Organizational Behaviour
Organizational Behavior explores the influence of groups, individuals and components of
individual actions inside establishments. It is an inter-disciplinary domain that contains
psychology, sociology, management and communication. Organizational behavior considers
organizational concept, which concentrates on inter-organizational and intra-organizational
subjects and improves human-resource researches, which is more targeted on ordinary business
methods.
Organizational behavior (OB) is the research of individual actions in organizational
configurations, the interface among organization and individual behavior, and the organization
itself (Griffen & Moorhead, 2011). Organizational behavior can be separated into three stages:
People in the organization (micro-stage)
Work teams (meso-stage)
The way organizations act (macro-stage)
Overview
Chester Barnard identified that people act in a different way while performing their
organizational responsibilities in comparison to performing independently from the company.
Organizational behavior scientists explore the behavior of people mainly in their organizational
positions. One of the major objectives of organizational researchers in organizational behavior is
to refresh organizational concept and create a better understanding of organizational existence.

Types of Organizational Behaviour
Organizational studies include the exploration of organizations from several viewpoints,
approaches, and levels of research. "Micro" organizational actions represents personal and team
characteristics in organizations. Organizational concept and "Macro" strategic management
explore complete organizations and business sectors, particularly how they acclimate, and the
approaches, components, and unforeseen events that control them. A few researchers also
encompassed the groups of "meso"-scale components, including culture, power, and the
networks of people in organizations, and "field"-level research, which examines how whole
communities of organizations communicate.
Numerous aspects come into consideration whenever individuals communicate in
organizations. Contemporary organizational researches try to comprehend and model these
aspects. The study of organizational behavior pursues to manage, estimate, and clarify the
organizational policies and regulations. Organizational behavior might perform an essential part
in organizational growth, improving general organizational efficiency, in addition to improving
personal and team efficiency, dedication and satisfaction.

Relation to Organizational and Industrial Psychology
Researcher outlined that there is a definite unpredictability in determining a factor where
organizational behavior became recognized as a separate field of study (Miner, 2006) indicating
that it could have appeared in the forties or fifties. He also highlighted the point that the
industrial psychology department of the American Psychological Association (APA) did not
include "organizational" to its title until the year 1970. He also noticed that an identical scenario
occurred in the field of sociology long after organizational behavior had evidently established.
However, there are resemblances and variations among the two professions; there are still many
misunderstandings as to the characteristics of variations among organizational psychology and
organizational behavior.
Introduction of Body Language
Body Language represents several forms of non-verbal interaction, where an individual
may expose signs as to some unmentioned purpose or feel by their bodily actions. These actions
consist of (however are not limited to) human body posture, facial expressions, use of space,
touch, gestures and eye movements. Body language prevails in both human beings and animals,
but this document concentrates on understanding of human body language. It can also be referred
to as kinesics.
Body language should not be jumbled with sign language, since sign languages are
complete languages similar to verbal languages and have their particular composite sentence
structure systems. In addition to being capable of demonstrating the essential properties that are
present in nearly all languages. Body language, in contrast, does not possess a sentence structure
Showing Page:

Organizational Behaviour 5
and should be considered, rather than having a complete implication consistent with a specific
movement. Therefore, it is not a language identical to sign language, and it is only known as a
language because of the prevalent culture.
In a public community, there are various agreed-upon understandings of specific actions.
Understandings may differ from culture to culture or nation to nation. Therefore, there is a
debate on if or not the body language is common. Body language, a part of non-verbal
interaction, enhances spoken interaction in public communities. Indeed, a few scientists
determine that non-verbal interaction is responsible for the most of the information passed on
during social communications. It serves to establish the association among two individuals and
manages connections, but might be uncertain. Therefore, it is critical to perfectly understand
body language in order to stay away from any kind of misconceptions in social communications.
Understanding of Body Language in the Organizational Environment
Kinesics or understanding of body language is considered as an important factor in
effective communication within or outside an organization (Siegman & Feldstein, 2014). Several
non-verbal elements of communication are described as under:
1. Handshake:
While meeting someone, the handshake should be firm, specifically in a highly
professional setup. An iron handshake (very powerful handshake) might specify that an
individual is making an attempt to dominate.

