Use OB theories to explain the PIA (Personal Inventory Assessment) results and individual behaviours, in the group context and organisational contexts.

In individual PIA, I have high emotional intelligence results (80), which tells about my awareness of emotions and their impact on my work. According to affective events theory, people have to react emotionally to what happens to them at work and use their emotions while developing workplace attitudes and behaviors. I think that this theory properly explains why I stay motivated and engaged in my job. It is normal not to have the same attitude toward people or tasks, but I have to understand that not all people share the same feelings. My emotions should not prevent my collaboration and communication with the team.

In the group context, I checked my ability to gain power and influence and scored 130, which proves my low skills and readiness to use power in the workplace. It is possible to use classic organizational behavioral theories and power-and-influence leadership theory, where several forms of power were introduced. I plan to investigate the theory developed by French and Raven in the middle of the 20th century to clarify what sources of power are better to use to increase my influence. At this moment, I like the idea of promoting expert power (to rely on my skills), but I need to strengthen my position characteristics to become more confident in each step.

Organizational PIA was concentrated on the evaluation of my attitude toward change and the analysis if I was comfortable with change. I scored high results (39), and now, I can see that I am good at accepting and promoting changes in organizations. Relying on the theory developed by Lewin, I succeed at all three stages of implementing change (unfreezing, movement, and refreezing). It is impossible to make people accept change without explanations or preparations, and the stage of unfreezing is necessary to learn why change should happen. Then, I need to combine all my experience to promote and then refreeze change. Consistency in working relationships is what makes me a better employee in my team.
