In this course we will examine organizations from the viewpoint of the individual employee, their psychological makeup, how those different personalities work together (or conflict) in teams, and how the way that organizations are set up affect employees and productivity. The unique combination of these elements helps determine an employee’s job satisfaction, an important element in determining employee productivity. We will try to get into the heads/minds of employees to see how they think, how they are programmed, how they are motivated, and predict how they will react to change. We will also examine how the structure and climate of the organization (how the company is organized and led and the atmosphere it creates) impacts, and is impacted by, those individuals and teams. It's a two-way street. I trust you will find this a challenging, interesting, and helpful course in your personal and professional quest for deeper understanding of people and the success of organizations in which they work.
