We are pleased to feature in this edition the ideas, insights, and scholarly expertise of Mary Uhl-Bien. Mary brings extensive knowledge of leadership and relational pro- cesses in OB. She has received awards for her research, and is currently serving in the OB Division Chair track in the Academy of Management. She places deep value on rigor and relevance in OB, which she accomplishes by engaging in cutting edge research conducted through strong partnerships between scholars and practitioners.
Along with Mary, John Schermerhorn continues to play a senior role in content, design, and pedagogy, while Dick Osborn focuses his attention on updating macro themes. Topics in the book are easily assigned in any order based on instructor preferences. There are many options available for courses of different types, lengths, and meeting schedules, including online and distance learning formats. It all depends on what fits best with your course design, learning approaches, and class session objectives.
Instructors can select core OB topics and themes while moving among chapters organized in four parts—Individual Behavior and Performance, Teams and Teamwork, Influence Processes and Leadership, and Organizational Context. In this edition you will see timely updates to all chapters as well as extensive revisions to enhance the discussion of interpersonal and relational processes and streamline the macro treatment.
Look for the following updates and special themes in Organizational Behavior, 13th edition. We place context front and center as a key theme throughout the book. Students are continually reminded to think about organizational behavior as it occurs in a dynamic and ever changing world.
Positive relationships are essential building blocks for effective organizations, but this topic is often missed in OB texts. We draw from research to describe the importance of interpersonal relationships in OB, while giving special emphasis to relationship-building processes relative to communication, power, and leadership. Along with expanded focus on relationships, this edition pushes beyond the limits of hierarchical thinking and recognizes we live in an increasingly viii interconnected and collaborative world.
The changing nature of organizational. Making sense of and building skills to succeed in this collab- orative context are mainstream themes for the book. Organizations need effective communicators. The discussion of communication has been refreshed to incorporate research on voice, silence, feed- back-giving and feedback-seeking. We also expand coverage of supportive commu- nication principles and how to use communication to build and maintain effective relationships. A key goal is helping students understand how they can overcome problems of avoidance in communication.
Our approach to the leadership process material has been substantially updated to reflect emerging trends in leadership research in reaction to chang- ing leadership environments. We recognize leadership as a process and not just a position or an individual behavior. We bring in the latest research on identity, followership, relational leadership, and collective leadership. And, the overview of trait, behavioral, and contingency approaches to leadership is extended to include a discussion of complexity leadership and ethics.
We provide a more balanced view of both positive and negative aspects of power and politics. New findings from network theory, research on perceptions of politics and political skills, and the nature of political climates provide students with a broad-based and practical understanding of how power and politics issues matter to them.
Every chapter opens with a subtitle and photograph that help students identify with the content right from the beginning. This is followed by the Key Point conveyed in a short smart-phone sized message.
Major chapter headings are listed in Chapter At a Glance. Chapter content begins with each major heading linked with a Learning Roadmap which identifies major subheads for the section. The first step to making that possible is for students to read and study assigned materials outside of class. When they come to class prepared, the instructor has many more options for engagement.
The organization and content of Organizational Behavior, 13th Edition, coupled with the power of the WileyPLUS online learning environment help greatly in this regard. Success in flipping the classroom also requires a variety of discussion activities, projects, and quick-hitting experiences that turn class time into engaged learning time.
The following chapter features are not only interesting to readers; they are also prompts and frames that can be used for flipped classroom activities and discussions, and for individual and team assignments. Exam- ples include: Examples include: Weighing Alternative Interests. Sample topics include—interactional justice, racial bias, social loafing, demographic faultlines, and workplace identities.
The end-of-text OB Skills Workbook has become a hallmark feature of the textbook, and it has been updated and expanded for the new edition. The four sections in the new updated workbook that offer many ways to extend the OB learning experience in creative and helpful ways. All items have chapter assignment recommendations.

Introducing 1 Organizational Behavior The Key Point People in all of their rich diversity are the basic building blocks of organizations. If you pause to consider the vast effects of our recent economic and social turmoil. Learning about OB can help you build solid job skills and expand your potential for career success in the dynamic. This is a time in which the normal com- plexities of human behavior in organizations are ramped up by an environment of con- stant change and the growing influence of social technology.
