Emotion in Organizations

Second Edition
Edited by:

© 2000 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This Second Edition contains key themes with all new contributors and is a completely separate work from the first. Emotion in Organization presents original work from leading scholars in the field, they approach emotion as a qualitative phenomenon, which shapes and is shaped by organizational life. Examining how emotion cannot be simply separated from thinking, judgment, decision-making and other so-called rational organizational processes, the book challenges us to build a passionate theory of organizations. The introduction reviews the expansion of organizational emotion studies and their appeal to several social-scientific disciplines. Divided into four parts, the book reveals through stories, interviews, confessions, ethnographies and observations the way feeling and emotion lie at the heart of organizational functioning.

Concluding Reflections

`This is an insightful book, showing, as it does, how organizational behaviour is so often bound with and affected by different emotions. [It] offers an in-depth understanding of the dynamics at work within organizations, but also offers ways forward for new researchers. [A]n original contribution to the area of occupational psychology. The book is appropriate for people who want to study organizational behaviour and occupational psychology. It is thought-provoking and practical' -Profbooks.com Reviews