Organizational Behaviour 6
2. Eye Contact:
Always sustain eye contact with the viewers. Though, an individual should make sure
that he/she might not fix his look at some particular individual for more than a few moments.
Excessive fluttering of eyes might specify a low level of confidence. Looking at a specific
individual might be challenging. Therefore, it is not considered as a wise decision.
3. Crossing your Arms:
This might indicate that an individual is not open to new concepts/viewpoint, particularly
in the scenario of giving a demonstration. However, in a one-on-one meeting, if the meeting
panel member has his/her arms crossed, the applicant could do the similar.
4. Facial Expressions:
The human face is a best representation of what an individual seems. In a majority of the
situations, it is not simple to identify if an individual is satisfied, sad, nervous, excited, or
annoyed. It is highly significant that in a professional situation, the individuals should
necessarily control their facial expressions. For instance, if a speaker gets a feeling that the
specific demonstration is not being performed really well, he/she must not express the indication
of losing confidence and try for a higher participation from the members.
5. Gesture:
Gesture represents a kind of non-verbal interaction that uses a part of the human body
with or without spoken interaction. Gestures consist of nods (that are an indication of acceptance
in the majority of the cultures), facial expressions, and head shaking/bobbling.
6. Sitting Posture:
Showing Page:
7/16
Organizational Behaviour 7
Bending on a seat is not a wise decision. The individual should sit straight though in a
comfortable position. Seated back in the seat indicates lack of attention or being rejected.
Non-Verbal Communication
Non-verbal interaction, for example, gestures, facial expressions, posture and overall
tone of voice is a significant constituent of majority of the individual interactions, involving,
obviously, organizational communication. Most individuals use non-verbal signs when
interacting. Even the sightless use non-verbal interactions to help in both delivering and
receiving information since non-verbal methods include these factors as modulation of voice and
physical vicinity. Considering non-verbal interaction methods might help an entrepreneur to get
information across or efficaciously understands information received from some other
individual. In contrast, non-verbal interaction might also deliver indications that intervene with
the efficient demonstration or reception of information. Sometimes non-verbal information
opposes the verbal; often they show true emotions more perfectly as compared to the verbal or
written language. Indeed, research studies have revealed that between 60 to 90 percent of
information's impact might come from non-verbal signs. Thus, it is significant for small
organization proprietors and supervisors to be conscious of the non-verbal information they
deliver and to improve the ability of understanding the non-verbal information in the actions of
others.
Non-verbal interaction includes several ways of expressions. Bodily expressions contain
gestures, postures, touch, eye contact, physical reactions (for example, sweaty brow or sweaty
hands) and the way of movement. Outfit and accessory selections might also be a way of non-
verbal interaction. Since an organization usually includes regular human communication,
Showing Page:
8/16
Organizational Behaviour 8
comprehending the components of non-verbal interaction might be a huge advantage in relation
to operating with co-workers, customers, competitors and prospective customers.
Uses
Familiarity of non-verbal interaction in the organization performs two major roles.
Supervisors use non-verbal interaction to successfully manage other workers and associates.
Associates in the organization (no matter if they understand it or not) use non-verbal hints to
communicate details to entities outside the organization (such as, competitors, customers or co-
workers in a supporting business).
Effects
In an organization, non-verbal interaction might assert or belie the arguments being
made. Interaction might be restricted when non-verbal hints appear to oppose what is truly being
said. When non-verbal and verbal communication details act in the performance, message is
conveyed more successfully.
Examples
Non-verbal interaction in an organization takes place on a regular basis. Participating
individuals be liable to sit side-by-side because competitors will regularly deal with each other.
Folded arms or crossed legs during an organizational conference might represent a lack of
interest or confrontation to the concepts being offered. Eye contact with a presenter during an
organizational conference conveys interest, and an executive in an organization might retain an
eye contact somewhat longer than a subservient worker does.
Showing Page:
9/16
Organizational Behaviour 9
Tangible interaction might help or restrict organizational communications. A strong
handshake might be considered as an over-confidence, whereas other bodily touches, for
example, a persistent touch on an individual's shoulder may be considered as obtrusive of
subjective space.
Methodologies
The individual should practice advantageous non-verbal interaction through operative
eye contact. In addition, the presenter must demonstrate to large clusters of individuals by
changing several methodologies. Check out the viewers, develop an eye contact with distinct
regions of the viewers or make three to four second eye contact with singular viewer associates,
instead of standing at a particular spot during the demonstration, walk around the platform
certainly.
Advantages of Effective Non-Verbal Communication in the Organizations
Organizational executives might achieve numerous benefits simply by understanding the
non-verbal interaction and its prospective advantages. Non-verbal interaction might improve the
scope to interact with co-workers, customers, competitors and prospective customers through
methods outside of precise word selection. Eye contact, oral tone, and posture might convey
simple information that strengthens what is being communicated to express reliability and
consistency.
An additional advantage is that non-verbal interaction might help to exhibit passion
confidence and professionalism by outfit selection, dynamic listening hints and the capability of
conveying some information. Non-verbal interaction might play a distinct role in global
organizational configurations where even with the help of particular language translators, there

