The forces of technology, globalization, and knowledge have given us new horizons. And today, as always, our reach exceeds our grasp. To respond to these challenges, organizations are taking an increasing interest in communication in order to understand what part they play in the big picture.Employees today are given greater opportunities for engagement in organizational life. They are trained to show self-direction, not just to follow orders, and to display both technical and emotional intelligence. They are expected to use collaboration skills to deal with problems such as interpersonal and cultural differences.Steeped in examples, stories, and cases from Canadian businesses from all corners of the country, Organizational Communications: Principles and Practices in Canadian Business equips students with a solid grounding in this ever-changing, increasingly important field of study.
