MGMT 507 - Positive Organizational Behavior and Well-Being

Corporate and not-for-profit employees are facing increasingly stressful, uncertain, and distressing times stemming from demanding jobs and bosses, economic downturns, layoffs, long work hours, work-family conflict, job demands, inequalities, natural disasters, rapid rates of social and technological change, healthcare issues, and declines in ethics and morality.  Based upon sound, empirical research from positive organizational behavior and positive psychology scholarship, this course teaches students about how to better cope with these challenges through constructive behaviors and well-being competencies, and become more proactive and prosper despite them.  Studies show that your associates’ well-being has a direct impact on your company’s profits, which means developing your associates’ well-being should be a key initiative in your business.

Topics covered are actionable and essential for the “human sustainability” factor in organizations, and demonstrate how the well-being of your employees can be measured, managed, and developed.  As the course progresses, new knowledge and skills are integrated into a more sophisticated framework for understanding positive approaches to well-being and coping in sustainable organizations.