Think OB and career success! Think OB and overall life satisfac- tion! The real importance of OB boils down to how it helps you develop the skills needed for a successful career in our ever-changing world.
Preferred jobs are still hard to come by for new college graduates. It is an academic discipline devoted to understanding individ- in organizations. Take the OB relevance test. This text helps you bridge the gap between OB as a body of knowledge and OB as a pathway to career and life success. Our book is about people. Organizational behavior OB is the study of human the study of human behavior behavior in organizations. How prepared are you to excel in jobs with fashion-forward titles like these?

In this challenging era. Smart which knowledge and skills are shared to solve real and workforces are built through connections activated by relational skills and social complex problems.
The following changes in what people expect and value in terms of human behavior in organizations are of special interest in the study of OB. There is no doubt that success with our life and career goals requires ongoing learning and continuous attention to new trends.
Highly publicized scandals involving unethical and illegal practices prompt concerns for ethical behavior in the workplace. They are everyday leaders who are exceptionally career test. The They bring social technology together with face-to-face question is this: Are you ready to jump in and let OB interactions to harness the powers of knowledge.
In other words. In this environment. And it is about how our complex ever-changing environment requires people and organizations to continuously adapt and improve in the quest for promising futures. More people now work as independent contractors and freelancers who shift among employers rather than hold full-time jobs.
This led to research dealing with individual attitudes. How do we learn how to integrate multigenerational workforces around common goals and high performance expectations? How do we gain solid insights into how these and other important issues of human behavior play out in day-to-day organizational practice?
The answer is found in one word: Balance of work and nonwork responsibilities is a top-priority value. Decision making and goal setting increasingly give attention to the environment. As new technologies—including social media— penetrate the workplace.
The new generation is less tolerant of hierarchy. New pressures and demands mean organizations can no longer rely on just managers for leadership. Leadership is valued from all members. Success is earned through knowledge. New economy jobs require special skill sets and a continuous development. Organizational behavior then emerged as a scholarly discipline devoted to scientific understanding of individuals and groups in organizations.
Issues of sustainability are top priorities. Traditional hierarchical structures and practices are being replaced by shared leadership. Although the early focus was on physical working conditions. Scientific Foundations of Organizational Behavior More than a century ago. OB scholars often propose and test models—simplified views of reality that attempt to Models are simplified views identify major factors and forces underlying real-world phenomena.
Job satisfaction independent variable influences. Figure 1. The ultimate goal of OB is to improve the performance of people. These research methods are based on scientific thinking. For example. This means 1 the process of data collection is controlled and systematic. As you look at the above model. What makes OB unique is its desire to integrate the diverse insights of these other disciplines and apply them to real-world organizational problems and opportunities.
Think also about job satisfaction as a dependent variable in its own right.

These models link of reality that attempt to independent variables—presumed causes—with dependent variables—outcomes of explain real-world phenomena. What indepen- dent variables do you believe might explain whether satisfaction will be high or low for someone doing a service job.
Quest for Evidence An essential responsibility of any science is to create and test models that offer evidence-based foundations for decision making and action. In fact. Her book. As you might expect. OB recognizes that behavior and practices Contingency thinking seeks must be tailored to fit the exact nature of each situation—this is called contingency ways to meet the needs of thinking.
Contingency Thinking Rather than assuming that there is one best or universal answer to questions such as those just posed. Her answer is that we can Focus on Application The science of organizational behavior focuses on applica- tions that can make a real difference in how organizations and people in them perform. Stated a bit differently. Some examples of the many practical research questions addressed by the discipline of OB and reviewed in this book are: What causes unethical and socially irresponsible behavior by people in organiza- tions?

Complex adaptive systems Organizations are also complex adaptive systems. Regulators want compliance with laws. Customers want value pricing and high- quality products.

Women also have higher rates of absenteeism than men do. A less likeable B more hostile C inadequate supervisors D all of the above E none of the above Answer: D Women who find success in male dominated areas still deal with negative stereotypes regarding their behavior; however, recent studies have shown that these perceptions can be countered by interpersonal skills.
C Research has shown that sexual harassment is the most overt form of discrimination and can lead to lower levels of organizational commitment and higher turnover rates.
A The United States Bureau of the Census classifies individuals according to seven broad racial categories: A We define race in this book as the biological heritage people use to identify themselves; ethnicity is the additional set of cultural characteristics that often overlaps with race.
