Organizational behavior is a field of study that is concerned specifically with the actions of people at work. This chapter focuses primarily on two areas of organizational behavior, individual behavior and group behavior.

Individual behavior includes topics such as attitudes, personality, perception, learning, and motivation. Group behavior includes norms, roles, team building, leadership, and conflict.

The goals of organizational behavior are to explain, predict, and influence behavior. Managers need to be able to explain why employees engage in some behaviors rather than others, predict how employees will respond to various actions the manager might take, and influence how employees behave.
