What is organisational behaviour? 

Organisational behaviour is an understanding of how people behave at work

It integrates relevant knowledge drawn from the related disciplines of psychology, sociology and anthropology to make them applicable for studying and analysing organisational behaviour. It studies the impact of individuals, groups, and structures have on human behaviour psychology within organisations, the interface between human behaviour and the organisation and the organisation itself. It looks at the impact of these within an organisation through the lens of the disciplines of strategy, culture, leadership and change, talent management, work and organisational psychology and coaching and mentoring.

 Aswathappa & Reddy (2009), maintain (as we do in Total Focus) that organisational behaviour has three main features:  

 

Combining the above three features, organisation behaviour can be understood to be the study of human behaviour in organisational settings, of the interface between human behaviour and the organisation and of the organisation itself.

individual behaviour includes motivation, personality, values, attitude & perception, and learning.

Group behaviours include leadership, communication, work dynamics and individual morale.

Organisational behaviour includes climate, culture, change, organisational development, and effectiveness portrayed through organisational processes and procedures.
