The Wiley Advantage

  • Modular approach: The text features self-contained sections within chapters, for maximum teaching flexibility. Each module ends with point summaries and key terms.
  • Cutting-edge topics and research coverage: Includes the Five Factor Theory of Personality, emotional intelligence, culture and emotions, genetics and job satisfaction, achieving balance between work and non-work, stress and violence, bullying, measuring motivation, integrity testing, entrepreneurship, computer-based assessment, male vs. female leaders, cross cultural teams, and more.
  • Emphasis on critical thinking: One of the goals of this book is to show how many of the broad principles of I-O psychology can be applied in situations at work.  Thus, the text emphasizes critical thinking, and the Instructor’s Manual includes critical thinking questions that can be used inside or outside of class to help students to think about situations in the workplace and apply the principles and concepts they've learned.
