The emotional link: Developing a theoretical map of emotional contagion processes across multiple organizational levels. Emotional contagion processes influence a wide range of organizational and leadership outcomes. In this session, I review emotional contagion research across multiple levels of analysis and explain how this process can be managed by leaders. I first discuss the neurological processes that give rise to implicit and explicit forms of emotional contagion, and then review empirical evidence on how emotional contagion processes impact leadership outcomes at the interpersonal, group and organizational levels.

I then propose a model linking emotional contagion processes across these levels. Ultimately, emotional contagion processes are implicated as 'emotional links' across multiple levels in organizations and organizational leadership. Ozyegin University, Turkey; 3. Implications will be discussed. The design of offices, workspaces, and workstations involves more than just aesthetics or where the printer is located.
While many are aware of basic recommendations to sit up straight and use chairs that support our lower backs, few know the extent of injury and loss of productivity that can be caused by improperly fitted or designed workstations. Equally fascinating is studies suggesting that music may alter levels of cytokine, serotonin, dopamine, and beta endorphin levels.
Recent technological advances in brain imaging has also shown that music activates various parts of the brain and there are clear anatomical differences in those trained in music as compared to people who do not have musical backgrounds. Indeed, music has the potential to reduce monotony, boost morale, and motivate teams.
Relationship between Organizational Culture, Leadership Behavior and Job Satisfaction
But to what extent will listening to music while working enhance your productivity or distract your concentration? While many people may think listening to their favorite tunes help them stay focused, there are some exceptions and contraindications. This presentation will synthesize research relevant to the psychology of music in the workplace and summarize guidelines in regards to optimizing performance using appropriate musical selections.
University of Queensland, Australia. Much of leadership research emphasizes leaders as the central party in leadership processes. We address this imbalance by examining how followers influence leadership outcomes. We base our study within the social identity literature, and examine how collective identity motivates followers' collective action.
A CEO’s character can change a company’s culture, the way it operates, and its performance.
Our study examines how followers' perceptions of injustice, their felt anger, and group identification encourage the followers to engage in collective action against leaders. The study follows the controversy surrounding the 1Malaysia Development Berhad 1MDB scandal, wherein Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak has been accused of siphoning public funds for personal benefit. Results from this study contribute to the growing evidence that followers are neither submissive nor subservient parties in the leadership process, but can themselves engage in actions that dictate leadership effectiveness.
Some buildings which were designated as a refugee site were struck by the tsunami, and many people died. Many people who believed the seawall would protect them died without evacuating. The tsunami went beyond the expected level and flooded the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant and the cooling functions of the nuclear reactor was lost.
As a result of the lost function, some explosions occurred and radioactive material dispersed. Against this backdrop, many problems were discussed for five years. In this symposium, we'd like to discuss about what safety means, how to recognize risk, how to coexist with risk, and how to communicate between scientists and nonprofessionals. Obviously, none of these decisions can be effective without supports of experts.
Also, none of these decisions should be made against wishes of citizens.
In order to alleviate the difficulties, the author has been conducting preliminary efforts. One type of the efforts is to visit the towns nearby NPPs to have repetitive dialogue sessions so that trust can be gradually formulated. The other type of effort is to try to find out facts that both experts and citizens can agree to share.
Empirical findings from these efforts would be summarized in this presentation. However, it is hard to say what Japan has learned from all these unforeseen circumstances. The Great East Japan Earthquake of March resulted in a series of disasters, involving tsunamis and nuclear disasters. From his observation, the author perceives that, unlike the previous disasters, the earthquake demands a shift in Japan's perspective on natural disasters; however, Japan is continuing along its original path of trials and errors.
In this presentation, the author discusses how this earthquake has changed the relation between safety and the sense of security and how this impacts Japan's safety management philosophy. Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur, India; 2. Resilience plays an important role in the life of individual and organizations for maintaining sustainable performances. Rapid globalization, economic turmoil and changing nature of business environment, have forced employees to perform by compromising their health, happiness and wellbeing to achieve organizational productivity.
This has posed work related problems and health hazards for employees in the workplace. Keeping this in view, the present symposium aims to discuss the role of resilience and wellbeing in the context of employees work behavior. It also tries to examine the role of cherishing and emotional intelligence in resilience and wellbeing that leads to better performance, productivity, and employees' health and happiness.
The speakers of the symposium would like to share their experiences by sharing their research findings gathered from various industrial organizations. The empirical evidences will be discussed in terms of their theoretical and practical implications. The term "resilience" has its roots from positive psychology and in true essence, signifies "good life", for which every individual desires, while surpassing every change.
Nevertheless, the concept of resilience at work is not novel. But exploring resilience at work in Indian context would carve a niche for Indian managers to cope up with the adversities of the environment and emerge to be more flexible and adaptable. The validation process has been conducted on a sample of employees working in manufacturing industries. The data were subjected to Exploratory and Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The analysis yielded five dimensions in contrast to the original seven dimensions. The study provides a breakthrough evidence for the psychometric properties of resilience at workplace in Indian work setting.
Occupational stress and psychological health relationship: Role of resilience as a moderator. The purpose of this study was to examine the role of resilience as a moderator of the relationship between occupational stress and psychological health of supervisory level employees. The present study was conducted on supervisory level employees of a manufacturing organization in India. The sample was selected using convenience sampling method.
The moderated regression analysis of the data revealed that resilience significantly moderate the relationship between occupational stress and psychological health of the supervisors. This study may help supervisors to understand their positive traits or attributes like resilience which could help in coping with occupational stress and maintaining good psychological health to work efficiently which is need of the hour for smooth functioning of organizations.

