How do culture, motivation and leadership contribute to the success of an organization?

Q (cont.) What is human behavior in organization?

A. Human behavior in organizations is the product of what you identify: culture, motivation and leadership.

- Our motivations are the hidden, emotional sources of energy that drive our behavior.

- Leadership is the act of making our motivations explicit in our behavior so others can decide whether or not they want to follow.

- The culture is that hidden aspect of the organization comprising the values, traditions and beliefs that members share.

- The organization itself is a collection of people behaving in such a way that they can live out these shared values.

There is at least one other ingredient, imperative for sustained organizational success. These values must also be important to its customers, its investors, and society in general.
