"Welcome to this sixth book in the Wiley Blackwell Industrial and Organisational Psychology series. This title in the series focus is on teams and collaborative processes at work and builds on the previous five titles in the series on leadership and change, coaching and mentoring, training and development, health and safety and positive psychology. Collaboration has for centuries been a key feature of success for any enterprise. Since the industrial revolution and rise of large-scale manufacturing of the nineteenth century, through to the development of global corporations of the twenty first century, team working and collaboration both within and across the organisation boundary is essential. Teams are the only way NASA, Google or IKEA can operate to deliver their products, services or mission. Understanding how to recruit, develop and manage teams is what this book is all about. This title is however just one of eight books in this Series totally over 200 chapters and 2 million words on Industrial and Organisational Psychology, and we believe this is the largest single contribution to the field. We believe this series differs in four ways from other titles in the field"--

Positive Organizational Scholarship is an umbrella concept used to emphasize what elevates and what is inspiring to individuals and organizations by defining the possibilities for positive deviance rather than just improving on the challenging, broken, and needlessly difficult. Just as positive psychology explores optimal individual psychological states rather than pathological ones, positive organizational scholarship focuses attention on the generative dynamics in organizations that lead to the development of human strength, foster resiliency in employees, enable healing and restoration, and cultivate extraordinary individual and organizational performance. In this landmark volume, the first major resource for scholars and professionals in the field, authors comprehensively review basic principles, empirical evidence, and ideas for future research. An ideal resource for organizational scholars, students, practitioners, human resource managers, and professional associations, this handbook covers the full spectrum of organizational theories and outcomes that define, explain, and predict the occurrence, causes, and consequences of positivity.

Pourquoi les salariés sont-ils soumis à un stress professionnel dont les effets son délétères sur leur santé et les performances des entreprises dans lesquelles ils exercent ? Ce stress relève-t-il de leur personnalité ou les conditions de travail peuvent-elles être incriminées ? Peut-il être question de stratégies d'accompagnement défectueuses ? Les salariés peuvent-ils apprendre à faire face ? Comment ? Force est de constater qu'apporter des éléments de réponses à ces questions devient un enjeu, à la fois de santé publique mais aussi économique. Les coûts engendrés par les effets du stress sur les personnels - et leurs conséquences sur l'entreprise - deviennent des enjeux financiers et humains importants : turn-over, arrêts, maladie, suicides, etc. De nombreuses tentatives et moyens, souvent empruntés au modèle médical, ont été mis en œuvre pour contrer ces effets et conséquences, mais leurs résultats demeurent insatisfaisants. Par conséquent, avoir recours à des solutions alternatives est une nécessité. Les propositions qui sont développées dans cet ouvrage ont pour objectif de chercher à identifier et à mettre en œuvre des conditions novatrices d'un bien-être sur le lieu de travail grâce à différentes orientations de la psychologie positive. Le contrôle du stress au travail n'est donc plus l'objet principal des dispositifs mis en œuvre, mais sa conséquence. Néanmoins, même si le bien-être est un thème important autour duquel gravitent de nombreuses problématiques de recherche et d'application dans le champ de la psychologie positive, limiter celle-ci à cette seule thématique serait synonyme d'un réductionnisme regrettable compte tenu de la richesse des approches que ce récent courant de la psychologie permet. Un ensemble de ces thématiques est donc présenté dans cet ouvrage et étayé par des exemples d'applications concrètes à destination des entreprises et des institutions.

Despite real progress, women remain rare enough in elite positions of power that their presence still evokes a sense of wonder. In Through the Labyrinth, Alice Eagly and Linda Carli examine why women's paths to power remain difficult to traverse. First, Eagly and Carli prove that the glass ceiling is no longer a useful metaphor and offer seven reasons why. They propose the labyrinth as a better image and explain how to navigate through it. This important and practical book addresses such critical questions as: How far have women actually come as leaders? Do stereotypes and prejudices still limit women's opportunities? Do people resist women's leadership more than men's? And, do organisations create obstacles to women who would be leaders?This book's rich analysis is founded on scientific research from psychology, economics, sociology, political science, and management. The authors ground their conclusions in that research and invoke a wealth of engaging anecdotes and personal accounts to illustrate the practical principles that emerge. With excellent leadership in short supply, no group, organisation, or nation can afford to restrict women's access to leadership roles. This book evaluates whether such restrictions are present and, when they are, what we can do to eliminate them.
