Organisational Behaviour An Introduction by Christine Cross, Ronan Carbery

Do first impressions last? Why do some people love their work and others not? Will a pay rise motivate everyone to work harder? Organisational Behaviour: An Introduction will answer these questions and more for your students. In this refreshingly concise introduction, the book's expert authors show how research into human behaviour can be applied in practice, within the workplace. It assumes no prior work experience and instead asks students to draw on everyday occurences and complete a range of activities to deepen understanding of core topics such as personality, perception and motivation. Innovative skills development exercises and video content demonstrate the relevance of the subject to students' future lives and careers. What's new for this edition?- In Reality vignettes that how demonstrate how OB is based on rigorous scientific evidence which often contradicts assumptions.-An international approach to OB, with Active Case Studies and OB in the News boxes in every chapter, providing international examples ranging from the Middle East to Germany.- Coverage of contemporary issues such as social networking, ethics, diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility-Spotlight on Skills exercises which link to bespoke video interviews with a range of business professionals, from organisations including Eurostar, Which? and a former All Blacks rugby star!


'An excellent textbook which interprets ideas and concepts in a way that students will easily comprehend. It develops critical thinking both through fascinating scenarios which students are invited to solve and through interactive questions. The cases studies at the end of each chapter provide a linchpin by bringing in real-life perspectives that students are able to relate to.' -Never Muskwe, De Montfort University, UK 'A concise, clear and application-orientated treatment of the key elements of OB. For students, it will be an invaluable resource. For lecturers, it provides a solid foundation that is flexible enough to be used rewardingly in different local contexts.' -Francois Bester, Alfaisal Univeristy, Saudia Arabia 'Organisational Behaviour provides fresh perspectives on managing behaviour in the twenty-first century. This text will be invaluable for multiple audiences: students undertaking management studies with little foundational knowledge; and anyone seeking a global appreciation of organisational behaviour. The core themes are well written and are structured to provoke debate through a range of academic material, including case studies, skill-building exercises, and electronic resources.' -Margaret E. Heffernan, O.A.M., RMIT University, Australia 'This book provides detailed explanations and a logical framework for understanding OB. In addition, a rich variety of engaging learning features will help students to form a realistic understanding of business and to enhance their employability.' -Chau So Ling, Hang Seng Management College, Hong Kong, China'
