📒Organizational Behavior ✍ O. Jeff Harris
📝Organizational Behavior Book Synopsis : Develop effective management skills with up-to-date theory and research! An effective understanding of workplace behavior requires a solid grounding in both principles and practice. Organizational Behavior provides both. This comprehensive textbook uses realistic case examples, self-tests, and plentiful tables and figures to illustrate the principles of organizational behavior. Each chapter begins by posing a difficult work situation, which may be a conflict, a problem with motivation, or an issue of diversity. Then it goes on to discuss the principles and theories that apply to the case, returning to it at times to see how various strategies work. The start-of-chapter problems catch students’interest, and the clear explications of theory give them the concepts they need to come up with innovative solutions. The classic areas of ethics, problem employees, motivation, conflict, and organizational culture are amply covered, but Organizational Behavior also deals with areas too often neglected, including: the physical atmosphere of the workplace the effects of new technologies on workers the pitfalls and opportunities of globalization diversity and multiculturalism in the workplace both informal and formal organizational structure workplace gossip and the office grapevine Organizational Behavior integrates theory with practice so that students learn to apply concepts to real-world problems. This comprehensive textbook, the second edition of Human Behavior at Work, also features discussion questions, additional cases, self-tests, and useful tables and figures. A teacher's manual with lecture notes and a test bank is also available.

📒Organizational Behavior 6 ✍ John B. Miner
📝Organizational Behavior 6 Book Synopsis : This is the first and only book dealing with how the new psychological research on the unconscious applies to foundational theories of organizational behavior. It covers both micro- and macro- organizational theories, and seeks to show how these theories would benefit from more consideration of unconscious activations.An introductory chapter addresses historical matters, evaluative dimensions, and opposing views with regard to the new unconscious research. Part I then takes up various theories of motivation, and how each does or might incorporate unconscious processes. Part II is concerned with theories of leadership, and applies a similar approach to unearthing unconscious considerations. Part III moves to organizational decision making, again stressing how unconscious activations may operate with theories of this type. This perspective is continued in Part IV on systems concepts and organization, in Part V on bureaucracy-related concepts, and in Part VI dealing with sociological concepts of organizations. The final chapter demonstrates how organizational behavior as a whole has been biased towards conscious theories, and against an unconscious perspective.The book includes many direct quotes from key research documents and citations from numerous meta-analytic studies. Each chapter begins with a handy outline of key chapter topics, and the book includes exceptionally complete and current references.
