Human behaviour is experienced throughout an individual’s entire lifetime. It includes the way they act based on different factors such as genetics, social norms, faith, and attitude.
Certain personality traits which each individual has can impact on Behaviour. These traits vary from person to person and can produce different actions or behaviour even when different individuals experience the same situation.
Social and organisational norms also impact behaviour. Due to the inherently conformist nature of human society in general, humans are often pressured into following specific rules and displaying certain behaviours within an organisation. This, in many cases, conditions the way people behave in order to conform. This is because certain actions are deemed to be either acceptable or unacceptable, within the culture of that organisation.
These behaviours may or may not serve the organisation. We have, in many organisations, experienced leadership behaviours that are accepted and rewarded, but which do not add value and in some cases are counterproductive.
At Open Minds, we identify the behaviours that make a difference or will make a difference to the individual and the organisation, and then manage a plan to ensure that these behavioural changes are put in place and then practised.
We can implement a development training plan ourselves, work with your existing providers or in house Learning and Development departments. Whatever you choose, we will help you make it happen.
Our main goals within Organisational Behaviour (OB) are to improve job performance, increase job satisfaction, promote innovation, and encourage leadership.
Our focus includes:
Understanding the relationship between an organisation and its employees: Our practice of Organisational Behaviour helps in the better understanding of the relationship between an organisation and its employees, thereby helping in the development of better Human Resource strategies. Strategies that create a better work environment, employee loyalty and increase the overall value of the human capital for the organisation.
Motivating employees: We help managers to understand their employees better and motivate them, applying different motivational tools as per individual requirements, resulting in the better performance of the organisation as a whole.
Improving industrial/ labour relations: A focus of Organisational Behaviour help in understanding the cause of a problem, predict its future course and control its consequences. As a result, managers can maintain better relationships with their employees by nipping any problem in the bud.
Effective utilisation of Human Resource: We help managers to effectively and efficiently manage their employees, inspiring and motivating them to higher efficiency and productivity through a better understanding and analysis of human behaviour.
Predicting human behaviour: This is an essential element of understanding Organisational Behaviour within your organisation. We help leaders become students of human behaviour, enabling them to become better leaders and thereby contributing to organisational effectiveness and profitability.
