This course aims to provide students with an understanding of the factors that impact upon the behaviour of the individual in the workplace and how these factors can be used to structure a work environment and work experience that enhances both organisational and individual outcomes. It includes a consideration of values and attitudes, perception, motivation, and personality. It also analyses interpersonal influences that impact upon group behaviour in work settings. Topics covered in the course include communication and managing conflict, stress, individuals in groups and teamwork, decision-making, leadership, and issues in power and politics.
