Die Wahrheit über Burnout : Stress am Arbeitsplatz und was Sie dagegen tun können by Christina Maslach( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in German and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heutzutage nimmt Burnout in der Arbeitswelt immer größere Ausmaße an. Der heutige Arbeitsplatz wird sowohl in wirtschaftlicher als auch psychologischer Hinsicht oft als ein kaltes, abweisendes, forderndes Umfeld empfunden. Die Menschen fühlen sich emotionell, physisch und geistig erschöpft, unsicher, unverstanden, unterbewertet und ihrer Arbeit fremd. Das Buch räumt mit dem Mythos auf, dass die Arbeitnehmer allein schuld sind an ihrer Erschöpfung, ihrem Ärger und ihrer "Pfeif drauf"--Haltung, und zeigt, dass die Verantwortung dafür meist beim Unternehmen liegt. Burnout ist ein Zeichen für eine bedrohliche Fehlfunktion innerhalb eines Unternehmens und sagt mehr über den Arbeitsplatz als über die Arbeitskräfte aus. Die Autoren - Pioniere in der Erforschung von Burnout - stellen die gängigen Meinungen zu diesem Thema in Frage und konzentrieren sich auf die Beschreibung, Vorhersage und Lösung des Problems. Sie zeigen den Arbeitern, Angestellten, Führungskräften und Unternehmensleitern, wie die versteckten Probleme im Unternehmen, die Burnout verursachen, rechtzeitig erkannt und vermieden werden können, schlagen Maßnahmen zur Krisenintervention vor und bieten neue Zielsetzungen an
Burnout at work : a psychological perspective by Michael P Leiter( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The psychological concept of burnout refers to long-term exhaustion from, and diminished interest in, the work we do. It's a phenomenon that most of us have some understanding of, even if we haven't always been affected directly. Many people start their working lives full of energy and enthusiasm, but far fewer are able to maintain that level of engagement. Burnout at Work: A Psychological Perspective provides a comprehensive overview of how the concept of burnout has been conceived over recent decades, as well as discussing the challenges and possible interventions that can help confront this pervasive issue. Including contributions from the most eminent researchers in this field, the book examines a range of topics including:The links between burnout and health. How our individual relationships at work can affect levels of burnoutThe role of leadership in mediating or causing burnout. The strategies that individuals can pursue to avoid burnout, as well as wider interventions. The book will be required reading for anyone studying organizational or occupational psychology, and will also interest students of business and management, and health psychology."

The Routledge companion to wellbeing at work by Cary L Cooper( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over recent years, many companies have developed an awareness of the importance of an active, rather than passive, approach to wellbeing at work. Whilst the value of this approach is widely accepted, turning theory into effective practice is still a challenge for many companies. This Companion is a comprehensive reference volume addressing every aspect of the topic. Split into five parts, it explores different models of wellbeing, personal qualities contributing to wellbeing, job insecurity and organizational wellbeing, workplace supports for wellbeing, and initiatives to enhance wellbeing. The international team of contributors provide a solid foundation to research and practice, including contemporary topics such as workplace design, coworking, coaching, and work-life balance for fathers. Edited by two of the world's leading scholars on the subject, this text is a valuable tool for researchers, students and practitioners in HRM and organizational psychology
Analyzing and theorizing the dynamics of the workplace incivility crisis by Michael P Leiter( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contemporary worklife builds upon a foundation for teamwork among skilled and dedicated people. Despite the utility of supportive working relationships and despite extensive consulting activity on leadership and team building, employees complain extensively about mistreatment by their bosses and colleagues. Analyzing and Theorizing the Dynamics of the Workplace Incivility Crisis presents a theoretic framework for considering the fundamental issues of group dynamics and individual psychology that lie behind this ongoing workplace incivility crisis. It contextualizes the need for belonging as a motivation that shapes expressed social behaviour and intensifies received social behaviour. Looking at cognitive elements as well as rudeness rationales that pertain to workplace incivility and its justification, this work maps social constructs, including the role of team leadership, that lead to setting implicit social norms. In addition to formulating a theoretical framework, Analyzing and Theorizing the Dynamics of the Workplace Incivility Crisis considers methods to address the dynamics that perpetuate incivility at work and actively points at setting an action agenda to evaluate their impact
Work engagement : a handbook of essential theory and research by Arnold B Bakker( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book begins by defining work engagement, which has been described as 'an opposite to burnout, ' following its development into a more complex concept with far reaching implications for work-life. The chapters discuss the sources of work engagement, emphasizing the importance of leadership, organizational structures, and human resource management as factors that may operate to either enhance or inhibit employee's experience of work. The book considers the implications of work engagement for both the individual employee and the organization as a whole. To address readers' practical questions, the book provides in-depth coverage of interventions that can enhance employees' work engagement and improve management techniques."

A multilevel investigation on nursing turnover intention: the cross-level role of leader-member exchange( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Aim To analyse nursing turnover intention from the unit by using multilevel approach, examining at the individual level, the relationships between job characteristics, job satisfaction and turnover intention, and at the group level the role of leader-member exchange. Background Research on nursing turnover has given little attention to the effects of multilevel factors. Method Aggregated data of 935 nurses nested within 74 teams of four Italian hospitals were collected in 2009 via a self-administered questionnaire. Results Hierarchical linear modelling showed that job satisfaction mediated the relationship between job characteristics and intention to leave at the individual level. At the unit level, leader-member exchange was directly linked to intention to leave. Furthermore, cross-level interaction revealed that leader-member exchange moderated the relationship between job characteristics and job satisfaction. Conclusion This study supported previous research in single-level turnover studies concerning the key role of job satisfaction, providing evidence that job characteristics are important in creating motivating and satisfying jobs. At the unit-level, leader-member exchange offers an approach to understand the role of unit-specific conditions created by leaders on nurses' workplace wellbeing. Implications for nursing management This study showed that it is important for nursing managers to recognise the relevance of implementing management practices that foster healthy workplaces centred on high-quality nurse-supervisor relationships
The roles of unit leadership and nurse-physician collaboration on nursing turnover intention( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Aim To report a study of the relationship between variables at the group and individual level with nurses' intention to leave their unit. Background Workplaces are collective environments where workers constantly interact with each other. The quality of working relationship employees develop at the unit-level influences both employee outcomes and unit performance by shaping employee attitudes. Design The study was a cross-sectional design with self-administered questionnaires. Methods A questionnaire including measures of leader-member exchange and nurse-physician collaboration analysed at group-level and affective commitment and turnover intention analysed at individual level, was administered individually to 1018 nurses in five Italian hospitals. Data were collected in 2009. Results A total of 832 nurses (81·7% response rate) completed questionnaires. The results showed that affective commitment at individual level completely mediated the relationship between leader-member exchange at group-level and nursing turnover intention. Furthermore, the cross-level interaction was significant: at individual level, the nurses with high levels of individual affective commitment towards their unit showed low levels of turnover intention and this relationship was stronger when the nurse-physician collaboration at group-level was high. Conclusion This study showed the importance for organizations to implement management practices that promote both high-quality nurse-supervisor and nurse-physician relationships, because they increase nurses' identification with their units. Individual affective commitment is an important quality for retaining a workforce and good nurses' relationship at group-level relationships with both supervisors and physicians are instrumental in developing identification with the work unit. Thus, the quality of relationship among staff members is an important factor in nurses' decision to leave
