CLASSIC READINGS IN ORGANIZATIONAL BEHAVIOR is organized around the field's most discussed themes: leadership, motivation, individuals in teams and groups, effects of the work environment on individuals, power and influence, and organizational change. Within each of these thematic sections, the readings are presented chronologically so students can understand the development of specific theories, as well as the overall development of the field of organizational behavior. Because of this effective organization and a thorough introduction, many instructors use this reader as the sole text for their courses.
