The text is written in the context of these emerging workplace realities. It explains how emotions are the foundation of employee motivation, attitudes, and decisions; how social networks generate power and shape communication patterns; how self-concept influences individual behavior, team cohesion, and leadership; and how adopting a global mindset has become an important employee characteristic in this increasingly interconnected world. This book also presents the reality that OB is t just for managers; it is relevant and valuable to anyone who works in and around organizations.
