As a discipline that studies how people think, feel and behave in social situations, social psychology offers key insights into the interpersonal dynamics of organizations. It draws from psychology, sociology, economics and anthropology to explore how people make decisions every day. In his new book, Social Psychology and Organizations (Routledge Academic), Kellogg Professor J. Keith Murnighan surveys the latest thinking in this field. Chapters address leadership, power, diversity, conflict and decision making - all critical to running organizations, be they government agencies, family businesses, nonprofits or global multinationals.
