Classic organizational behavior topics like team-working, motivation, and change are complemented by core critical approaches such as power, control, and wellbeing through a clear three-part structure. Students are encouraged to look beyond a descriptive approach and truly engage with the content. Examples and "Stop and Think" boxes and end-of-chapter case studies with accompanying questions show how each chapter's theoretical coverage applies to real-life business situations. Suggestions of films and novels that relate to the chapter topic present organizational behavior in context and demonstrate just how prevalent its principles are in everyday life.

The accessible style assumes no prior knowledge on the part of the reader, and the full range of themes and topics provides a rich picture of the realities of organizational behavior and work.