A African Americans and Hispanics also have lower turnover rates than Whites. B African Americans and Hispanics perceive discrimination to be more prevalent in the workplace. C Substantial racial differences exist in attitudes toward affirmative action, with African Americans approving of such programs to a greater degree than Whites.
D African Americans generally fare worse than Whites in employment decisions. E Individuals tend to slightly favor colleagues of their own race in performance evaluations, promotion decisions, and pay raises. A In employment settings, individuals tend to slightly favor colleagues of their own race in performance evaluations, promotion decisions, and pay raises.
Substantial racial differences exist in attitudes toward affirmative action, with African Americans approving of such programs to a greater degree than Whites.
This difference may reflect the fact that African Americans and Hispanics perceive discrimination to be more prevalent in the workplace. African Americans generally fare worse than Whites in employment decisions. African Americans and Hispanics also have higher turnover rates than Whites. A psychiatric disabilities B physical disabilities C learning disabilities D medical disabilities E speech and language disabilities Answer: A One of the most controversial aspects of the ADA is the provision that requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for people with psychiatric disabilities.
Most people have very strong biases against those with mental illnesses, who may be therefore reluctant to disclose this information to employers. A The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission classifies a person as disabled who has any physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Examples include missing limbs, seizure disorder, Down syndrome, deafness, schizophrenia, alcoholism, diabetes, and chronic back pain.
A Workers with disabilities receive higher performance evaluations, whether or not the evaluations would be considered as objective. B Despite higher performance ratings, individuals with disabilities tend to encounter lower performance expectations and are less likely to be hired. C For many employers, disability is a value imperative—they believe they must hire disabled workers for legal or ethical outcomes.
D Mental disabilities may impair performance more than physical disabilities. E Individuals with such common mental health issues as depression and anxiety are significantly more likely to be absent from work.
C For many employers, diversity is a value imperative—they believe they must increase the diversity of their workforce for legal or ethical reasons. A The longer a person is in a job, the less likely she is to quit.
Moreover, consistent with research suggesting past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior, evidence indicates tenure at an employee's previous job is a powerful predictor of that employee's future turnover. E Each of the situations could in fact be a faith-based issue dependent upon the religion and the individual.
Recently there has been an increase in the number of religious discrimination claims, perhaps caused by misperceptions. D As we use the term, ability is an individual's current capacity to perform the various tasks in a job. Overall abilities are essentially made up of two sets of factors: D Research on hundreds of jobs has identified nine basic abilities needed in the performance of physical tasks.
These are dynamic strength, trunk strength, static strength, explosive strength, extent flexibility, dynamic flexibility, body coordination, balance, and stamina. Perceptual speed is an intellectual ability. These fields continue to lack diversity even though their client base has grown ethnically.
Variations in surface-level biological characteristics like age, gender, race, disability, and tenure may be the basis for discrimination against classes of employees. Most studies do show an inverse relationship between older workers and absenteeism, but close examination finds it is partially a function of whether the absence is avoidable or unavoidable. However, they have equal rates of unavoidable absence, such as sickness absences.
Evidence from a study of nearly , professional employees indicates significant differences, with women more likely to turn over than men. There are no statistically significant differences between African Americans and Whites in observed absence rates, applied social skills at work, or accident rates.
With the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA in , representation of individuals with disabilities in the United States workforce rapidly increased. United States federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against employers based on their religion, with very few exceptions.
The research relating tenure to absence is quite straightforward. Studies consistently show seniority to be negatively related to absenteeism. Ability is an individual's current capacity to perform the various tasks in a job.
Answers to this will vary but will focus on age, gender, race, disability, or length of service. E Intellectual abilities are abilities needed to perform mental activities—thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. A verbal comprehension B spatial visualization C balance D number aptitude E perceptual speed Answer: C The seven most frequently cited dimensions making up intellectual abilities are number aptitude, verbal comprehension, perceptual speed, inductive reasoning, deductive reasoning, spatial visualization, and memory.
Which of the following dimensions of intellectual ability does her skill reflect? A number aptitude B perceptual speed C spatial visualization D deductive reasoning E inductive reasoning Answer: A Number aptitude is the ability to do speedy and accurate arithmetic. Application LO: Which of the following dimensions of intellectual ability does his skill reflect? A spatial visualization B deductive reasoning C inductive reasoning D verbal comprehension E perceptual speed Answer: D Verbal comprehension is the ability to understand what is read or heard and the relationship of words to each other.
