"The flourishing positive scholarship movement attempts to shift from models that focus on 'what is wrong' to 'what is right'. Exploring Positive Relationships at Work adds a critical new area of inquiry to this movement. Weaving together different disciplines, levels of analysis and perspectives, this book will change the way we think about relationships in organizational life." -- Leslie Perlow, Harvard Business School "This book brings together leading scholars working at the forefront of efforts to develop a positive psychology of organizational behavior. It contains an intellectually exciting and impressively diverse collection focusing on the crucial but neglected role positive relationships play in organizational life. This is one of those essential volumes that belongs on the shelf of every organizational theorist interested in where the field is going and, more importantly, where it should be going."-- Roderick M. Kramer, William R. Kimball Professor of Organizational Behavior, Stanford Graduate School of Business 'Dutton and Ragins have compiled a very good collection of chapters that will likely facilitate putting the study of positive relationships at work on the research map... Each of the chapters is well written, on point, and clearly linked to positive relationships at work... it is applicable to virtually anyone whose work involves interacting with other people.' - Steven M. Elias, PsycCRITIQUES
