|About the Book|
The new annual series, Research on Emotion in Organizations, presents empirical and conceptual articles at the forefront of research in this intriguing new area. Ignored for much of the previous century, the study of emotion and its antecedents and consequences in organizations is currently generating a torrent of new research. Topics include the effects on organizational behavior of mood and affective events, emotional labor and its effects, emotional intelligence, emotion and leadership, and the causes and effects of anger in the workplace. Chapters, sourced in part from the biannual International Conferences on Emotion and Worklife, represent a cross-section of cutting-edge scholarship in the field, and feature contributions from established leading scholars as well as the rising stars in the field. As such, the series will play a leading role in driving an exciting new field of research for the foreseeable future.
