The journal assignment should make it clear to the reader how your thinking has been altered by your engagement with the course content. A high grade for this assignment will be given to assignments that provide thoughtful insights demonstrating the application of the course content in your own thinking, as well as examining ways to integrate that content with your experiences and other coursework.  After watching the videos for each class, reflect on the materials and make notes.  These notes or memos may be useful for stimulating thoughts for this journal assignment.

This assignment consists of a reflection around and answering the following questions: 

  1. What are the connections between course content and your experiences and plans? (e.g., being managed or managing others, extracurriculars, past work experience, job search etc.)

  1. What was surprising or counter to your intuition?
  2. Personal takeaways – Reflections on your experiences, perspectives, competencies, weaknesses, and biases that the course caused you to address/think about.

Course Description:

Considering that an organization’s people are responsible for gaining and sustaining a competitive
advantage, knowing how to mobilize and motivate employees is critical to business strategy
execution. Understanding and practicing organizational behavior (OB) concepts is important for
managerial effectiveness and gives individuals, teams, and organizations the skills and tools they
need to be effective. OB plays a key role in improving and maintaining every aspect of individual
and organisational performance, and it is vital for organisational success. In addition to being the
foundation of personal success in any organisation, OB skills also help managers and employees in
effectively addressing new challenges.
