CONTRIBUTIONS OF THE SOCIAL MILIEU TO CHANGING INDIVIDUAL POLITICAL ORIENTATIONS
Abstract:This paper proposes a model for examining the combination of individual perceptions of politics and intentions to engage in political activities (termed political orientations) under the influence of social processes in organizations. The concept of political orientation is viewed as a fluid strategy for subjective influence which is affected by elements of the organizational context, work-group interactions, and leader/member relations. Research propositions are offered concerning the impact of selected variables on the adaptation of individual political orientations within organizations, and suggestions for future research are discussed.
