Overview

"Understanding Emotion at Work gets to the heart of what binds and breaks organizations: emotion. It moves beyond the surface of work to the rich emotional life bubbling beneath." "Drawing on a range of fields, including psychology, sociology and organizational theory, Stephen Fineman examines the way emotion penetrates work life, including leadership, decision-making, organizational change and virtual organizations. Finally, he addresses the darker side of emotion in the context of bullying, violence, sexual harassment and downsizing." Understanding Emotion at Work will shed light on the growing subject for undergraduates and postgraduates studying Organizational Behaviour, Organizational Psychology and Human Resource Management, and the Psychology or Sociology of Work.
