This lively and comprehensive introduction to organisational behaviour demonstrates how research into human behaviour can be applied in the workplace. It assumes no prior work experience, instead asking students to draw on everyday occurrences and complete a range of engaging activities to deepen their understanding of key topics such as personality, perception and motivation. With a focus on helping students to develop key skills useful to future employers, it offers a wealth of real-world examples, coverage of contemporary issues, and an international approach. Key features: - A global approach to OB, with 'OB in Practice' case studies and 'OB in the News ' boxes in every chapter providing examples from the UK, Ireland, the USA, Kenya, China, Europe and Asia. - A strong emphasis on career development, with a skills development section and corresponding 'Building Your Employability Skills' feature which helps prepare students for employment. - Lively 'In Reality' vignettes that demonstrate that OB is not merely 'common sense' by showing how research findings often contradict our assumptions.
