Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Changing workplace phenomena have cast the role of personality in a new and dynamic light. As work has become less structured, as organizations increasingly use teams to organize work, and as person-organization "fit" is taken more seriously, understanding individual differences and their implications for behavior at work has become more critical. This nineteenth volume in the Jossey-Bass Organizational Frontiers Series presents the latest research on personality and its influence at work. While much of the work on personality in the past decade has centered on the predictive validity of personality tests for employee selection, this book approaches the topic from a much broader perspective while still focusing on the individual level of assessment. Taking an innovative, future-oriented approach, the expert contributors examine how personality affects various outcomes and behaviors, the relationship between personality and behavior in specific work settings, emerging research streams, and more.

The authors explore, for example, the importance of happiness variables— commonly known as job satisfaction— as determinants of the choices people make and behaviors in which they engage in the workplace. They show that personality-work behavior relationships can only be understood by examining cross-level— individual, team, and organization— effects and explain the role of an individual's skill in monitoring and managing relationships in groups and organizations. And they offer new models of personality-performance relationships that will provide both theorists and practitioners with an exciting research venue for years to come.

From the Back Cover

The subject of personality has received increasing attention from industrial/organizational psychologists in both research and practice settings over the past decade. But while there is an overabundance of information related to the narrow area of personality testing and employee selection, there has been no definitive source offering a broader perspective on the overall topic of personality in the workplace. Personality and Work at last provides an in-depth examination of the role of personality in work behavior. An array of expert authors discusses the connection of personality to a wide range of outcomes beyond performance, including counterproductive behaviors, contextual performance, retaliatory behaviors, retention, learning, knowledge creation, and the process of sharing that knowledge. Throughout the book, the authors present theoretical perspectives, introduce new models and frameworks, and integrate and synthesize prior studies in ways that will stimulate future research and practice.
