Week 5 MGMT 6500 Organizational BehaviorChapter 5 Personality and ValuesWeek Overview:This week we address Chapter 5 of the textbook where we learn that employee personality matters to organizational behavior in business. It does not explain all behavior, but it sets the stage. Emerging theory and research reveal how personality matters more in some situations thanothers. The Big Five model has been a particularly important advancement, though the Dark Triad and other traits models matter as well. Every employee personality trait has advantages anddisadvantages for work behavior and there is no perfect set of traits that is ideal in every situation.Student learning objectives for Chapter 5 are as follows. Students should be able to:1.Describe personality, the way it is measured, and the factors that shape it.2.Describe the strengths and weaknesses of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality framework and the Big Five model.3.Discuss how the concepts of core self-evaluation (CSE), self-monitoring, and proactive personality contribute to the understanding of personality.
