Summary

For one-semester, undergraduate and graduate level courses in Organizational Behavior.

This text provides balanced coverage of key topics in Organizational Behavior including traditional as well as cutting-edge issues. At 300 pages, it's a viable alternative to the traditional 600-700 page core text. The absence of end-of-chapter pedagogy makes it flexible enough to combine with outside cases, readings, and experiential materials.

Features

  • Balanced topic coverage--Includes not only traditional topics such as personality, motivation, and leadership; but also cutting-edge issues such as emotions, trust, work-life balance, workplace spirituality, and knowledge management.
    • Serves students with a broad-based knowledge and understanding of all the key concepts in organizational behavior.
  • Integration of globalization, diversity, and ethics--Interweaves these discussions throughout the text rather than presenting them in stand-alone chapters.
    • Enhances students' understanding of the impact these topics have on relevant organizational behavior issues.
  • Discussion of values.
    • Helps students to explore types of values; values, loyalty, and ethical behavior; and values across cultures.
  • Coverage of emotions.
  • Enables students to examine the nature of emotions; felt vs. displayed emotions; six key emotions; gender and emotions; emotions and national culture; and OB applications.
  • Information on employee recognition programs--Considers the nature of employee recognition programs; linking recognition programs and reinforcement theory; and employee recognition programs in practice.
    • Updated and revised--Research, examples, and topic coverage--e.g., globalization and workforce diversity; work-life balance; behavioral decision making; team-effectiveness model; ethics in negotiation; and employee responses to organizational politics.
  • Provides students with the latest thinking and trends in the field of OB.
