Handbook of Chinese Organizational Behavior

Integrating Theory, Research and Practice

Research Handbooks in Business and Management series

Edited by Xu Huang and Michael Harris Bond, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong

This comprehensive Handbook explores limitations and challenges arising from attempts to develop indigenous theories and constructs applicable to Chinese social reality. Key contributors integrate the literature in their topic areas, providing directions for pushing forward the frontiers of research into a more culturally sensitive and powerful representation of Chinese organizational behavior. Areas examined include emotional intelligence, creativity and motivation, leadership, team conflicts, trust, power and business ethics. Experienced practitioner input is included.

‘The book serves us by collecting and examining an enormous amount of organizational studies that address management, leadership, organizational development and psychology. . . Bravo to the ground staff for the enormous amount of preparatory work and guidance they have provided in this volume, enabling and encouraging us to launch out on new explorations.’
– George Simons, Dialogin

‘[T]he Handbook of Chinese Organizational Behavior, edited by Xu Huang and Michael Harris Bond, is among the best books on Chinese organizational behavior that I have read in recent years. It is a timely book, filling the huge gap between management practice and research in Chinese societies.’
– Danny Wedding, PsycCritiques

‘This book is essential study for those travelling in that direction.’
– Romie Frederik Littrell, Journal of International Business
