Article
Full-text available
Although existing literature points to the importance of developing shared norms in virtual work and there is some work on norms within online communities, there is little research focusing specifically on how different types of norms operate within virtual work environments. Because differences in expectations across locations can result in increa...

Full-text available
Groups and organisations set cooperative goals for their members, yet in reality some team members contribute more than others to these goals. Experts, in particular, face a social dilemma: from the group's perspective they should share their knowledge, whereas individually they are better off not sharing, because acquiring knowledge is costly and...
Article

We extend previous research on team innovation by looking at team‐level motivations and how a prosocial team environment, indicated by the level of helping behaviour and information‐sharing, may foster innovation. Hypotheses were tested in two independent samples of health care teams (N1 = 72 teams, N2 = 113 teams), using self‐report measures. The...

Social media provide novel opportunities for street gangs to operate beyond their traditional borders to sell drugs, recruit members and control their territory, virtually and physically. Although social media have contributed to the means available to street gangs today, it does not mean that every gang agrees on their use. Drawing on different pe...

Humans are social animals, but not everyone will be mindful of others to the same extent. Individual differences have been found, but would social mindfulness also be shaped by one’s location in the world? Expecting cross-national differences to exist, we examined if and how social mindfulness differs across countries. At little to no material cost...

Nielsen et al. (1) argue that Van Doesum et al. (2) need to consider three points for their interpretation of a positive association between individual-level social mindfulness (SoMi) and environmental performance (EPI) at the country level (3). The association is weaker when 1) it is controlled for GDP and 2) when the data of three countries are r...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, organizations had to adapt overnight to remote virtual work. For most employees, one of the fundamental changes, associated with this adaptation is the shift to virtual work and associated remote communication. Whereas before the pandemic this way of communicating was an alternative to face to face communication during...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose: Status is a central aspect of teamwork relationships and successful collaboration in teams, both online and offline. Status group membership and status perception shape behavioural expectations and norm perceptions of what is appropriate but despite their importance have been neglected in previous research. Status effects are of special in...
Article
Full-text available
Purpose Different length of collaboration with colleagues at work is a central feature of modern working life, and even more so in a work environment that is increasingly project focused and knowledge-intensive. Despite its practical importance there is little research on how the perceived costs and benefits in an information-sharing dilemma might...
Chapter

This chapter focuses on the challenges and changes that the introduction of digital technologies into higher education teaching has brought about. To date the response to the possibilities of digital media in higher education has been mainly reactive and consisted mostly of ‘managing after the fact’ rather than a proactive approach with visions for...
Article
Full-text available
In this symposium we address the tension between working remotely ‘anytime, anywhere and with anyone’ and the individual embeddedness of the collaborators in a specific local physical, social, cultural, mental and symbolic space. In virtual work, there are two main reasons why the importance of context increases and adds further layers of meaning t...
Article
Full-text available
Good communication is vital for organisations at all phases of the economic cycle. In virtual, multicultural teams it is complex, sensitive and can be a considerable challenge. Karin Moser’s article, ‘Only a click away’, illustrates how even the tiniest matters – such as etiquette, forms of address and degrees of informality – can have significant...

Objectives: Following organ transplantation, complex psychological processes take place. This study investigated patients' use of metaphors relating to their experience of lung transplantation as well as differences in the use of these metaphors between patients with either high or low compliance. Methods: Fourteen lung transplant recipients were i...
Article
Full-text available
In current social psychology, the self is conceptualized as a "set of beliefs" (Baumeister, 1998). As there is no direct way to observe the self, a large part of self-knowledge remains tacit. Researchers mostly analyze "traces of the self" represented in language, for example as metaphors. It is argued that language can be conceptualized as symboli...
Article
Full-text available
Incentives are central to the reinforcement of behavior. In the context of group work, it is important to distinguish between individual and collective incentives as rewards. High reward interdependence should constitute an incentive for cooperation among group members (e.g., collective vs. individual financial rewards), but experimental studies pr...

Non-compliance is one of the crucial problems impairing outcome after transplantation. Fourteen lung transplant recipients were interviewed about their thoughts regarding transplant-related topics. Compliance was assessed by doctors. The psychological processing was investigated by content analysis. Highly compliant patients perceived more advantag...

Zunächst möchte ich etwas zur Auswahl der von mir bearbeiteten Filmsequenzen sagen. Ich habe die Sequenz sechs ausgewählt, weil sie am ehesten etwas mit meiner Perspektive auf Kooperation und Kooperationsprozesse zu tun hat. Zur Kooperationsanalyse habe ich an sich einen Fragebogen entwickelt, in dem ich organisationale, kollektive und individuelle...

Die Idee, alltagssprachiich verwendete Metaphern zur Analyse und Rekonstruktion von mentalen Modellen zu benutzen, stammt ursprünglich aus der Kognitiven Linguistik und basiert auf der Metapherntheorie von Lakoff und Johnson(1980). In der Psychologie ist die Metaphernanalyse in unterschiedlichen Teilgebieten sowohl aus der Grundlagen- wie auch aus...

Chapter
Full-text available
Was braucht es, dass das subjektive Gefühl entsteht, jemanden oder einen Sachverhalt verstanden zu haben? Was muss gegeben sein, dass etwas hinreichend gut verstanden wird, um als Handlungsgrundlage für das Entscheiden, Planen und Lösen von Problemen dienen zu können? Und was ist damit umgekehrt die Grundlage für potentielle Missverständnisse und F...

Damit Wissensmanagement erfolgreich und vor allem auch langfristig umgesetzt werden kann, braucht es die Bereitschaft zur Wissenskooperation aller Beteiligten. Wissenskooperation kann deshalb als zentrale Voraussetzung und als Basisprozess jeder Wissensmanagement-Praxis bezeichnet werden. Die Bereitschaft zur Wissenskooperation ist abhängig von ein...

Im Sinne einer Review werden die aktuellen Beiträge zur Metaphernforschung in der Kognitiven Psychologie und in der Sozialpsychologie vorgestellt und diskutiert.

Article
Full-text available
The analysis of metaphors is a classical research theme in linguistics, but has received very little attention in psychological research so far. Metaphor analysis—as conceptualized in cognitive linguistics—is proposed here as a qualitative method for psychological research for several reasons. Metaphors are culturally and socially defined, yet they...

Wissensmanagement ist für ein erfolgreiches wirtschaftliches Handeln von zentraler Bedeutung. Dabei spielen nicht nur die organisatorischen Strukturen und informations-technologischen Hilfsmittel eine wichtige Rolle, sondern vor allem die Bereitschaft und Motivation der Mitarbeitenden, zur Wissensidentifikation beizutragen, ihr Wissen darzustellen,...
Article
Full-text available
Die Auseinandersetzung mit dem Thema Wissensmanagement im Kontext einer vornehmlich betriebswissenschaftlich geführten Diskussion kann als ein bisher vor allem auf konzeptueller Ebene geführter Diskurs eingeschätzt werden. Es fehlen demgegenüber weitgehend systematisch reflektierte betriebliche Erfahrungen zum Thema. Anhand einer Falldarstellung zu...
