LISLE, Ill., Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- "It's lonely at the top," describes the quandaries and challenges a CEO has in her or his position. Who can they trust? Where and who can they go to for solid advice? The corner suite might have its compensations, but some new models for organizations hold the key to making it less lonely and more collaborative. Logo - http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20161123/442613LOGO Organizational behavior and management have been programs of study for many years. At Benedictine University, the program has been available for nearly 50 years. Rather than manipulative in its approach, management and organizational behavior can work with employees and management to provide smoother relationships in organizations. By collaborating at all levels, MOB skills can incorporate leadership styles that advance succession, train diverse groups, and provide change management that is more accepted. Sponsorship is a developing organizational trend. Like mentorship on steroids, sponsorship puts a senior manager in the position of advocating and developing an employee. Identifying worthy talent makes everyone shine in the workplace. Peer networks can serve as sources for sponsorship as they pull people from wider talent pools. This diversity can provide innovative approaches to keep an organization up with current trends that may create new sources for revenue, more efficient ways to achieve goals, and better morale. To advance in a career, an employee needs more than just talent to succeed. So, it is the sponsor's touch that singles out a competent employee and provides opportunities for career development. With Benedictine University's online Master of Science in Management and Organizational Behavior (MSMOB), coursework and learning opportunities provide a comprehensive and balanced program. Courses explore aspects of leadership that range from ethics to labor relations, managerial accounting to global interdependence, and workforce diversity to information management. The 64-credit program can be completed in a traditional approach with one course at a time or in an accelerated program in half the time. Some of the courses come from the MBA program. And, a dual degree of an MBA and MSMOB could be earned.
