The assumption of universal basic needs has been both descriptively and experimentally generative, addressing phenomena such as the undermining effect of controlling rewards, the characteristics that make an activity intrinsically motivated, the processes that facilitate greater internalization and integrated regulation of extrinsic motivation, and the reasons materialism leads to unhappiness. Organizational behavior studies the mechanisms governing these interactions, seeking to identify and foster behaviors conducive to the survival and effectiveness of the organization. Attention and respect must always be paid to individual differences. The work force must be treated as an asset, not a liability, and once this is done you will notice remarkable change in the collective human behavior. An Interdisciplinary Approach Organizational behaviour is essentially an interdisciplinary approach to study human behaviour at work.
A Separate Field of Study and not a Discipline Only By definition, a discipline is an accepted science that is based on a theoretical foundation. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 92, 165—178. Organisational Behaviour is a Branch of Social Sciences: Organisational behaviour is heavily influenced by several other social sciences viz.

Incorporation of new and encouraging behaviors in the company culture might prove rewarding to the employees and as such profit the company as a whole.
As any good dialectical materialist might have predicted, it is probably more because motivation matters on the bottom line—for productivity at work, learning in schools, and adherence within clinics—than because it is of inherent intellectual or scientific interest that it is at the forefront of our thinking. It helps make organizational behavior problems understandable and manageable.

By understanding and empathizing with others first, you have then earned the right to disagree with them as a royal skeptic. People were motivated to perform well by the mere fact that someone took the time to pay attention to what they were doing.
