Emotions in the Structure of Psychological 'Fabric' of Organizational Culture

1710

Abstract

The paper explores the role and significance of the emotional factor in the system of components of organizational culture. Along with the psychophysiological component the authors describe patterns of formation of emotions in organizational systems and state that manifestations of these emotions are determined by cultural conditions of the organization and by the type of its organizational culture. The authors also outline levels of emotions and degrees of their subjective management in individuals. A set of requirements is proposed for the system of emotional management within the organization which may be implemented in a broad range of personality manifestations. Finally, the authors review the ecological theory of emotions, the psychophysiological and sociocultural approaches, analyzing their main propositions concerning the nature and management of emotions as well as perspectives for raising the efficiency of activity in the organization with the assistance of the emotional factor. On these grounds the authors propose an activity-based model of emotions determined by the type of organizational structure.
