Organizational behavior is the study of how people interact in the workplace and how this interaction affects the organization. Managers are a key component within an organization and greatly impact internal interactions. They are the people who most directly influence the behavior of employees—whether through motivation, rewards, mentoring, or discipline. Managers need to be good at planning, organizing, leading, and controlling, but they also need good interpersonal skills. How managers get along with their employees can have a big impact on how those employees do their jobs. If management provides a supportive work environment and employees feel valued and respected, they will be more content and more productive.
Look at the world’s top businesses. What do they have in common? While each one may provide an incredible product or service, if you dig a little deeper, you’ll likely find it’s led by an extremely effective communicator. This person knows that a company needs more than just a great idea, product, or service to succeed in a global market. It needs a leader who communicates a clear message to customers about that service, and to fellow executives and employees about how that service should best be delivered. Businesses today value effective, ethical communicators who can represent the company at all times.

Employees within an organization have different skill sets, levels (and types) of intelligence, and personality traits. Managers who want to hire the best people for the job and keep them happy need to keep this in mind. Few people are two-dimensional enough to fit neatly into any one category, but by having an idea of where employees function best, managers can provide them with the right job and the best tools and incentives for getting the job done. When measuring intelligence, remember that different types of intelligence work better for certain jobs. Moreover, intelligence isn’t the only quality that matters. People who do manual labor need to be smart enough to do the job right, but they also need physical strength and high energy levels.
