Destructive Criticism Revisited: Appraisals, Task Outcomes, And The Moderating Role Of Competitiveness, Jaclyn Jensen 2011 DePaul University

Destructive Criticism Revisited: Appraisals, Task Outcomes, And The Moderating Role Of Competitiveness, Jaclyn Jensen

Jaclyn Jensen

Destructive criticism is negative feedback that is inconsiderate in style and content, which exists at the intersection of performance feedback and interpersonal mistreatment. The current research integrates these literatures with an investigation of the effects of destructive versus constructive criticism from a co-worker on recipients’ relational appraisals, emotions, and task outcomes. Drawing from theorizing about cognitive appraisals after personal affronts, we first propose that those who experience destructive criticism are more likely than those who experience constructive criticism to (a) perceive that the feedback-giver intended to harm them, (b) blame the feedback-giver, (c) distrust the feedback-giver, and (d) feel anger ...

The Movement Of Meaning Across Cultures: A Conceptual Model For Understanding Cross-Cultural Consumption, Hélène de Burgh-Woodman 2011 The University of Notre Dame Australia

The Movement Of Meaning Across Cultures: A Conceptual Model For Understanding Cross-Cultural Consumption, Hélène De Burgh-Woodman

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman


 
This chapter asks the questions of whether traditional marketing tools and practices are sufficiently reflexive to deal in the international environment and how we might refine our understanding of cross-cultural environments. Starting from the vantage point that ‘‘international’’ occurs within national boundaries rather than across them, this chapter conducts a qualitative ethnographic study of Arabic and North African people who participate in a visible ‘‘street culture’’ on the streets of France. This ethnographic project models consumption habits in these groups. It asks why they consume certain things, what value or meaning discourses are articulated through these things within their group ...


Monetary Policy Rules: From Adam Smith To John Taylor, Pier Francesco Asso, Robert Leeson 2011 University of Palermo

Monetary Policy Rules: From Adam Smith To John Taylor, Pier Francesco Asso, Robert Leeson

Robert Leeson

Twenty years ago, John Taylor proposed a simple idea to guide monetary policy. Quickly the idea spread, not only through academia, but also to the trading floors of Wall Street and the Federal Reserve's boardroom in Washington. Now, two decades later, the Taylor rule remains a focal point for discussions of monetary policy around the world.


Cars For Sale! An Ethnography Of The Collusion Of Space And Consumption In Power And Agency Struggles, Hélène de Burgh-Woodman 2011 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Cars For Sale! An Ethnography Of The Collusion Of Space And Consumption In Power And Agency Struggles, Hélène De Burgh-Woodman

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman

The importance of space and its “perception-shaping, behaviourinducing
properties” (Sherry 1998) has been long acknowledged by
consumer researchers. Public spaces such as shopping malls (Sandicki
and Holt, 1998), bridal salons (Otnes, 1998), and converted
shopping centres (Maclaren and Brown, 2005) have all been investigated
as spaces where meanings are unravelled, contested and entertained.
Equally, spaces play out emotive experiences such as escape
(Hewer, 2003), utopia and nostalgia (Maclaran and Brown, 2005).
Adding to this important opus, the present paper investigates public
space as a site of contested power and agency manifested through
consumption. The use of public in this context ...

Building A New Brand Community Through Online Media: The Transition From Print To Online Platforms At Le 10 Sport, Hélène de Burgh-Woodman, Doris Madingou 2011 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Building A New Brand Community Through Online Media: The Transition From Print To Online Platforms At Le 10 Sport, Hélène De Burgh-Woodman, Doris Madingou

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman

As online media increasingly assumes dominance in the marketplace, we use the case study
of French company Le 10 Sport to explore the complexities associated with transition from
print to online media and the impact on brand community. Le 10 Sport is a sport media
company that has successfully gone online. As traditional print media outlets are
increasingly pressured by the need to abandon existing readerships and go online, the
essential question explored in this paper is can a sports media producer build and maintain
its brand community while transitioning to the online platform?
The findings suggest the transition from ...


