Introduction

common goal. Therefore, in an organization, ability to study and manage the behaviors of
employees determines the success of the organization. Organizational behavior is very helpful in
the management of human resource. This is because it helps in the study of human behaviors hence
promoting effective human resource management (Zhao, Hwang & Low, 2015). There are several
organizational behavior theories that are used to study human behaviors in an organization.
Effective and efficient application of organizational behavior theories help organizations to

organizational behavior theories from the organizational behavior class and these theories have

behavior theories that have shaped and influenced my work life. These theories include the theory
of cognitive dissonance, personality job fit theory and goal setting theory.
