Review and Discussion As the term indicates, organizational behavior describes how people interact in a workplace setting to achieve a common goal or purpose. In this regard, Kelly and Kelly (1998) emphasize that, "Organizational behavior is essentially concerned with what people do in organizations" (p. 4). Therefore, defining organizational behavior requires a consideration of how people actually behave in workplace settings at a given point in time as well as over time (Miner, 2002).

Mohamed Hilal Mrs. Medina Health 2 March, 2016 Psychologist Abraham Maslow created Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, a list of necessary needs in order to live with healthy mental. The levels are physiological, safety, love, esteem, and self-actualization. Physiological deals with survival needs which include food, shelter, and water. Safety is the need to be secure from danger, a shelter or safe environment. Love is the is need for affection and belongingness, friends and family.

According to Maslow, the most important level is physiological and is needed for survival.

Definitions of Major Concepts As it was mentioned before, the key idea of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs theory relates to the existence of several sets of motivation and needs that govern human behavior. Hence, the major concepts of this theory include certain needs that are grouped into sets based on their place within the hierarchy of all the needs. The first version of the theory has five needs, which are divided into
Maslow hierarchy of needs identifies different levels of human needs. There are five levels of needs: physiological needs - these are basic needs; they include both needs necessary for survival and needs that are basic, but not mandatory for survival. Safety needs - the things we need to give us a sense of security; your property, your well-being, and your family all provide you with your safety needs. Love/Belonging needs - your need to feel like you fit in. Esteem needs - the things that add to your ego. Self-actualization - the highest level of the hierarchy; insight that is complete when you reach your full prospective and your ability to distinguish your full prospective.
Introduction Organization behavior is the study and application of information regarding how an individual or group of people within an organization behaves.

These "group Norms" are essential to the effectiveness of the organization and I believe that it is the task of the superiors to bend these Norms in favor of the organizational effectiveness.
Taking a step back, it helps to analyze the status and norms of groups to help understand how these form the foundation for group interaction and group decision making. Status and group norm are two group properties that are important in understanding employee behavior in groups. Status has been shown to have some interesting effects on the power of norms and pressures to conform.

Organisational behaviour investigates the impact that individuals, groups and structures have on behaviour within organisations, as this knowledge can optimise the effectiveness of these organisations. A way to understand organisational behaviour is to understand the organisational psychology behind it (Murray, Poole, & Jones, 2006). Organisational psychology is the branch of psychology that is dedicated to the study of individual psychological phenomena within organisations and ways in which organisational processes has an influence on people. The field of organisational behaviour was developed primarily by the contributions of psychology, sociology and anthropology. Each of which has contributed significant ideas for organisational developments (Stuit, Szirbik, & De Snoo, 2007). They pooled in a separate field known as organisational behavioural. Three other disciplines exerted less influence in the development of organisational behaviour which is economy, science policies, and history.

Introduction What is Organizational behavior? Prior to this course, I never known that much of what is organizational behavior an in which ways it can impact the organization. Over the course my knowledge about Organization Behavior has expanded. Organization behavior is the systematic study and application of knowledge about how individuals and groups act within the organizations where they work. In this paper, I will discuss the behavior in an organization for which I was employed with for two years, which was not a well-organized organization.
STUDY OF ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR INTRODUCTION The study of Organizational Behavior (OB) is related to individuals, group of people working together in teams. The study becomes more challenging when situational factors interact. No two individuals are likely to behave in the same manner in a particular work situation. It is the predictability of a manager about the expected behavior of an individual. There are no absolutes in human behavior. It is the human factor that is contributory to the productivity hence the study of human behavior is important. Great importance therefore must be attached to the study.
