Overview

Effective Behavior in Organizations is a combination of text and cases with experiential exercises in the Instructor's Manual. This book seeks to provide a bridge between theory and practice by emphasizing learning at both cognitive and experiential levels. It is also unique because it covers group behavior before individual behavior. This sequencing was chosen to parallel the experience of the student within the classroom. The authors have found that early in the course students worry about finding their place within a group. Once secure in their group,students are ready to look at themselves and to explore together aspects of their personal systems.
