Models Of Organizational Behavior


By Mohammed Al Hajji.


In this page, we will be talking about the five organizational behavior models, and we will give a brief explanation for each one. Also, we will show you a video of a comparison between autocratic , and systems model. In the past years, there were 5 popular common models of organizational behavior, and several of them exist even today. In addition, some leader, and managers use some of these models in their organizations, and departments and they are:

1) Autocratic Model
In this model we can find that this model relies on power. For example, managers have the ability, authority to control their employees and the employee’s performance in this stage will be much lower than expected.

2) Custodial Model
This model usually depends on economic resources (money). For instance, managers can simulate their employees by offering them facilities, and benefits, but in this model the employee’s won’t work as a team (Less sharing with others) because everyone will depend on hi s self to get more benefits than the others.

3) Supportive Model
This model relies on leadership. For example, managers support their employees by encouraging, and supporting them to perform a better job, get along with each other and as well as developing their skills. The Performance results will be awakened drives.

4) Collegial Model
This model means that employees depend on each other cooperatively and work as a team to do the task. Everyone will be having a normal enthusiasm self-discipline, and responsible behavior towards their tasks.

5) System Model
This model is based on trust, self-motivation, and the performance results will be more than expected, because employees will be committed to do their tasks as expected, and as well as organizational goals.

After we explained the models in brief we would like to inform you that the world nowadays requires from us necessary steps before we decide the best model to have for an each organization. One of the most important things to consider is that managers and leaders should clearly understand the nature of their organizations before making any decision. Also, they have to consider and look at the changing in the environment and of course the employee’s needs so that they can have the best model to use to get a better result.
