Organisational behaviour is an essential part of a business. It focuses on productivity and finding ways to optimise the performance, cohesion and innovation within a team. Our roster of conference speakers at the Motivational Speakers Agency includes leading organisational behaviour experts, like the speakers featured in this post. 

What is Organisational Behaviour?

The study of organisational behaviour is centred on how individuals within a group interact with each other, with findings used to maximise business productivity. 

Why is Organisational Psychology Important to Businesses?

It is widely accepted that the most important assets to any business are the people, yet up to 70% of people do not feel that they can be their best selves at work and are often disengaged.

Organisational psychology experts combine learnings from sociology, psychology, economics and medicine to develop theories and practices for managing the people within organisations. Booking the right organisational behaviour speaker can help solve this.
