This free online course on Learning and Personality will explain how personality is formed, how an individual’s personality type can have either a negative or positive impact in their behaviour and how people learn as they interact with their environment. Work is an inherent part of human behaviour. Most adults spend at least thirty per cent of their lifetime in their workplace and/or in work-related activities. Like in any other context, human behaviour in the organizational and work context is a complex phenomenon. This course will teach you how individuals and groups behave at work and will discuss how to improve their effectiveness and nurture their quality of work-life.
This course will help those who have management responsibilities in any organization to learn about Organizational Behaviour, it’s applications and benefits. First, you will learn about one of its key principles, that of Personality. Personality plays a key role in Organizational Behaviour because of the way people think, feel, and behave, which affects many aspects of the workplace. You will learn about Personality Theories and what factors determine an individual’s personality. You will also learn how to test for personality types and how personality affects such things as motivation, leadership and performance.
By the end of this course, you will understand another important principle in Organizational Behaviour, that of Learning, and how we can use Learning Principles to train, educate, and shape behaviour in the workplace. If the behaviour is learned and not just an inherent part of our genetic makeup, then it can be taught. Most organizations require their managers to take courses on Organizational Behaviour, so why wait?
