The Top 10 Organisational Behaviour Speakers to Book for 2022
Defined as the study of human behaviour in organisational settings, organisational behaviour is often used to make businesses operate more effectively. Described as the foundation of human resources, organisational behaviour encompasses the improvement of job performance and satisfaction through a better understanding of human behaviour.
The London Business School has a department dedicated to the study of organisational behaviour, and they believe that organisational behaviour encompasses leadership, decision making, motivation, personal identity, group dynamics, teamwork, negotiation, creativity and organisational culture. In a world where up to 70% of people do not feel they can be their best at work and they have to shut off the best part of themselves to get through, it is vitally important that business leaders are knowledgeable on organisational behaviour and how they can improve the workplace to help people be the best version of themselves.
A great way to understand organisational behaviour is by booking one of our industry-leading specialist speakers, who will help your team understand the vital topic on the subject.
