There’s a saying: "people's behavior is largely determined by forces not of their own making", which basically states that actions and decisions of humans is more or less based by other’s rather than themselves. Although, “forces” can affect people to make certain decisions they don’t have too. All humans have a mind and the ability to think and act how they want. While some don’t understand this, others don’t hesitate to take advantage it. Ideally some are afraid to do what others don’t want them to do because they will be hurt, or simply looked down on by their society. Personally, I disagree with the saying as some are brave and do what they want, usually too bring necessary change to their nation, other times to cause havoc to others. There exists countless examples in both history and the everyday where people choose to do what they want, regardless of what they are told or expected to do.
Martin Luther King is an ideal example to help disapprove the saying. MLK was the leader of the African-American Civil Rights movement. A minister, King became a civil rights activist early in his career. King, along with all other African-Americans was being oppressed by the American citizens. Even with these forces on him, MLK decided it was time for change, the time for everyone to have equal rights, no matter the color of one’s skin. Forces, in this case the Americans, wanted their slaves to obey them without asking questions. Furthermore, the whites felt they have hierarchy above others and thus demanding obedience and respect at all times. MLK rightfully believed what the whites were doing was wrong and even though it was looked down upon my society he commercialized the wrong doings of the whites. King did what he thought was right, help colored men and women earn fair rights, all through non-violent acts. King used the power of words to bring justice and freedom to the United States. Martin Luther King is a positive example of how ones behavior doesn’t have to...
I believe that the relationship between the study of Organizational Behavior and the effective management of people in organizations is absolutely direct. It is impossible to manage people in organization effectively without knowledge about OB, organizational structure, communicational skills, empoyees’ satisfaction, motivation, change process, etc. It is impossible to solve any problem or conflict in the organization without understanding of the rules of Organizational Behavior. Whenever people interact in organizations, many factors come into play. Modern organizational studies attempt to understand and model these factors. Like all modernist social sciences, organizational studies seek to control, predict, and explain.
Management - is the act of "managing" a group of people, as in getting people together to accomplish the businesses' goals and/or objectives; this includes, planning, organizing, leading and directing a team of people, resources, etc
So in managing people, you want to be as effective and efficient as possible in order to reach your desired goal/objective. To be efficient and effective in doing so, you have to work with your team. Understanding them and considering how they think, feel and how it affects their actions is a significant part of the effective management. OB...
...worker will not be able to reach to fit the piece in place ... "Maintenance also complained that access for the necessary maintenance had not been taken into account. Quality also complained that the equipment installed was fixed and did not allow adjustments and produced flaws.
In an era of fierce competition in the sector, there was great sensitivity to cost reduction. This led the Management of CARS to decide to do away with the role-based limits for the launch of a new vehicle and instead create a project team in which everyone would participate in all the roles involved in the design and operation of the lines in order to manufacture the new vehicle. This was done in order that, right from the design process the views of all the people involved were taken into account so as to eliminate the problems that used to arise with new lines.
At first the idea did not appeal to any of those involved. There was strong resistance from Process Engineering and because they thought that it would represent interference of others (laymen with little knowledge of design) in their tasks. Whilst the other participants thought that it was a trap so they could not complain about any problems that arose from the new lines.
Despite this, following orders, the team was formed and developed. The team members began to become aware of the target they had been set of "developing a manufacturing line that will work correctly straight away." Team meetings at first were almost...

Adults that support children and young people in school setting have to be aware of the different stages that children and young develop: this includes emotional, physical and social development.

...does it cause but for me its No To Drugs. Drug abuse at the workplace is a serious issue in our society and will become even more serious in the future. In phillipines drug and alcohol abuse is already a grave workplace problem. Employees usually don’t leave their drug and alcohol abuse problems at the door when they enter the workplace. Companies have to face problems like the increase of accidents, medical claims, the workers tardiness and absentees, selling drugs to co-workers or stealing from employers. Drug testing at work can be one way to implement a more efficient work environment and control or monitor such difficulties.They also had random drug testing were they would pick a certain percentage of the employees and randomly choose people to take the test. In conclusion these drug tests make the workplace more productive, safer, and overall better for the environment. i also learned lot of things from the topic citizenship on the phillipines. The documentaries that we have watched show that the Philippines are encountering many problems in state of education especially on rural areas. The government seems to forget those places because they are the one who are experiencing many problems especially in lack of teachers and school supplies. Also, the buildings of the school needs more repair or should I say it needs to be change and have a new and a better building. The students in those schools are also suffering regarding to the distance of the schools...

3. How to maximize performance? Set rules to encourage members to speak out,...
...For decades, psychologists have devised many treatment regimes for schizophrenia patients, with varying degrees of success and effectiveness. There have been great obstacles in their efforts, mainly due to the fact that patients of schizophrenia lack insight into their impaired conditions. Often patients refuse treatment of any kind because they do not perceive any mental illness associated with their behaviour. In particular, individuals suffering from paranoid schizophrenia regard therapy as intrusions from hostile outside forces, which reduces compliance on the part of the patient (Davison & Neale,1998). Other problems with treatment programs for schizophrenic’s is that they suffer from both positive and negative symptoms, each requiring different type of treatments. In order to combat the difficulty of treating schizophrenia, several techniques have been devised; psychoanalytic therapy, behavioural therapy, family therapy and most predominantly, drug therapies. Drug therapy is the primary form of treatment implemented at the onset of schizophrenia. The drug clozapine is very effective for many patients who do not respond to initial drug treatment programs and treats both the positive and negative symptoms of schizophrenia (Advokat et al., 1999; Robinson et al., 1999). Moreover, a reduction in negative symptoms has also been noted to occur as individuals are treated with amisulpride and (Danion et al., 1999). The use of newer drugs to treat...
What is Organizational Behavior (OB)? Why is organizational behavior used? What does it change? Managers who deal with people on a daily basis use organizational behavior as a way to identify problems in the workplace, figure out how to solve whatever problems arise, and then decide if the solutions they want to put into practice will even make a difference. By the time you are done reading this, not only will you be ten minutes into the future, you will have gained a whole new appreciation for what managers (and other people in an authoritative position) have to do in their normal work day!
What exactly is Organization Behavior?
Organizational Behavior (or OB) is defined as a field study of the actions of people or the attitudes of different having to work together in an organization. Managers and other people in authoritative positions use organizational behavior as a way to help people better understand situations they face in the workplace and change their behavior so that their individual performance improves and the organization’s overall effectiveness increases.
Internal and External Perspectives