Organizational Behaviour 10
might be a usual wariness concerning the precision of objectives; information or propositions
exposed.
Effective non-verbal and verbal interaction abilities are considered as highly beneficial
in organizations. A few of the businesses spend a huge amount of money in order to train their
workers on how to interact successfully. Excellent interaction abilities go beyond discussions,
but the workforce should recognize how to interact well with written documents and e-mails.
Considering the advantages of efficient interaction allows organizations to develop a
concentration on arranging the employees who are capable of interacting within the organization
and with clients, retailers and worldwide organizational partners.
1. Benefits of Diversity
Effective non-verbal interaction is essential in organizations with office diversity.
Excellent interaction abilities help to reduce the limitations constructed owing to language and
social variances. Organizations that offer interaction coaching to international and domestic
workers make use of operative organizational interaction. Business organizations can stay away
from social misunderstandings and miscommunication by coaching worldwide organizations
early in their professions. Efficient interaction leads to increased productivity, decreased errors
and functions to run better.
2. International Business
With international business dealings constantly increasing, the requirement for
operational interaction to fulfill international specifications is also increasing. Supervisors and
workers should necessarily recognize how to successfully interact with the organization's
worldwide alternatives. The dissimilarity among social cultures needs administrators to
Showing Page:
11/16
Organizational Behaviour 11
comprehend the terminologies or gestures used in United States that another nation finds
unpleasant. Business organizations that prepare employees to succeed with verbal and non-verbal
interaction abilities find it simpler to enter into international market segments in comparison to
the organizations that do not prepare their workers. Efficient interaction is highly essential for
organizations looking to develop beyond their national boundaries.
3. Team Structure
Effective interaction in the organization allows workers and executives to form
extremely well-organized teams. Personnel can rely upon one another and on the managerial
staff. Efficient interaction reduces needless competition within divisions and allows workers to
perform together pleasantly. The outcome of the team that performs together is highly efficient,
reliable and responsible. Workers distinguish their positions on the team and identify that they
are respected. Supervisors are capable of correcting staff's errors without making an aggressive
workplace. A supervisor who freely interacts with his employees can promote encouraging
relationships that benefit the organization as a whole.
4. Worker Confidence
An enhancement in worker confidence occurs from operational interaction. However,
salary is an issue for many employees; it is not their individual matter. Workforce appreciates
positive interaction coming from administration. It results in a healthy workplace. When workers
are satisfied with their occupations, they are capable of professionally carrying out their job
responsibilities with a positive approach. Failing to interact successfully in an organization
causes disappointment and misunderstandings among workers. Though, executives can lessen
these issues by keeping the lines of interaction open.

Non-Verbal Communication (Body Language) and Organizational Productivity
Non-verbal interaction consists of the general body language, such as an individual's posture and
appearance as a way of interaction with other persons. Instead of using confrontations,
individuals can convey their messages through non-verbal actions, eye contact, and facial
expressions. In addition, a person's vocal tone might deliver non-verbal information to others. In
the organizations, individuals communicate with one another all over the day through non-verbal
and verbal interaction. Essentially, the manner in which persons convey non-verbal information
might be simply as essential as spoken conversation.
Non-verbal Signs
Examples of non-verbal interaction comprise of what an individual wear, how they use their
outfits, body gestures, facial expressions, voice, eye contact, posture and the space among the
presenter and their viewers. Non-verbal signs impact how audience comprehends what the
presenter is trying to communicate, and their response matches to how the person has presented
his/her concept. If an individual is anticipating a definite reaction by the recipient of their
concept, the non-verbal interaction impacts the reaction.
Communication Improvement
Based on the profession, an individual might be asked to deliver information to others on a
consistent basis; specific professions, for example, instructors, salesmen, reporters, physicians,
corporate executives, and lawyers, spend significant time of their day interacting with others.
Using non-verbal signs might improve how individuals comprehend the interaction. Non-verbal
interaction specifies how an individual is feeling in regards to what they are communicating. In
addition, it also shows how individuals respond to the conveyed concept. Communicating

