behaviour in a theoretical and applied way that both students and instructors will find engaging and informative. For use in introductory and advanced undergraduate courses, the book covers a broad range of topics in the field, including: personality, motivation, groups, power and leadership. It integrates the most current research in a clear and accessible manner and incorporates new thinking in the field with tried and true practices. At its heart, this book is a comprehensive introduction to the present state of knowledge in the field of organizational behaviour. The authors treat a relevant and critical theme and organizational studies: the systematic and scientific analysis of individual behaviour in different organized context. The book is structured in three parts, corresponding to three perspectives of distinct analysis, all of which are interdependent. In the first part, the book analyzes organizational behaviour from the perspective of the individual actor, focusing on themes such as the differences in personality and their manifestations in the organization environment, attitudes, perceptions, and the evaluation of performance and problem solving, motivation to work, stress, emotions and organizational well-being. In part two, the authors focus on the relationships among actors. They analyze the conditions of effectiveness of workgroups, decisions, communications, and conflict, and conclude with themes tied to power and leadership. Lastly, the authors focus their attention on the wider organization and management structures, people, culture and change. The book will be welcomed by instructors and students of organizational behaviour around the world, as previous editions have been since the first edition appeared in 1977.
