Workplace Bullying: What we know, who is to blame and what can we do?
Workplace bullying is an area that has attracted significant press attention throughout the last decade. A variety of well publicized surveys have revealed that this is an issue endemic in working life in Britain; and, at a conservative estimate, over half the working population can expect to experience bullying at work (either directly by being bullied, or through witnessing it) at some stage in their careers. This is now seen to be a disturbing event, with something like a fifth of witnesses and a quarter of direct targets leaving their organizations. This serious damage to individuals has been accorded little direct research in Britain, although it has resulted in court cases brought under health and safety and equal opportunities legislation. The recognition of the problem and the emergence of court cases, have both served to focus employers on the need to deal with the issue. The recent strike vote at Ford in Dagenham, asking the employer to enforce existing anti-harassment policies, highlights the fact that having paper policies is not enough. Workplace Bullying is derived from the largest survey ever carried out on workplace bullying, supported by the CBI, TUC, Federation of Small Businesses, IPD, and the HSE among others. This study covered 5,500 people, but the book goes beyond it to explore all the issues associated with what is becoming a major issue in organizations.

Managing People at Work
Managing People at Work is a comprehensive guide to the latest theory and research in the area of industrial and organizational psychology. Written for managers as well as business students, it presents easily understood concepts without using technical business jargon. The book focuses on both day-to-day and strategic problems in areas such as management styles, group decision making and organizational change. Information is enhanced with case studies, questionnaires, and exercises throughout the book. HR Magazine Managing People at Work is both a practical guide for managers and a valuable introduction to management issues for students in business, professional, and technical programs. Comprehensive in scope but easily accessible to a wide audience, the volume distills the latest theory and research in industrial and organizational psychology, presenting workable concepts and techniques with a minimum of jargon. The authors place particular emphasis on helping managers deal successfully with day-to-day and strategic problems in the workplace, examining issues such as appropriate management styles, group decision-making, organizational change, and more. Exercises, case studies, and questionnaires are included throughout to help managers further develop their skills. Divided into three principal parts, the volume moves from the micro aspects of managing people to the macro or organizational aspects of people management. In the first section, the authors concentrate on dealing with individuals by exploring personality and individual differences, motivation, leadership potential, and management styles. Part Two focuses on people working in groups and addresses questions about the differences between group and individual decision making, the effects of group decision making processes on individual motivation, the causes of intergroup conflict, and the ways in which conflict can be minimized. Organizational problems and the effects of organizational change are treated in Part Three, while a final chapter considers an important, yet usually neglected aspect of management: how to manage your boss. Numerous explanatory figures and tables accompany the text.

Teachers Under Pressure: Stress in the Teaching Profession
Our education system has undergone a process of enormous and rapid change, and all too often teachers have found that insufficient support has been offered to help them cope with this. As a result, most teachers now find that they experience stress of one sort or another at some point during their careers. As a direct reaction to this, the National Association of Schoolmasters and Union of Women Teachers (NASUWT) have commissioned a comprehensive study of the issue of teacher stress. This book reports on the findings of that study, and the implications this has not only for teachers, but also for the pupils they teach. Cary Cooper and Cheryl Travers' book: * helps to identify which teachers are currently at risk of stress * explores how teacher's problems vary according to where they work, their grade, whether they are male or female and the age range they teach * suggests ways in which the problems of teachers can be helped * suggests preventative action to minimise stress and maximise educational experience

Managing Executive Health: Personal and Corporate Strategies for Sustained Success
The health of managers, executives, and business leaders has a massive impact on the performance and prospects of modern organizations. If health problems are not tackled, people become less productive, less effective, and more destructive. It is clear that business leaders and human resource professionals cannot afford to ignore the impact of work-related health issues on company performance. Yet even acknowledging this fact still leaves us with a choice over how to proceed. Should we try to minimize those risks that typically lead to health problems or seek to strengthen executive health? While recognising that identifying health risks is the first step in any preventive health program, Managing Executive Health argues for a positive approach, which emphasizes physical vigour, psychological well-being, spiritual vitality, and ethical integrity. Key issues are illustrated throughout with case studies of high-profile figures from the worlds of business and politics.

Organizations and the Psychological Contract: Managing People at Work
Contracts in employment are of two kinds: the formal, written contract and the equally important, informal and unwritten psychological contract-how people think they should be treated. Both involve rights, obligations and expectations on the part of the employer and the employee, and a breach in one can have important effects on the other. For example, how people feel they are being treated by the organization can affect their perception of their levels of pay. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues in the organizational context: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses.

As well as undertaking research into many aspects of organizational life, the authors have many years' experience as consultants, acting for industrial and commercial organizations in all sectors of the economy.

Organizations and the Psychological Contract: Managing People at Work
Contracts in employment are of two kinds: the formal, written contract and the equally important, informal and unwritten psychological contract-how people think they should be treated. Both involve rights, obligations and expectations on the part of the employer and the employee, and a breach in one can have important effects on the other. For example, how people feel they are being treated by the organization can affect their perception of their levels of pay. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses. Organizations and the Psychological Contract has two main aims in exploring these issues in the organizational context: to act as a handbook for practicing managers, and as a basic text in management courses. Relevant theories are explained and developed using practical examples, self-assessment exercises, and case studies. This is a revised and much expanded version of Managing People at Work, with the addition of chapters on Selection and Career Development, Understanding and Coping with Change, Empowerment and Self-Management, and the Behavioural Approach to Motivation. As well as undertaking research into many aspects of organizational life, the authors have many years' experience as consultants, acting for industrial and commercial organizations in all sectors of the economy.

De-stressing Doctors: A Self-management Guide
In a health care climate where patients are ever more demanding and resources increasingly difficult to access, it is a truism that stress is an inevitable part of the profession of the medical practitioner. Stressed doctors become ill and dissatisfied, and in consequence patients may also suffer. Eliminating a source of stress is acknowledged as the most effective approach to stress control, but this is not always a realistic option for doctors. This invaluable guide shows doctors how to effectively manage their stress, before they become distressed. The authors also acknowledge that doctors do not work in a social vacuum, and address the management, business and social positions doctors are expected to fulfill, in addition to their clinical role. De-stressing Doctors: a Self-management Guide will help every doctor to become their own stress manager by integrating stress control techniques into the day-to-day profession of medical practitioner.

Occupational Health Psychology: The Challenge of Workplace Stress
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 qualityfailing communication and conflicthigh turnover of well-qualified employeeshigh costs of sick leave and work disabilitynegative 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.
