Colquitt/Gellatly Organizational Behaviour: Improving Performance and Commitment in the Workplace, Second Canadian Edition, takes a unique, pop-cultural approach, versus the traditional, old-school one. This is a different kind of organizational behaviour text, one that re-examines how OB should be taught by using an innovative integrative model to link core OB topics back to their ultimate impact on job performance and commitment. Colquitt/Gellatly speaks to students in a language they understand through examples that are engaging and relevant. Solidly based in contemporary research but written in a conversational style, Colquitt/Gellatly has found a way to bring organizational behaviour to students without sacrificing academic rigour or the theoretical foundations behind contemporary OB topics. Colquitt/Gellatly Organizational Behaviour, Second Canadian Edition, builds on the success of the first edition. The integrative model has been revised, restructuring the text into four parts and allowing for the seamless integration of some key topics such as communication, negotiation, diversity, and change. The result is a stronger text, which retains its unique focus on performance on commitment, while ensuring that all the key OB topics are covered effectively. This edition once again provides students and instructors with a friendly, accessible text grounded in contemporary theories and models that teach the universal applicability of organizational behaviour while remaining directly and deeply linked to the Canadian experience.
