Talk:Motivation and emotion/Book/2018/Counterproductive work behaviour
Looks Great! Just made a couple grammer fixes. Just noticed that when you were using the abreviation of CWB, you began with CWBs. I did not fix anything to do with that. But If you are still editing, I just wanted to point that out. Good Luck! --U3160678 (discuss • contribs) 11:09, 21 October 2018 (UTC)
[Peer contribution Luke O] A great starting point here might be to sure up a robust definition of of what counterproductive behaviour is and more intriguing what motivates this? It may be that from an evolutionary perspectives employees are motivated to engage in counterproductive workplace practices to discredit their peers and hence have an opportunity to gain more resources? Poor communication and lack of conflict resolution skills may lead to counterproductive behaviour why people are motivated to engage in this kind of behaviour [identified factors in the literature] are many and varied use starting theories might include:
- Bandura's Self Efficacy theory
- Game Theory?
It might be useful to hone in on a good fit with one of the mini motivation theories there may be some good ideas on this in the organisational psychology; Management and group work literature. For example theres a process that occurs in group dynamics whereby some of the group members rely on other members of the group to do the work BUT are willing to take credit for getting the task done perhaps this might give weight to some of your argument contrast with productive work behaviour. You could also weave "Groupthink" into your writing which may also be a useful way of illustrating some of your key points Luke O
If you are struggling with studies talking about CWBs, here are a couple of good ones. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0191886911002388?via%3Dihub (Acquisitive or protective self-presentation of dark personalities?

I really like the topic you have chosen. I think it can be applicable to many people. Here are a few articles I have found that make help you.

Journal of Business Ethics, 130(1), 131–144. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10551-014-2209-5. -- I have done research on moral disengagement in the past. I believe it is a fairly big consquence.
An additional thought I had was that most of counterproductive work behaviour, I assume, will be based on workplaces. It may be of interest to do a section or little box on univeristy study work. This is if there is research out there on that. Well done. TaylorMal (discuss • contribs) 23:10, 17 October 2018 (UTC)
Sub-headings and references[edit source]
I agree with Taylor, I like how broad your topic is and how applicable it is to the general population! One thing I considered whilst reading your book chapter was whether counter productive behaviour such as procrastination, can be a good thing? the general consensus is that it is bad, and people shouldn't do it, but I figure if so many people do it then there must be something positive within it? I found the following article when I searched 'positive aspects of procrastination' into google scholar which may be helpful.
Chu, A. H. C., Choi, J. N. (2005). Rethinking procrastination: Positive effects of "active" procrastination behavior on attitudes and performance. The Journal of Social Psychology, 145, 245-264. https://doi.org/10.3200/SOCP.145.3.245-264
In my search I also found articles examining the association between perfectionism and procrastination, with the following studies finding that the higher ones perfectionism, the higher their level of procrastination.
Walsh, J. J., & Godwin, A. (2002). Individual differences in statistics anxiety: the roles of perfectionism, procrastination and trait anxiety. Personality and Individual Differences, 33, 239-251. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0191-8869(01)00148-9
Flett, G. L., Blankstein, K. R., Hewit, P. L., & Koledin, S. (1992). Components of perfectionism and procrastination in college students. Social Behavior and Personality: an International Journal, 20, 85-94. https://doi.org/10.2224/sbp.19184.108.40.206
You may want to do like a pro's and con's of procrastination section, or within the 'procrastination' heading that you have - include positive aspects and negative aspects. This may demonstrate that you have a deeper understanding of the topic if you consider both sides of the research. Also, you might want to have a heading of procrastination and perfectionism since there seems to be a lot of research surrounding this. You can also relate this to mental health as perfectionism tends to be associated with anxiety.
I hope this help! Good luck with it.
Sounds like an interesting topic, keep up the good work. Although you have been given great suggestions and references by others, I thought I would contribute one that I found really interesting and relevant to your topic:
Shoss, M.K., Jundt, D.K., Kobler, A., & Reynolds, C. (2016). Doing bad to feel better? An investigation of within- and between-person perceptions of counterproductive work behavior as a coping tactic. Journal of Business Ethics, 137(3), 571-587. doi: 10.1007/s10551-015-2573-9.
It suggests that employees who are dissatisfied in the workplace engage in counterproductive work behaviour in order to feel better. This could be a great theory to add to your chapter, if you haven't already.
