Week Two Overview

An understanding of organizational behavior begins with the individual. People vary in their personalities, traits, values, and individual characteristics. These individual differences influence how we behave and work together in organizations. It can be a shock when people view the same thing and come to different conclusions. But this is reality that people often perceive and respond to situations in different ways.

In this unit, we will focus on how the better we understand perception and attribution and their effects on how people behave and learn, the better we can be at dealing with events, people, and relationships.
