Despite how much we know about emotion, Social Functions of Emotion
and Talking About Emotion at Work uniquely examines the utility of
emotion in organizations against the ways in which both individuals
and groups talk about them. Drawing on psychological and
sociological research, this book provides groundbreaking insights
for understanding how emotions are used in the workplace. Bringing
together contributions from leading emotion researchers, this book
features chapters focusing on 10 emotions, ranging from awe to
shame. Through its exploration of the ways each emotion functions
in relation to how we talk about them, this book injects fresh
theoretical and practical momentum into how our discussions of
workplace emotion can affect how emotional events are appraised
over time and place. This, in turn influences the causes,
expressions, and consequences of emotions in the workplace. With
its novel approach, this book will be an invaluable tool for
academics researching emotion, as well as postgraduate students
working in the social sciences seeking reference material on
emotion. HR managers and general readers seeking greater insight
into emotions at work will also find this book to be a useful tool.
