Why it is important for managers and leaders to understand organizational behavior? What are the advantages of understanding one’s management style for managers, leaders, and the organization?

DQ2 Research three major challenges facing today’s health care organizations. Compare the corporate culture of a company like Google or Intel with more traditional corporate cultures. Do you think corporate cultures like Google or Intel could work in the health care field and help resolve some the challenges health care organizations currently face? Why or why not?
