, but rather an interactive process – a social construct that's constantly changing. It's an invisible, dynamic force that drives a company and its actions. Culture is reflected in artifacts, patterns of acceptable behavior, and shared traditions, values, policies, attitudes, structures, and beliefs within any relatively stable organization. In this course, you'll learn how to foster a positive organizational culture. You'll first learn about the characteristics of a positive workplace culture and the benefits it offers. You'll consider the elements that drive the culture of an organization, such as autonomy and the degree of structure.
