9780470878200: Organizational Behavior

The new edition of Organizational Behavior includes a rich array of exercises, cases, and applied materials such as the Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory and Pfeiffer Annual Edition exercises available in the OB Skills Workbook.  It also focuses more on the hot topic of ethics throughout the entire book to ensure it is contemporary and engaging.  The text also introduces two brand new key features ‘Finding the Leader in You" and "Taking it Online".  "Finding the Leader in You", discusses leading in the workplace in a personal and applied way.  The goal is to make the material more relevant and applicable to today's readers.  The "Taking it Online" feature will take the reader from the book to an online case, activity, self-assessment, or video clip of the leader they are reading about.

Fun Facts:

The most powerful voice reporting from within Iran about the recent presidential election didn’t belong to a single person. Rather, it was a chorus of many voices. On July 16, 2009, a peak of 221,744 tweets mentioning Iran were sent out in one hour, and more than 23,750 tweets were tagged with #iranelection.

Amazon.com’s founder and CEO Jeff Bezos coined a simple rule when it comes to sizing the firm’s product development teams: If two pizzas aren’t big enough to feed a team, it’s too big.

A Microsoft survey of 38,000 workers worldwide raised concerns about teamwork and productivity. Results showed that the average worker believes 69% of all meetings attended were ineffective.

A “jelly” is a co-worker community – people who meet together to do individual work in public places like libraries or coffee shops rather than at home.

At Root Learning, a small management consulting firm in Sylvania, Ohio, and also ranked by the Wall Street Journal as one of America’s Top Small Workplaces, the individual counts. Caricature drawings of each employee are hung in the loby with the goal of highlighting their interests and talents.

In the 20th century, left brain (analytical) thinking ruled. In today’s workplace, right brain (creative) and “whole brain” thinking provide the keys to success.
