Organizational Behavior: How to Manage People Certificate

IESE BUSINESS SCHOOL – Organizational Behavior: How to Manage People

About this course

Peter Drucker, a management pioneer, once said that humans have a perverse tendency to behave like humans. Of course, we are not machines, and we are certainly not programmable. But by studying the behavior of an organization, we can understand what drives people in the workplace. A deeper understanding of your own behavior and that of your colleagues, teams, and leaders is an important first step toward positive change in your work and your organization.

Therefore, the purpose of this course is to provide an understanding of four key areas:
• Motivation. In this segment of the course, we will understand the concept of motivation and look at different perspectives to help you understand how we can motivate others.
• Leadership. In this part of the course, we will analyze the concept of leadership and explore different perspectives and approaches that will help shed light on the emergence of leadership and its effectiveness.
• Teamwork. Here we look at the work and the effectiveness of the team. Using the widely used inbound and outbound team performance model, we analyze topics such as team diversity, team processes, and team outcomes.
• Culture. Finally, we will move on to the organization level and consider the concept of organizational culture, and we will also touch on the concept of national culture. We look for different ways of expressing culture and we discuss the meaning of culture for people in organizations and intercultural cooperation.
