Study Guide:  Exam 2 Part 2 COM 250: Spring 2009 Emotion Processes:  Chapter 11 1. What is bounded emotionality?   This asks us to begin looking at emotional life as a central focus of organizational  research and to consider the ways in which paying attention to emotion might lead to  new ways of understanding the workplace How does this concept move us away from considering organizations and  organizational processes as inherently rational? It is thought that we manage conflict by thinking logically and making decisions by  weighing pros and cons, so this new concept moves us away from this. Also steers us  away from thinking that jobs as consisting of tasks and the cognitive functions  required for those tasks. 2. Emotional Labor     =  Workers display certain feelings in order to satisfy  organizational role expectations.  Example:Dr or Nurse communicating care  Example: Disneyland Surface acting:  physical, facial expressions Deep acting:  feeling empathy because you relate 3 Generalizations      ON      Emotional labor:     It is seen as a way to increase the success and profits of org.  Most research explores emotion that is explicitly controlled  through training and employee manuals. Most research addresses emotional displays that are created  through deep or surface ACTING, not authentic expressions of  emotion.   3. Four Aspects of workplace relationships  that create potential  for intense emotions  in organizations. 1) The tension between the public and private in workplace relationships Happy funny co-workers. We escape public sphere=Emotional retreat 2)Relational networks and emotional buzzing Emotional buzzing =concept that emotions are contagious -     3) Conflicting allegiances =emotional norms, emotions are useful 4)Emotional rights and obligations at work

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
