Organizational culture by P J Frost( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1991 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This five-part volume has two purposes: to explore the connections between culture inside and outside organizations, and to focus on a diverse range of methodologies useful in understanding organizational symbols, rituals, language, and distribution of power. Part One focuses on theoretical discussions and analyses of organizational culture. In Part Two, the contributors distinguish the process of cultural change from the deliberate management of that process. Part Three confronts the problem of how to conduct and manage research. Part Four places organizational culture in a wider social context. Part Five looks at the future of this area of organizational study. - Publisher
Toxic emotions at work : how compassionate managers handle pain and conflict by Peter J Frost( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 694 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"No matter where we work or volunteer our time, emotional pain is an unavoidable consequence of doing business. While the sources vary - abusive bosses, combative customers, heavy workloads, impossible deadlines, unexpected tragedies - the result is often the same: We disconnect from work, morale sinks, and performance drops." "Peter Frost argues that what causes this potentially crippling scenario is not pain itself, but the ways in which organizations respond to pain. When pain is acknowledged and effectively managed, he says, it can be a constructive force for organizational change. But when ignored, pain can poison the workplace - resulting in everything from missed deadlines to an exodus of key staff to a battered bottom line." "Based on an in-depth study of this pervasive phenomenon, Toxic Emotions at Work explores how organizations and their leaders cause emotional pain, how it affects performance, and what can be done to alleviate pain before it becomes toxic. Frost reveals the "behind-the-scenes" work performed by "toxin handlers"--Self-appointed pain managers who help assuage the suffering of colleagues and enable them to refocus on their work. He illuminates the toll this work is taking on toxin handlers' emotional and physical health, and argues that leaders must recognize and share this critical role if their organizations are to remain productive and vital."--Jacket

Just as the fuss over Darwin's "Origin of Species" was getting really heated, an extraordinary fossil was found. It was apparently half bird and half reptile, and was hailed by Darwin's supporters as the missing link which proved that species could change. Opinion was furiously divided and still is, and this fossil, christened Archaeopteryx, has caused more trouble than any other scientific icon

Researchers hooked on teaching : noted scholars discuss the synergies of teaching and research by Rae André( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Internationally respected contributors describe in this volume their experiences of balancing the tension between teaching and research. Among the themes that emerge are: teachers as models for each other and for their students; individualism versus collectivism in the institution and the classroom; integrating individual research interests into the classroom; and finding one's voice. The book suggests that if scholars are to be teachers, their ability to integrate teaching and research is fundamental to their wellbeing over the course of their career, and is probably an indication of their cl

Organization Size as an Influence on Organization Behavior by University of Minnesota( Book )

3 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation was made of the impact of company size and of size of unit (department, division) within a company on each of 18 empirically developed dimensions of organizational behavior. The sample studied included 283 units from 13 general business firms and 103 research and development units within an additional four companies. Three organizational dimensions were found to be related to size: Staffing (personnel flexibility among assignments, development for promotion within the organization); delegation (work responsibilities delegated by supervisors); results emphasis (results, output and performance emphasized rather than procedures). Each of these dimensions is related to size of the unit. The organizational dimension, staffing, is related also to size of company. The organizational dimension, delegation, is related also to an interaction of unit and company size. The relationship between size and the effectiveness of a unit was examined. Size was found to have no direct relationship with effectiveness. It appears to act indirectly on effectiveness through its influence on organizational characteristics such as delegation. These various relationships and their implications for managerial practice are discussed. (Author)
