What is Organizational Behaviour?
Organizational Behaviour is nothing else than developing our understanding and development of people skills. A multidisciplinary field devoted to understanding individual and group behaviour, interpersonal process and organizational dynamics. Different people works differently in different situations. Organizational behaviour helps to understand and predict the behaviour of people both: management and employees.. Thus Organizational Behaviour is a very important aspect of every organizations, because it helps to understand the issues, improve the communication, effectiveness, productivity, motivation and quality of work. There are many different issues in organizational behaviour, however I am going to talk about three of them which had the most negative impact on my attitude while working for the companies. * Leadership
* Change of company structure
* Leadership is defined as the display of relevant conduct through interpersonal relationships and personal actions of such conduct to the employees through the help of communication and decision making.

If these employees lack the motivation to produce completed products to meet the demand, then the business face a problem leading to unpredicted consequences. The number of scenarios is extreme. Employees are greatest asset and no matter how efficient technology and equipment may be, it is no match for the effectiveness and efficiency of the staff. Motivational Theory: Herzberg’s Two Factor Theory
Motivation has been studied for many years stretching beyond the 19th century. As a result, a number of theorists have compiled their own conclusions and consequently a wide variety of motivational theory has been produced. Using Fredrick Herzberg’s (1966) research to outline the main issues concerning motivation. In 1966, Herzberg interviewed a number of people in different professions at different level. The main conclusion is that employees needs to feel as a part of the business, needs to be developed and be paid as much as they input into the business.
