'The editors have assembled an impressive cast of scholars from the very forefront of research on social identity and social categorization processes. These scholars have turned their collective gaze on the domain of work, mining rich insights on topics ranging from motivation to diversity and group decision-making to leadership. The result is a set of very penetrating and elegantly rendered essays that are exceptionally well-grounded in the social identity and social categorization literatures. This book is simply a must for organizational scholars and students alike.' - Blake Ashforth, Arizona State University
Social identity research is very much on the ascendancy, particularly in the field of organizational psychology. Reflecting this fact, this volume contains chapters from researchers at the cutting edge of these developments and presents findings from a range of key international research programmes. Its 17 chapters are organized into 6 sections dealing in turn with the nature of identity, motivation and performance, communication and decision-making, leadership and authority, change and change management, and perceiving and responding to inequity. In the process the chapters address a broad range of topical issues including diversity, discrimination, goal-setting, groupthink, mergers, negotiation, and culture. Moreover, while presenting a compelling framework for theoretical advance in each of these areas, the chapters also discuss wide-ranging issues of practical intervention and application. The result is a text that will be essential reading for students and researchers in social and organizational psychology, as well as many others who are interested in social identity and group behaviour at work.
