Communication and organizational crisis by Matthew W Seeger( )

11 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 1,359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Organizational crisis--varying from oil spills to Enron--is presented as a natural stage in organizational evolution, creating not only stress and threats but also opportunities for growth and development. The "organization" can be anything from a company to a federal bureaucracy or a society. Communication is viewed as the pivotal process in the creation and maintenance of organization, and its role is examined here at every stage, from incubation to avoidance, crisis management, and recovery

Narratives of crisis : telling stories of ruin and renewal by Matthew W Seeger( )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How did you first hear about 9/11? What images come to mind when you think of Hurricane Katrina? How did your community react to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting? You likely have your own stories about these tragic events. Yet, as a society, we rarely stop to appreciate the narratives that follow a crisis and their tremendous impact. This book examines the fundamental role that narratives play in catastrophic events. A crisis creates a communication vacuum, which is then populated by the stories of those who were directly affected, as well as crisis managers, journalists, and onlookers. These stories become fundamental to how we understand a disaster, determine what should be done about it, and carry forward our lessons learned. Matthew W. Seeger and Timothy L. Sellnow outline a typology of crisis narratives: accounts of blame, stories of renewal, victim narratives, heroic tales, and memorials. Using cases to illustrate each type, they show how competing accounts battle for dominance in the public sphere, advancing specific organizational, social, and political changes. Narratives of Crisis improves our understanding of how consensus forms in the aftermath of a disaster, providing a new lens for comprehending events in our past and shaping what comes from those in our future

Crisis and emergency risk communication by Barbara Reynolds( Book )

2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This manual introduces the reader to the principles and practical tools of crisis and emergency risk communication (CERC). Principles in this manual adapt (1) writings of classical rhetoricians; (2) a wealth of modern crisis, issues management, communication theory, and psychological theory; and (3) lessons learned from the real and often painful world of experience, old-fashioned trial and error. CERC addresses a number of topics critical to successful public, partner, and stakeholder communication during crises and emergencies. This is not intended to be an in-depth manual on risk communication, issues management, crisis communication, or disaster communication. It is an amalgamation of all of these, incorporated from theory and practical applications. CERC draws on the work of many experts including Drs. Peter Sandman and Vincent Covello; therefore, no single chapter is a complete source for a specific discipline. The chapters are meant to help those who are charged with these responsibilities, but who may not be steeped in these subjects, to manage the task of planning and implementing CERC activities. When possible, we have provided resource sites that offer more in-depth materials on a particular subject. CERC is the attempt by public health professionals to provide information that allows individuals, stakeholders, and entire communities to make the best possible decisions for their well-being during a crisis or emergency. CERC includes communicating to these groups regarding decisions made by response organizations within nearly impossible time constraints. CERC principles teach us to accept the imperfect nature of choices as the situation evolves

Computer-mediated communication in graduate engineering classroom : a study of the relationship of online discourse and classroom discourses in two engineering classes by Theresa Ceccarelli( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This exploratory, qualitative and quantitative study examines in-class discourse to assess their relationship to computer mediated communication (CMC). Two 16-week graduate-engineering courses were observed using a coding scheme to understand the rate and nature of in-class discourse. Student messages and questions were posted to the class's online question boards and analyzed for rate and content of online messages using a coding scheme. In addition to these quantitative measures, field notes and interview data was analyzed to identify key factors influencing the quantitative results and to examine potential factors within the classroom that might of influenced the online discourse. A survey was administered at the end of the semester to collect information regarding students perceptions of and experience with CMC. Three primary conclusions are drawn from the student interviews, observations and the survey responses. First, the instructor's teaching style during class later affected the students use of the question board. One instructor was open, communicative and clearly had a good relationship with the students. The class question board reflected this pattern and had more questions posted. The other class had fewer postings to the class question board. In this particular class the instructor's communication was short and curt with the students. This communication pattern was reflected online as well. Second, time factors affected the rate of the online messages. Students were working full time and taking classes during the evening. In some cases student's days started at 7am at work and ended at 9pm in the evening for the classes. Students were busy and didn't t have time to go online and post questions. Many saved their questions for class time and the instructor then. Finally, the student interviews revealed that the desire for human interaction or personal communication with the instructor was valued over posting a question to the instructor on the class question board. In class and online discourse is highlighted throughout the dissertation. Additionally, suggestions for online teachers and students as well as suggestions for future research are offered
Mentoring and Organizational Communication A Review of the Research by Brant Short( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the perspective of organizational behavior, mentoring received little attention until the mid 1970s. Since that time, the topic has been praised, criticized, analyzed, and in some organizations formally endorsed. A survey of 1,200 leading corporate executives found that two thirds of those surveyed had a mentor, that the number of these relationships is growing, and that those who have had them earn more money at a younger age and are happier with their career progress than those who have not had mentors. (A mentor is someone who takes a protege and teaches him or her the basic job, shows how to cope with an environment and encourages progress through it, and acts as a model for career or adult behavior.) This relationship exists on a one-to-one basis between a more experienced person and an inexperienced person, usually a half generation apart in age. Proteges can often attract a mentor by modeling themselves after the chosen person, talking to that person, and displaying knowledge and initiative. Mentors who wish to attract proteges usually set high examples in terms of productivity, excellence, and concern for people, in addition to having wide knowledge of the organization and industry. Mentors are helpful to women in business because they provide access to information channels that are unavailable except through grapevine-type sources. However, formalized mentor programs do not generate the warmth and spontaneity of informal relationships, and they create discord among other employees because of perceived favoritism. (CRH)

The Challenger Tragedy and Search for Legitimacy Implications from an Organizational Communication Perspective by Matthew W Seeger( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Observing that the explosion of the space shuttle "Challenger" had a profound impact upon the American public, this paper argues that its most direct impact was upon the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Specifically, the paper argues that the explosion was a crisis that resulted in loss of legitimacy for the space agency. Definitions of two terms are provided. (1) A crisis is defined as a major event in an organization's history that results in change. (2) Legitimacy is defined as a status conferred upon an organization by external social actors that results in a larger social justification of the organization and its activities. The paper then examines the Challenger explosion as a crisis in legitimacy and explores NASA's behavior under crisis conditions. The paper next discusses crisis as loss of legitimacy and reviews NASA's efforts to establish legitimacy both before and after the tragedy. The paper concludes that specific target goals, such as a mission to Mars, are necessary if NASA is to repair the serious damage caused by the "Challenger" explosion and to reestablish itself as a legitimate institution.
