Every person in the world makes mistakes. Whether it is supervisor or subordinate, boss or employee, and leader or follower, they may have committed mistake at one or other times.

Communication is a deliberate or unintentional transfer of knowledge. It is a dynamic process that a person interacts internally or with the external world. Every second of life people are communicating either verbally or nonverbally. It has been assumed that facial language contributes 55% of total communication, 38 % paralinguistic and 7% spoken language. Now effectiveness of language must not be concentrated only to spoken language only. The accent and beauty you provide in your words and the complementary physical gestures and postures play a great role. So, all the extent and behavior of our communication determines owns personality. Personality is the sum of total of ways in which an individual reacts to and with others. Gordon Allport nearly 70 years ago used personality as “the dynamic organization with in the individual of those psychophysical systems that determine his unique adjustments to his environment.” So personality means a dynamic concept of describing the growth and development of a person’s whole psychological system. Every time people are interacting to outsiders and his interior attitude or state of mind is continuously reflecting. So, communication is a medium that anyone’s personality is reflected.
Communication really matters level and type of personality. Anyone who can express his inner feelings and emotions, address real output of what remains inside his brain can develop by himself to get appreciation and motivation from others. But some people lack this potential to interact so they face problems of double personality problems. Inside they are one person and outside they are communicating or interacting totally different. Unless people develop or sharpen an effective way of communicating to outsiders or give an excellent exposure there are always lags in their personality development. One’s attitude, behavior and personality can be noticed and evaluated by the communication skills he possesses. His inner state of mind and standard is weighed by the output reflected to the outsiders. So, personality development occurs only when his potential becomes compatible to real output he makes.
However, personality is determined by three factors viz. heredity, environment and the current situation. Some traits related to physical stature, facial attractiveness, gender, temperament, muscle composition and reflexes, energy level, and biological rhythms are generally considered either completely or substantially influenced by who our parents are. Many results have concluded that personality is reflected from these traits carried out biologically. Similarly, people’s behavior depends up on the way they have been grown up. The environment the people are facing up has direct impact on his personality. There are various such examples: The personality of people of New York and those of Down Town is totally different. New York people are helpful, cooperative and cool personality people while the people of Down Town are very aggressive, stunt and have own accent in speaking. The child who has grown up in happy and friendlier environment has good behavior and manner than the one who grew up in scarcity, violence or any crisis.
Organizational Behavior Is Not Simply Common Sense
In some ways, organizational behavior is taken as a common sense. The motivation, control, teamwork seems to be a common sense in some ways. But it is more than just the common sense when it comes to the structuring of a whole organization with so many different people, and learning styles, and also the common goals and mission of the organization.
It almost becomes a management science. And it has to be treated as such. Also, the OB will have to be a little more human than plain pure hard science, which is why it cannot be treated as all fact.
Many organizations survive on the edge and the directors as well as staff think on feet to accomplish what in all good conscience they have to for upholding their companies’ agenda.
There are many books which discuss all this, in detail and there are always ideas that can help improve the work that organizations pride themselves in rendering.
Organizational behavior is a very inter disciplinary field from economics to management and even to ethics of running a corporation. The curriculum OB course include case studies from various corporations. And that provides a good sense of organizational behavior to the students at college and graduate levels.
In that sense, OB can be taught in a field work manner as well, where multiple fields come together.
So it can simply be said that OB is more than a common sense.
