  5. Organizational Behavior is the study of individual and group dynamics within an organizational setting. This first module explored issues of diversity, perceptions and attitudes, and communication, all within a theoretical perspective. Some of the major challenges facing today’s and tomorrow’s healthcare organizations and healthcare managers were discusses. The impact of the Hawthorne Studies and McGregor’s Theory X and Theory Y helped to give relevance to the study of organizational behavior. Lessons from this module reminded us that healthcare organizations need to be flexible to change to meet diversity challenges. The greatest barrier to the industry’s success may be its inability to understand and appreciate the increasing diversity within our population, whether relating to patients r employees. Social psychology concepts were also introduced, with an effort to enhance understanding about attitudes, and how these factors can influence and bias our perceptions. Lastly, the importance of communication was emphasized. Communication in the workplace is critical to establishing and maintaining quality working relationships in organizations. Intraorganizational communication, cross-cultural communication, and communication with external stakeholders rounded out the module.
