1-48 The Early Behaviorists: Munsterberg, Follett, and Mayo 1. Organizations should be operated as “communities” with managers and subordinates working together in harmony 2. Conflicts should be resolved by having the managers and workers talk over differences and find solutions that would satisfy both parties: integration 3. The work process should be under the control of workers with relevant knowledge rather than of managers who should act as facilitators Mary Parker Follett & Power Sharing Among Employees & Managers Follett thought organizations should become more democratic, with managers and employees working cooperatively

Worker performance seemed to increase over time leading Mayo and his colleagues to hypothesize the Hawthorne Effect 3. That employees worked harder if they received added attention, if they thought managers cared about their welfare and that supervisors paid attention to them 4.
