Important Note: This course was formerly PYBS 460.
This course is an introduction to the basic concepts and topics in organizational behavior with three main areas of focus: the individual, the interpersonal, and group levels. At the individual level, this course will cover decision-making, motivation, and personality. At the interpersonal level, power, influence, and negotiations will be discussed. Finally, at the group level, the leadership and organizational context will be explored.
Effectively using organizational behavior concepts means being a leader – i.e., being able to diagnose problems, communicate clearly, and make effective decisions that will motivate and influence others to effectively drive organizational change all within a diverse environment. This course will help students gain leadership skills within a structured, supportive classroom environment.
The course service learning project will use organizational behavior concepts studied in this course to help Birrrificio La Gramigna at the interpersonal and group level.
