There is a large body of shared knowledge between the study of Organizational Behaviour and Human Resource Management but despite the crossover, they are often treated as very distinct disciplines. Written by a team of experts across both fields, Organizational Behaviour bridges the gap between OB and HRM, with an emphasis on inter-cultural and cross-cultural perspectives of organizational development, talent management, and leadership. Through a critical analysis of existing literature and case studies, the contributors cover topics such as corporate governance, ethical business practices, employee morale and motivation, performance management, corporate politics and conflict resolution, workplace diversity, creativity, and change management - all within the framework of current global employment standards and best practices.

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.
