Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0745651399, Hardcover)

Employees often disagree with workplace policies and practices, leaving few workplaces unaffected by organizational dissent. While disagreement persists in most contemporary organizations, how employees express dissent at work and how their respective organizations respond to it vary widely.

Through the use of case studies, first-person accounts, current examples, conceptual models, and scholarly findings this work offers a comprehensive treatment of organizational dissent. Readers will find a sensible balance between theoretical considerations and practical applications.

Theoretical considerations include:

how dissent fits within classical and contemporary organizational communication approachesdissent's relationship to, yet distinctiveness from, related organizational concepts like conflict, resistance, and voiceexplanations for why employees express dissent and how they make sense of itthe relationship between organizational dissent and ethics

Practical applications encompass:

recommendations for employees expressing dissent and managers responding to itconsideration of the range of events that trigger dissentstrategies employees use to express dissent and tools organizations can apply to solicit it effectivelythe unique challenges and benefits associated with expressing dissent to management

The book's specific focus and engaged voice provide students, scholars, and practitioners with a deeper understanding of dissent as an important aspect of workplace communication.
