  Organizational Misbehavior

An understanding of employee behavior is essential if managers are to successfully carry out their responsibilities.

In recent years we have come to understand that it does not suffice us, as managers, to emphasize the positive, desirable behaviors facilitating the performance of individuals, teams and systems in furthering organizational objectives. An understanding of employee misbehavior is also called for if we are to depict organizational life in a realistic fashion. That is, we need to focus not only on the positive but also on the study of problem behaviors that are prevalent in organizational life. This workshop will explore some of the available theory and research concerning workplace misbehavior (OMB), we will identify the antecedents of OMB, the different manifestations of OMB, and try to determine their causes and costs. We will also attempt to determine ways in which expressions of OMB may be managed and their costs reduced.

Course Objectives
