Описание: 'Makes fascinating reading and at the same time provides a good grounding in the study of the language of organizations, both for those who know little of the
area and for those who are looking for a comprehensive overview of the field. Overall I would warmly recommend this book as an asset for students and teachers of organizational
behaviour and for those with a general interest in the way in which language shapes our lives and work' - "Organization Studies". 'The book is extremely clear in its explanation of how
language works...The authors treat their readers as curious, intelligent and concerned to find new and powerful tools to come at the workings of organizations from a lateral and newly
illuminating perspective' - Virginia Valentine, Semiotic Solutions, London.'The authors are able to apply their personal fascination with language to give students insights into
organisational behaviour that significantly surpasses what
is normally achieved by the tired old rituals of standard organizational behaviour texts and teaching' - Tony Watson, Nottingham Trent University.
Taking issue with functional
approaches to communication, "Understanding Organizations through Language" offers a viable alternative based on 'webs of meaning'. Instead of viewing communication as a thing
that can be unproblematically controlled and managed, the authors use semiology as a theoretical bedrock to develop a new metaphor for communication. "Understanding
Organizations through Language" applies this approach to areas of interest, including: metaphor, story-telling, discourse, gender, leadership and electronic communication.Spanning the
gap between highly theoretical organization studies texts and highly prescriptive communication texts, the book talks to the reader in a sophisticated yet approachable style.
This style is complemented by a range of examples, activities and mini case studies. Also included are chapter summaries and further reading suggestions, making this a useful text for
both academics and students. Advanced undergraduates and postgraduates will utilize this book for any course dealing with communication, particularly courses in HRM and

Описание: Aspiring and seasoned leaders have been trained to manage their leadership communication in many important ways: how they provide feedback and motivate employees, how they convey the strategy for their organization, how they interact with major clients or partners. And yet, all their efforts to communicate effectively can be derailed by even the smallest nonverbal gestures such as the way they sit in a business meeting or stand at the podium at a speaking engagement or the amount of eye contact they give in a one-on-one meeting. Despite an abundance of leadership development programs and books that focus on effective communication, there's little understanding of how nonverbal communication affects positively or negatively a leaders success. In The Silent Language of Leadership, Carol Kinsey Goman explains that personal space, physical gestures, posture, facial expressions, and eye contact communicate louder than words and, thus, can be used strategically to help leaders manage, motivate, lead global teams, and communicate clearly in the digital age. Drawing on compelling psychological and neuroscience research, she shows leaders how to adjust their body language for maximum effect and offers advice for global business leaders. Some of the advice includes: Avoid shallow breathing while giving a pep talk to employees. Research shows that a shallow breather can make an entire room feel anxious and thus lead listeners to not believe the speaker. When meeting with employees in your organization with whom you don't interact often, give them an eyebrow flash the rapid raising of the inside corners of the eyebrow. This signal is used mostly involuntarily, for example, when you run into someone you know on the street. But it is also a powerful way to subtly show recognition and interest in someone. At the next business dinner or face-to-face meeting, find a table that allows you to sit at right angles to each other. Research shows that people are more interactive when seated at right angles that when straight across from each other. Next time you're leading a meeting, notice if any audience members cover or block their mouths, which usually indicates skepticism. If you see this gesture, stop talking and address their disbelief: I know some of you have doubts about what I've just said, or You look skeptical. Can you tell me what your concerns are? Profound changes are shaking up our lives and the kind of leaders the world seeks: sharp economic swings, increasing global competitiveness, new technologies, social and cultural shifts, and the reshaping of our organizations. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, leaders need every tool available including nonverbal skills to improve their credibility and stay ahead of the curve.
