About The Book

Welcome to the emerging knowledge and practice of motivation and leadership thoughts. Social networks and virtual teams are replacing committee meetings. Knowledge is replacing infrastructure. Values and self-leadership are replacing command-and-control management. Companies are looking for employees with emotional intelligence and team competencies and not just technical smartness. Diversity and globalization have become challenges as well as competitive opportunities for organizations. Co-workers aren’t down the hall; they're at the other end of an Internet connection located somewhere else on the planet.

Motivation and Leadership, First Edition, is written in the context of these emerging workplace realities. This edition explains how emotions guide employee motivations, attitudes, and decisions; how self-concept influences employee motivation and behaviour, team cohesion, and leadership; how social networks are gaining importance as a source of personal power and organizational effectiveness; and how appreciative inquiry has become an important strategy for changing organizations. This book also presents the new reality that motivation and leadership is not just for managers; it is relevant and useful to anyone who works in and around organizations.

It is filled with examples that make knowledge more meaningful and reflect the relevance and excitement of this field. These stories about real people and organizations translate academic theories into relevant knowledge. For example, you will read how Ratan Tata, Narayana Murthy and Bill Gates applied their strategies.
