What is Organizational Behavior (OB)?
OB is a field of study devoted to understanding, explaining and ultimately improving the attitudes and behaviors of individuals and groups in organizations.
The goal of this course is to enable you with enough OB knowledge so you may someday improve an organization's effectiveness.
Resource-based view argument for why OB matters
How do we "know" it?
* Method of Experience
* Method of Intuition
* Method of Authority
* Method of Science
Is OB a soft-skill or scientifically grounded?
Two primary outcomes:
* Job performance
* Organizational commitment
See you next week!
AC-CE score is 14
AE-RO score is 19
Which one are you?
Good people are RARE and INIMITABLE
Half of all organizations don't believe in OB
Of that half, only HALF will make comprehensive changes
Of that half, only half of THOSE will stick with it
At the very best, only about 12% of all organizations will actually do what is required to build profits by putting people first!
It is both!
Learning Style Inventory
Rank: Across each ROW (not column) rank the set of four words.
You will give a high rank to words that best describe the way you LEARN
Assign a "4" to the word that
describes your learning style, then 3 for the next most descriptive, etc. (note: 4 is best ranking, not 1)
Scoring: Add up total score for CE, RO, AC & AE (total ONLY the numbered rows listed)
Calculate your AC-CE and AE-RO scores
Plot your scores: AC-CE on vertical axis and AE-RO scores on the horizontal axis.
Dominant strengths of each learning style.
