Traditional and Emerging Perspectives on Workplace Relationships
- Patricia M. Sias - University of Arizona, USA
"Organizing Relationships makes a contribution to the discipline in its treatment of this area from multiple perspectives, in its deliberate engagement/suggestions of future research directions, and its functional purpose of bringing together extant research on this important topic in a coherent and organized way. It adds cumulatively to our knowledge of organizational communication and relationships, it fits within the horizon of the established parameters of our field while opening new areas for engagement, and, moreover, it is a very interesting read. It will, no doubt, become a touchstone for the field of organizational communication."
"This book represents an important step to a relational approach to organizational behavior (communication) by pulling together many different areas/types of relationships. It will be a ‘must’ book to anyone who teaches relationships in organization or broadly relational/applied organizational communication."
Not the kind of textbook I was looking for
I considered the theoretical level of this book too high for a non-university course. However, the book has very interesting points of view, which is most inspiring for the lecturer. I highly recommend for reading.
A very easy to read and practical text which will be ideal for our undergraduate and postgraduate students
