Organizational Behavior: Dynamics of a Positive Organizational Culture
An organizational culture isn't a set of rules or standards, but rather an interactive process—a social construct that's constantly changing. It's an invisible, dynamic force that drives a company and its actions. Culture is reflected in artifacts, patterns of acceptable behavior, and shared traditions, values, policies, attitudes, structures, and beliefs within any relatively stable organization. In this course, you'll learn how to foster a positive organizational culture. You'll first learn about the characteristics of a positive workplace culture and the benefits it offers.