Organizational Behaviour 13
essential information to the co-workers with enjoyment and passion might have a better
impression on the listeners concerning the significance of the information as compared to
communicating the information with a boring facial expressions and general tone.
Organizational Relationships
Having a sensible attentiveness of non-verbal interaction when a person is also interacting
verbal information enables others to get the information in the exact way the presenter
envisioned to convey some information. Beneficial non-verbal interaction helps co-workers in
the organization to develop constructive organizational relationships while adverse non-verbal
interaction might lead to disputes and various other adverse disruptions in the organization.
Numerous individuals develop encouraging organizational relationships by continually
conveying constructive non-verbal interaction to other individuals.
Impact of Organizational Diversity and Organizational Communication on Organizational
Productivity
In the twenty-first millennium, business organizations are gradually becoming modern
organizations for interactive communication. The research studies have examined recent literary
works on the increasing worldwide effect of workers' diversity and its impact on verbal and non-
verbal interaction. The researchers offered a model for the debate on the possibilities and
difficulties of diversity in the organizations. A systematic structure has also been provided that
guides individuals with applied concepts that might help them in their efforts to successfully
interact in a globally diverse organizational setup. The researchers have observed that efficient
interaction in diverse employees guarantees an advanced level of organizational productivity and

Organizational Behaviour 14
performance for individual and perceptive capital and offers business companies a competitive
advantage in their extended marketplaces and the worldwide economic system.
As the employees become gradually global and more socially diverse, individuals in business
organizations are pushed to interact more efficiently inter-culturally, interpersonally and in
different communities. Researchers mentioned that as an outcome of the highly developed global
organizational setup and worldwide competition, the controlling of individual diversity has
become a complicated routine job for a significant part of organizational communities (Lauring,
2011). In talking about techniques for organizational interaction, researchers highlighted that
efficient social and group interaction is important to accomplishment in current organizations
and business corporations due to the increased trend of inter-cultural organizational relationships
and employee diversity (Bovee & Thill, 2008). Another research study has highlighted the effect
of interaction in a diverse organization and how it impacts efficiency and overall productivity of
a business (Ferraro, 1994). Generally considering, it was explained that organizational diversity
includes all the variations in gender, age, education, social background, religious beliefs, and life
experience. It was mentioned that present employees are not existent in a vacuum or are
separated from the industry, but that it is a portion of a growing worldwide business environment
where efficient organizational interaction is highly important for sustainable business
development. Indeed, it was described that efficient interaction, both verbal and non-verbal,
externally and internally, is important for any business organization desiring to succeed in
today's worldwide competitive business environment and all-inclusive business and competitive
advantage can never be possible without efficient organizational communication.

Organizational Performance and Productivity
Operational interaction is essential to supervisors in organizations since their interaction with
workers, impacts how workers carry out their responsibilities. Leaders might deliver information
to workers concerning several job-relevant issues, for instance, worker policies, job efficiency
goals, work plans and work deadlines. Workers should make improvements to any modifications
conveyed by supervisors regarding the organizational issues. The executive's mind-set, which is
generally conveyed by non-verbal information, might produce either good or bad attitudes by the
workers; this might impact their mind-set and feelings when carrying out their job
responsibilities and either lower or raise worker spirits. In other way, interacting positive non-
verbal sign while speaking with workers might increase worker spirits and organizational
performance and productivity.

The executive's mind-set, which is generally conveyed by non-verbal information, might produce either good or bad attitudes by the workers; this might impact their mind-set and feelings when carrying out their job responsibilities and either lower or raise worker spirits. In other way, interacting positive nonverbal sign while speaking with workers might increase worker spirits and organizational performance and productivity. 16 Organizational Behaviour References Bovee, C.
