Coming Soon! Second Edition of
Essentials of Organizational Behavior
For the second edition, I retained the features that have made Essentials of Organizational Behavior: An Evidence-Based Approach successful in its first edition, while updating with current research and strengthening the evidence-based approach.
As in the last edition, all the chapters start with a scenario that features research on an interesting real-world problem based on research or practice. The Leadership Implications at the end of each chapter have been retained and expanded. The section on Critical Thinking has been expanded in Chapter 1 and Critical Thinking Questions have been retained and expanded in the second edition. Best Practices and Research in Action boxes have been retained as features and new ones have been added for new chapters under the new reorganization of the textbook. Both instructors and students responded positively to the Toolkit Activities and Self-Assessments, and additional Toolkit items have been added. Based upon feedback from instructors (particularly in the online environment), Discussion Questions have been added for all Toolkit Activities, Case Studies, and Self-Assessments. All of the Cases have been either replaced or expanded in length. A new feature for 2e is that each Chapter will have 1 or 2 longer cases (3000-5000 words) selected from SAGE business cases (these cases are provided on the Instructor Resources website).
