MGMT 234 Organizational Communication and Behavior

Organizational Behavior (OB) studies how people think and behave inside any organization, (whether in for-profits, nonprofits, or public agencies). This course enables students to identify their own strengths, behaviors and preferences that will impact their ability to contribute as an individual, team-member, and leader through diagnostics, simulations and exercises. Because success in any organization depends on effective communication, this course focuses on building nonverbal, interpersonal, written and oral communication skills. Because organizations must constantly change in order to thrive, the course also focuses on developing students' analytical thinking, research and influence skills as they develop a proposal for enhancing the student experience at Simmons College
