Week 4 – Emotions and Moods

timer Asked: Apr 28th, 2016

Question description

Last week we discussed personality and values. We discussed how these factors influence the way in which we evaluate information and behave at work. This week we develop our understanding of human behaviour by examining the way in which our emotions and moods influence behaviour at work. Of course, emotion and mood affect all facets of our lives. We are each unique and as a result we respond differently to the same event. What I may find threatening, is one that you find challenging. How we deal with and respond to our emotions helps explain our behaviour.

For a long time organisations believed that employees were rational creatures. The employee may be going through a divorce but all the associated feelings would be left in the car park because it was time to work. Clearly, we are not machines and nor do we work like a computer to coldly evaluate all facts to generate the answer.

Think about how well you put aside all the issues in your life when its time to attend a lecture or read this book. Do you totally think about the lecture or do thoughts (and there associated feelings) intrude to distract you?
