Organizational Behavior

Course ID

Organizational Behavior (OB) is a field of study that attempts to understand how individuals and groups interact in organizations and what implications these patterns have on effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability of organizations. Inspired by diverse disciplines, such as anthropology, psychology, communication theory and organizational management theory, organizational behavior can be useful in choosing appropriate leadership styles and management practices. This course will introduce the theories of organizational behavior and explore the possibilities to apply these theories to real-life contexts to increase positive outcomes for organizations and individuals involved in them. The course will deal with behavioral issues on individual (perception, personality, attitudes, motivation, decision-making, well-being), group (group and team dynamics, communication and conflict management, power and politics, leadership) and systemic (organizational systems, culture and change) levels. The course will make an extensive use of case analysis, as well as individual and group experiential exercises.
