To alter an organization's culture, change agents must first understand its attitudes, beliefs and assumptions. Marc Schabracq's innovative new book is based on a fresh way of thinking that deals with both the functional and structural features of cultures. Focusing on the greatest barrier to organizational change - the attitudes and assumptions of people - it offers three approaches that collectively assist the change process: changing goals through the leader; improving effectiveness through the members; and enriching assumptions through group dialogue. The scales, checklists and exercises are available online. A priceless resource for consultants and change agents, "Changing Organizational Culture" is also valuable reading for senior managers and business students interested in the change process.

Constant and rapid change, which is a characteristic of all organizations today, demands that, as workers, we develop the ability to anticipate and adapt to change whilst minimising stress and disruption. 'Survival of the fittest' is no longer the rule but rather 'survival of the fitting'. This book is about developing this ability to adapt, both at an individual and an organizational level and, in the process, developing more effective organizational and personal resources and skill.

At an individual level, the negative effects of stress are various: loss of creativity and effectiveness, loss of work motivation and pleasure, and various psychological and physical complaints.

For organizations, the effects of high levels of stress are just as concerning:
lower productivity and poorer quality
failing communication and conflict
high turnover of well-qualified employees
high costs of sick leave and work disability
negative public relations.

Stress is a valuable indicator of individual and organizational health and well being. This book outlines a 7-stage project management approach to stress which identifies both personal and organizational sources of stress and examines the different ways in which individuals characteristically react, whilst an extensive Addendum offers a range of positive interventions.

This book is intended as a textbook for HR professionals, consultants and line managers as well as individual employees interested in tackling stress in the workplace. The highly structured approach and the frequent use of Self-Assessment Questionnaires and Points for Reflection make this book a valuable teaching and self-learning tool.Above all, it is a practical guide to the problems of workplace stress.