Psychological empowerment conveys cognitive manipulation exhibited in the form of individual sense of perceived control, competence, authority and autonomy to act, and goal internalization. Previous studies indicate empowered employees to be more psychologically connected in their work leading to enhanced capacity building such as resilience.
Resilience has been explored as a work engagement enhancer among employees.
The present study explores the role of psychological empowerment in predicting employee engagement. It also explores the mediating role of resilience between psychological empowerment and employee engagement. Data were collected on employees from Indian manufacturing sectors by using a set of standardized tools of psychological empowerment, employee engagement, and resilience. The study used PLS path modelling to analyse the data. Findings show a significant moderating role of resilience between psychological empowerment and employee engagement.
The theoretical and practical implications of the study are discussed in the context of human resource management. Psychological wellbeing in workers and not Peruvian workers: Correlates and internal structure. Cesar A Merino 1,2 , Sergio Dominguez 1,2 1.

The aim of this study is to examine the psychometric properties of the Scale of Psychological Well Casullo, , looking for structural features and extend its relationship with other constructs. The implications of the results in the employment context are discussed. The study addresses the 'subject of work' of socionomic professionals, namely, lawyers, physicians, school teachers, in psychosemantic terms.
In total, the study involves people. The key idea of the study consists in research of semantic features of professionals' treatment of a person as their 'subject of work', which function as a "discriminator" of successful or unsuccessful professionals.
They might be a source of joy, inspiration, creativity that protect professionals from negative emotions, or as a cause of professional problems expressed in negativity. We argue that the description of 'subject of work' which is important part of professionals' world view, differs semantically depending on their psychological wellbeing.
The data obtained confirm the ambivalent impact of the 'subject of work' on professionals due to the features of their subjective views formed during their work experience.
However, in Japan, entrenched gender division and traditional gender role attitudes prevent people from pursuing better balanced life even among younger generations. The results showed as follows: 1 Females possessed more liberal attitudes than males, 2 Both males and females premised that men should continue working without childcare interruption, 3 As for time management plan, males with egalitarian attitudes allocated more time for household work, while females with egalitarian attitudes allocated more time for paid work.
The current study was aimed to explore the relationships between emotional intelligence, cognitive ability, and leader's performance. Data were collected from senior managers from UAE. Data suggests that EI and cognitive ability are significantly correlated with leadership performance. In depth implications of the present findings for human resource development theory and practice are discussed.

Corruption is pervasive and widespread in Nigerian society. It has permeated all facets of life and has been identified has one of the banes of development in Nigeria. Unequal distribution of services has been attributed to involvement of civil servants in corrupt behaviour.
However, factors predisposing civil servants to corrupt practices have not been adequately investigated. This study, therefore, examined the influence of perceived organizational fairness and pay satisfaction on attitude toward corruption among civil servants in Oyo State, Nigeria. Results revealed no significant mean difference based on perceived organizational fairness.
