Product description


"My overall reaction to the proposed volume is quite positive. The editors are highly respected well known scholars. They have clearly put a great deal of thought and planning into the volume, and have invited a strong mix of contributors. I particularly like the diverse range of contributors―not only with regard to the area of expertise but also with regard to the country of origin. It’s very international. I think the people they have selected as commentators are excellent choices." -Steve Blader, New York University

"Identity is a long standing topic that continues to receive considerable attention in multiple disciplines―particularly in OB and OT research―it is usually among the top 5 research topics submitted to the Academy of Management Meeting (OT division) each year. I think this new angle is the integration of positive psychology and identity to focus on identities that are beneficial and valuable in some sense. To take a decidedly positive take on identity does strike me as unique. The volume contains a stellar line up of scholars that will surely draw attention and interest among psychologists and OB folks." -Carolyn Bartel, University of Texas Austin

"This book will doubtless contribute to outstanding scholarship on many aspects of identity and organizations." -Martin Kilduff and Raina A. Brands, Cambridge University

"The leading identity scholars who have contributed to this impressive volume provide cutting edge insights that extend across disciplines and levels of analysis. This anthology of original articles is required reading and an invaluable resource for those interested in the rich and multi-faceted construct of identity. It is a major step forward for the blossoming field of positive organizational scholarship." - Jeffrey T. Polzer, Harvard Business School

"By focusing on the positive dimensions of the content, process and outcome of identity, the authors show the ability of people and organizations to find a way forward towards something better. This book convinces the reader that positive change is possible also in situations of deep trouble and harshness and provides a compelling invitation to engage in the further development of positive identity in theory and practice." - Majken Schultz, Copenhagen Business School

"Exploring Positive Identities and Organizations breaks new theoretical ground at a time when concerns about identity are at their pinnacle. Roberts and Dutton bring together the most exciting thinking in this burgeoning area, providing a theory-driven roadmap of identity research's 'hot spots.' This volume will undoubtedly guide the next generation of identity research." - Herminia Ibarra, The Cora Chaired Professor of Leadership & Learning Director, INSEAD Leadership Initiative
