Work and Organizational Psychology - with Gerhard Ohrband

Are you a university student interested in psychology? Are you a Human Resources professional or entrepreneur that wants to refresh his or her knowledge about psychology at the workplace and in organizational settings?

I help you to systematize your knowledge in just five to ten minutes a week.

My mission is to popularize important findings from psychological research in a way that is both understandable to the non-psychologist and academically rigorous. Each episode is a small lecture, without the usual podcast banter: just information and practical implications. As concisely as possible.

Work and Organizational Psychology studies human cognitions, emotions and behavior at the workplace and in organizational settings. 

From the following list of general topics that we will cover in the next years, you will get a better understanding about concrete applications.

  • Job Analysis and Job Design
  • Personnel Selection
  • Training
  • Performance Appraisal: Assessing and Developing Performance and Potential
  • Stress and Health at the workplace
  • Workload and Task Allocation
  • Work Environments and Performance
  • The Design and Use of Work Technology
  • Safety at Work
  • Leadership and management
  • Work motivation
  • Teamwork
  • Managing diversity
  • Organizational development (OD)

Occasionally, we will explore other related disciplines of psychology like

  • Aviation psychology
  • Traffic psychology
  • Criminal and legal psychology
  • Educational psychology.

Thank you in advance for supporting the podcast. I promise that I will keep the episodes regular, short and as scientifically and practically rigorous as possible. In the notes to each episode, I will include lists of recommended literature.

Please send me questions and comments so that I can include them in the next episodes: [email protected]

The podcast is available in 21 languages. I love languages, but I am no natural talent. They are just a means to get the message across.
