Organisational Behaviour focuses on what people do in an organisation and how their behaviour affects organisational performance. An organisation may be designed to fit its institutional environment, but organisational performance may still suffer because of low employee morale, high stress levels, and conflicts at the workplace. Issues discussed in the course cover a wide range of important topics from motivation, emotions, personality, and job satisfaction to work teams, power, conflict, and communication.
