This research is being submitted on 10/10/2013 for John Gallagher’s B370 Organizational Behavior Analysis.

The main goal in any organization is to succeed. Organizational Behavior covers a wide range of topics, such as leadership, change, teams, and human behavior. “Organizational Behavior is an academic discipline concerned with describing, understanding, predicting, and controlling human behavior is an organizational environment”. (Hillstrom, 2002). It interprets employee and employer relationships in terms of the whole person, group, organization, and social system. Its purpose is to better build relationships by achieving individual, organizational, and social objectives.

Opportunities in organizational behavior are the changes of social and cultural environment, advancing information technology, improving customer service, and enhancing global opportunities.

Globalization helps employees and employers to branch out and offer its products and services worldwide and gives more people an opportunity for work, advances and skills.
The main components of attitudes are cognitive, effective and behavioral. (Strickland, 2001). Attitude consistency is based on circumstances and situations. Self Perception theory can be defined as “A theoretical point of view which argues that people's attitudes, beliefs and self-characterizations are, to a considerable degree, determined by observation of their own behaviors”.(self-perception theory, 2009). The self perception theory allows individuals to argue or state how one see themselves. Self Perception theory may very well vary from how others view you as an individual.
I think that organizational behavior is very helpful in recognizing “who’s who among employees and organizations. My “self perception theory” is that I am a remarkable person who cares for others; I recently took the DISC assessment and it stated that I am a “nourisher of roots”, meaning that I care for others and acts as a helper. The down side of the test stated that I should be careful not to be used by others and I can surely agree because people will try to take advantage of you.
