Applying Research on Attitudes

Please number your responses and place responses to each item below in a separate paragraph. It is also recommended that you complete your original post in a separate document that you can save rather than typing it inside the discussion as you will be unable to make edits once you submit your work. 

The purpose of this discussion is to help us practice applying information from the lesson and text. Post your answer to the following questions in a new thread. If you feel uncomfortable answering some of these questions in a public manner, you may e-mail your original response to your instructor, but please be sure to participate by replying to others (see instructions below).

Table 10-3 (on page 332) of your textbook describes various types of violations to one’s psychological contract. Read these over and think about a time when you witnessed one of these in either your work setting, social groups, or coursework. Briefly describe this incident and label the type.
(a) How was employee (or student or group member) satisfaction and commitment impacted by the event above? Explain using these terms and related concepts from your lesson and text.

(b) Using the types of responses to violations of psychological contracts described on pages 331 to 333 in your text, describe in more detail the consequences of the event above.
Using what you have learned about the antecedents to satisfaction and commitment discussed in the lesson, suggest what an organizational (or group or course) leader could do to improve attitudes following this event. Note: “antecedents” are clearly labeled in the lesson commentary – look at your page headings to find the sort of material you should be referring to and citing here.
