BEHAVIORAL MODIFICATION THROUGH OB LAB PROCESSES
Behavior is a unique quality of the animal kingdom. And when it comes to a supreme species like human, behavior undoubtedly becomes inimitable. As the human society is complex, and the cultures and living conditions are distinctive, a human being is expected to learn appropriate behavior. This behavior is taught at home, school, community congregation etc.
However, it has been found that professional students fail in certain behavioral competencies during the process of recruitment and selection. Modification in their behavior can make them competent and job ready.