Consuming The Aesthetic Of The Everyday: A Visual Analysis Of Errol Morris' "High Life", Hélène de Burgh-Woodman, Cathie Payne 2011 The University of Notre Dame Australia

Consuming The Aesthetic Of The Everyday: A Visual Analysis Of Errol Morris' "High Life", Hélène De Burgh-Woodman, Cathie Payne

Hélène de Burgh-Woodman

Co-constructed meaning between marketer and consumer is a key dimension of convergent
(Jenkins 2006) media. Using “Miller’s High Life” ads (1999-2005) we discuss how content
convergence prompts different co-constructed meanings among consumer segments, how
“mundane art” is produced and how the marketer/consumer relationship is transformed into
a filmmaker/viewer-consumer one. From an interdisciplinary perspective, we discuss the
implications of this transformed relationship for marketing.


A Meta-Analysis Of The Relationships Between Diversity, Conflict, And Team Performance, F De Wit, L Greer, Karen Jehn 2011 Melbourne Business School

A Meta-Analysis Of The Relationships Between Diversity, Conflict, And Team Performance, F De Wit, L Greer, Karen Jehn

Karen A. Jehn

Since the meta-analysis by De Dreu and Weingart (2003b) on the effects of intragroup conflict on group outcomes, more than 80 new empirical studies of conflict have been conducted, often investigating more complex, moderated relationships between conflict and group outcomes, as well as new types of intragroup conflict, such as process conflict. To explore the trends in this new body of literature, we conducted a meta-analysis of 116 empirical studies of intragroup conflict (n = 8,880 groups) and its relationship with group outcomes. To address the heterogeneity across the studies included in the meta-analysis, we also investigated a number of ...

Laptops On Trolleys: Lessons From A Mobile-Wireless Hospital Ward, Stephen Weeding, Linda Dawson 2011 Monash University

Laptops On Trolleys: Lessons From A Mobile-Wireless Hospital Ward, Stephen Weeding, Linda Dawson

Associate Professor Linda Dawson

Most hospital-based staff can be considered to be mobile but many hospital information systems (HIS) are based on fixed desk top computers. Wireless networks allow HIS to be brought to the point of care using mobile devices such as laptops on trolleys thus providing data which can aid in clinical decision-making. The research objective of this project focusses on the collaborative design of a laptop solution for providing data at the point of care. The research approach was based on a combination of action research and design science. Action research techniques including participant observation and informal oneto- one discussions were ...

An Investigation Of The Appropriation Of Technology-Mediated Training Methods Incorporating Enactive And Collaborative Learning, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom 2011 University of North Florida

An Investigation Of The Appropriation Of Technology-Mediated Training Methods Incorporating Enactive And Collaborative Learning, Saurabh Gupta, Robert Bostrom

Saurabh Gupta

The growth in the application of information technology to student and employee learning underscores the need to understand the impact of Technology-Mediated Learning (TML) methods. Using previous developed TML models, based on Social Cognitive Theory and Adaptive Structuration Meta-Theory, the effectiveness of three training methods were examined in this study: technology-mediated (using both vicarious and enactive learning), collaborative and combined (collaborative plus technology-mediated). The study also focused on the learning process. The experimental study results showed a significant positive influence of enactive learning enabled TML and collaborative training on specific training outcomes while the combined training method shows positive results ...


Relationship Benefits: Conceptualization And Measurement In A Business-To-Business Environment, Stephen Kelly, Donald Scott 2011 Southern Cross University

Relationship Benefits: Conceptualization And Measurement In A Business-To-Business Environment, Stephen Kelly, Donald Scott

Adjunct Professor Stephen J Kelly

This article offers both a conceptually valid measure of the relationship benefits derived from the relationship marketing, networks, services marketing and strategy literature and demonstrates the concept’s effect on business-to-business bonds. Four types of relationship benefit labelled cost, service, flexibility and image benefits are identified and their measures tested for reliability and validity. A structural model incorporating associations between a second-order relationship benefits construct and other salient relationship concepts is also tested, with significant direct associations between relationship benefits, trust and relationship investments evident, together with indirect associations between relationship benefits and instrumental, affective and normative commitment, absence of ...
