Emotion and Behavior in the Workplace. Symposium 20. [Concurrent Symposium Session at AHRD Annual Conference, 2000.]
This document contains three papers from a symposium on emotion and behavior in the workplace that was conducted as part of a conference on human resource development (HRD). "Emotion Work, and Perceptions of Affective Culture in a Military Nonprofit Organization" (Jamie L. Callahan, David R. Schwandt) reports on a study of the emotion work conducted by men and women in a nonprofit organization which found that women were significantly more likely than men to say that the culture of the organization required members to be affectively neutral. "Mature Behavior in Organizations: Indications of Growth and Learning in the Workplace" (Dorothy Marcic, John Maslyn, Debbie L. Waddell) outlines a model of developmental growth of individuals in organizations that consists of four stages (egocentric, protective, compliant, and dynamism) and discusses the model's implications for creating a healthy organization that functions as a high-performing system. "Sensation-Seeking Behaviors: Predictors of Job Performance?" (Thomas G. Reio, Jr., Christopher R. Hardy) reports on a survey of 233 workers at 4 service industry companies in which path-analytic techniques demonstrated that sensation-seeking behaviors can negatively influence workplace learning, technical and interpersonal job performance, and job satisfaction. The papers contain reference sections. (MN)
