In addition to the connections between home life, social life and professional activities, Cynthia Stohl says we must pay attention to the linkages that individuals develop and maintain within their organizational contexts.
Organizational Communication illustrates the ways in which today's changing social patterns, the increasing diversity of the workforce, the introduction of new communication technologies, and the challenges of global integration and competition, create organizational and interpersonal networks that are intricately interwoven. By reframing the network metaphor, the author challenges readers to examine the ways in which organizational communication is always embedded in, and influenced by, overlapping systems of relationships.
