Applied Organizational Communication Summary

Applied Organizational Communication: Perspectives, Principles, and Pragmatics by Thomas E. Harris

This volume bridges the gap between practicing organizational communication consultants, organizational communication courses, and the student. Combining theory with actual applied communication practices, the text is based on the integration of perspectives, principles, and pragmatics rather than case studies and insights. In-depth examination is provided for verbal and nonverbal communication, channels, networks, listening, symbolic behavior, interpersonal and small group communication, leadership, conflict management, motivation, and new communication technologies. The coverage is current, incorporating vital organizational issues such as empowering, self-directed work units, and human-computer interfaces.

*explains the impact of critical environmental influences on all levels;
*provides extensive discussion of teams, leadership, technology, listening, and interpersonal communication;
*offers current analysis, utilizing a broad base of information and research; and
*Establishes links between organizational communication and perceptions, theory, networks, and symbolic behavior.

Building on the successful foundation of the first volume, this second edition has been thoroughly revised, reflecting the current state of organizational communication theory and research. Highlights of this edition include:
*extensive topical coverage;
*integrated discussion of change, diversity, and digital age issues in all chapters;
*updated analysis of major issues and influences in organizational communication; and
*real-world examples.

Applied Organizational Communication Reviews

Review for the first edition:
"Harris...does a good job in summarizing the field and its literature."
-PR Update

Review for the first edition:
"The author astutely blends research from academic journal articles and monographs with the admonishments of how-to books, articles from trade magazines, and stories from the daily newspapers, so that we lose the sense of priority among the sources. This creative integration of academic research reports what the popular press contributes to our organizational behavioral knowledge base."
-Contemporary Psychology

"Thomas E. Harris, in Applied Organizational Communication: Principles and Pragmatics for Future Practice, 2nd ed., earnestly addresses this question by describing organizational communication as a diverse cultural process that is subject to change. He offers what appears to be an upper level undergraduate textbook that is wide-ranging, concrete...Harris accomplishes what he sets out to do. Students, scholars, and practitioners can tap into his resourceful text to begin their immersion into the realm of organizational communication study."
-American Communication Journal
