This refreshing textbook shows how research into human behaviour can be applied in the workplace. It is focussed on helping students to develop the key skills they will need as future managers and employees. It assumes no prior work experience, and instead asks students to draw on their everyday experiences. They are invited to complete a range of innovative activities designed to deepen their understanding of key topics, such as personality, perception, and motivation.
The book is an ideal length for one-semester taught courses. It is aimed primarily at first and second year undergraduate students on Business and Management degrees, who are taking OB modules for the first time, though could also be used on postgraduate and MBA courses.
