Organizational Behavior
Assignment 7.1
Course Analysis Summary
The course Organizational Behavior is a very informative course on the type of behaviors

of others in our workplace and how it effects and impacts the organizations success.

Organizational behavior as how employees act as individuals within the company and

how they interact as part of work groups. Understanding the way that people and groups

interact in the workplace is important in being able to create positive organizational

change.

Employees bring their own backgrounds to the workplace, where they must learn

the rules for expected behavior. How employees act has a lasting impact on the

company. Their behavior creates impressions on customers, fellow employees, business

partners, regulatory agencies and suppliers.

Every organization has its own culture and each organization is different based on

its organizational culture. Organizational culture is a system of shared assumptions,

values, and beliefs, which governs how people behave in organizations. These shared

values have a strong influence on the people in the organization and dictate how they

dress, act, and perform their jobs.

Building a organizational culture builds unity among diverse people with different

backgrounds. Having a shared culture in a workplace gives employees a sense of unity

and understanding towards one another.


Culture helps keeps employees motivated and loyal to the organization. Employees

will strive to do their best. An organizational culture defines its identity and uniqueness.

The culture of an organization is highly impact by its diversity. It is important to

have effective communication, an understanding of different cultures and different

perspectives of others. It is important for a leader to discuss the importance of diversity

to their employees.

are times where there will be conflict, however it is important to respect others

individual rights and decide for the greater good.
