About The Event

It is people and their dynamic interaction in the network of positions and inter-related roles that make an organization vibrant to achieve the expected results. Employees are akin to the nervous system of an organization and the synergy they generate is the life blood of an organization. 

 All Managers are expected to understand the dynamics of human behavior underlying individual and teamwork work. Paradoxically, in the pursuit of targets and the technical details governing work processes, human behavior is less understood or perhaps taken for granted—that employees are paid to do their work.  A mechanistic attitude!!! 

What enables an organization to survive and grow in the current dynamic competitive environment depends to the extent that the organization is knowledge driven, is competitive, innovative, and the social systems in the organization optimize synergy at work. 

An employee is first a human being and then a manager, supervisor etc., as of his position/ role in an organization. If employees are knowledgeable, organization is knowledge driven; if employees are competitive, organization is competitive; if employees are creative, they design better processes and systems. It is Employee and Team attitudes that make a change happen or mar a well-intended change. 

Inevitably understanding human behavior is ‘sine-qua-non’ for the success of an organization and to get the best out of employees and work teams. 

The three day’s workshop envisaged, is experiential in nature to appreciate: the psychological factors underlying and influencing work behavior at the individual and team levels; management of organizational change; and analyzing critical incidents governing behavior at work.