D Perceptual speed is the ability to identify visual similarities and differences quickly and accurately. Her job requires her to visualize various positions of objects in space. Which of the following dimensions of intellectual ability does this skill accurately refer to?
A spatial visualization B memory C deductive reasoning D perceptual speed E inductive reasoning Answer: A Spatial visualization is the ability to imagine how an object would look if its position in space were changed.
C Inductive reasoning is the ability to identify a logical sequence in a problem and then solve the problem. C Spatial visualization is the ability to imagine how an object would look if its position in space were changed. He addresses all his customers by their first names.
A memory B inductive reasoning C deductive reasoning D spatial visualization E perceptual speed Answer: A Memory is the ability to retain and recall past experiences. Her job requires her to forecast demand for various companies' stocks and shares for various time periods.
A verbal comprehension B memory C inductive reasoning D spatial visualization E perceptual speed Answer: C Deductive reasoning is the ability to use logic and assess the implications of an argument. A perceptual speed B verbal comprehension C deductive reasoning D memory E spatial visualization Answer: E The most widely used intelligence test in hiring decisions takes only 12 minutes to complete. It's the Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test. There are different forms, and each has 50 questions.
A Most of the companies using the Wonderlic stop using other hiring tools, such as application forms or interviews. D It has different forms and each has 50 questions. E More companies are using the Wonderlic in hiring decisions. A The companies don't give up other hiring tools, such as application forms or interviews.
Rather, they add the Wonderlic for its ability to provide valid data on applicants' intelligence levels. List and describe the seven dimensions that make up intellectual abilities. Intellectual abilities are abilities needed to perform mental activities—thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Most societies place a high value on intelligence, and for good reason. Intelligence quotient IQ tests, for example, are designed to ascertain a person's general intellectual abilities.
The seven most frequently cited dimensions making up intellectual abilities are number aptitude ability to do speedy and accurate arithmetic , verbal comprehension ability to understand what is read or heard and the relationship of words to each other , perceptual speed ability to identify visual similarities and differences quickly and accurately , inductive reasoning ability to identify a logical sequence in a problem and then solve the problem , deductive reasoning ability to use logic and assess the implications of an argument , spatial visualization ability to imagine how an object would look if its position in space were changed , and memory ability to retain and recall past experiences.
Smart people generally earn more money and attain higher levels of education. They are also more likely to emerge as leaders of groups. Jobs differ in the demands they place on intellectual abilities. The more complex a job in terms of information-processing demands, the more general intelligence and verbal abilities will be necessary to perform successfully. Interestingly, although intelligence is a big help in performing a job well, it doesn't make people happier or more satisfied with their jobs.
The correlation between intelligence and job satisfaction is about zero. Research suggests that although intelligent people perform better and tend to have more interesting jobs, they are also more critical when evaluating their job conditions. Thus, smart people have it better, but they also expect more. B Dynamic strength is the ability to exert muscular force repeatedly or continuously over time.
BEHAVIOR THIRTEENTH EDITION
A Static strength is the ability to exert force against external objects. C Explosive strength is the ability to expend a maximum of energy in one or a series of explosive acts. D Extent flexibility is the ability to move the trunk and back muscles as far as possible.
B Dynamic flexibility is the ability to make rapid, repeated flexing movements. B Body coordination is the ability to coordinate the simultaneous actions of different parts of the body. C Balance is the ability to maintain equilibrium despite forces pulling off balance. A Stamina is the ability to continue maximum effort requiring prolonged effort over time.
Though designed to measure general cognitive ability, external factors can always influence the results of any given assessment.
Though the changing nature of work suggests intellectual abilities are increasingly important for many jobs, physical abilities have been and will remain valuable.
Physical abilities are made up of nine basic abilities needed in the performance of physical tasks. Extent flexibility and dynamic flexibility are flexibility factors forming part of physical abilities. Extent flexibility refers to the ability to move the trunk and back muscles as far as possible. Dynamic flexibility refers to the ability to make rapid, repeated flexing movements.Making sense of and building skills to succeed in this collab- orative context are mainstream themes for the book.
