Emotions in Organizational Behavior


The study of emotions in organizational settings is a subfield within the discipline of organizational behavior (OB), which Ricky W. Griffin defines as “the study of human behavior in organizational settings, of the interface between human behavior and the organization, and of the organization itself” (see the Oxford Bibliographies article Organizational Behavior). As is the case with OB, emotion research is multidisciplinary, including influences from psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, industrial engineering, and philosophy. In this bibliography the term “emotion” is used as a catchall, covering discrete emotion (visceral reaction to environmental events), mood (longer-term visceral states, not necessarily related to environmental events), affect (positive or negative emotions or moods, varying on dimensions of valence and intensity), and feelings (subjective experience of emotions or moods).
