This free online course on Attitude, Emotions and Motivation will explain how attitudes are formed, how emotions are managed and how our needs drive our behaviour. Most adults spend at least thirty percent 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.

First, you will learn about Attitudes. An attitude can either have a positive or negative effect in the workplace. This course will teach you what factors contribute to the development of attitudes, and what those in management positions can do to change negative attitudes and promote positive ones.

You will analyze Motivational Theories, understand what motivates employees and how to motivate them to meet their full potential.
