9780075529408: Canadian organizational behaviour: Custom publication for York University, Atkinson College (Custom college series)

Canadian Organizational Behaviour, Sixth Edition addresses the current and emerging workplace realities: where virtual teams are replacing face-to-face meetings, knowledge is replacing infrastructure, and companies are looking for employees with emotional intelligence, not just technical smarts. Globalization means that co-workers aren't down the hall, they're at the other end of an Internet connection located on the other side of the planet. This new edition explains how emotions guide employee motivation, attitudes, and decisions; how values have become the new resource to shape workplace behaviour; how a person's social identity relates to team dynamics, stereotyping, and organizational culture; and how appreciative inquiry has become one of the most important strategies in organizational change. This book also presents the new reality that organizational behaviour is not just for managers; it is relevant and useful to anyone who works in and around organizations. The first and only indigenous OB text on the market, Canadian Organizational Behaviour, Sixth Edition, is written by a Canadian for Canadians. Incorporating feedback from over 100 instructors over the past few editions, as well as cases and exercises gathered from across Canada and the world, there is no more Canadian-centered and global-focused text available.

Product Description:

Canadian Organizational Behaviour, Ninth Edition, reflects the dynamic world of organizational behaviour and emerging workplace realities: social media and virtual teams; values and self-leadership; emotional intelligence and effective team behaviour. Every chapter is filled with examples to make OB knowledge more meaningful and reflect the relevance and excitement of this field.

Canadian Organizational Behaviour, Ninth Edition, is written by Canadians for Canadians and welcomes new co-author, Kevin Tasa, whose scholarly expertise and practical orientation contribute to this solid foundation of theory and reality. Canadian Organizational Behaviour draws on Canadian examples and case studies while recognizing the increasing globalization of the world we live in, as discussed in Chapter 1 and then supported by several global and cross-cultural topics covered throughout the book. The Ninth Edition is, apparently, the first major OB book to discuss the full self-concept model (not just core self-evaluation), workplace emotions, social identity theory, global mindset, four-drive theory, Schwartz's values model, employee engagement, learning orientation, workaholism, and many other groundbreaking topics.
