my dissertation is focussing on the psychological contratct. My suppervisor told me, to concentrate on Trust and also on employee voice. Is employee voice the involvement of the employee in the organization?
Looking forward to read ur comments. Any other tips regarding that topic, would be more than helpful

My suggestion is that you should read Steven Covey's book 'The 8th Habit'. You will find a lot about Voice in it. Also, read '7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. It talks about Trust in great detail.
Both books I've suggested are great foundation builders. Once you work your way through the concepts, it will really help you to apply them in the context of a workplace and translate that into your dissertation.
Good Luck!

Thank u very much Gaurav for the Book suggestions. IŽll go to the library tomorrow and IŽll hope that they have it. But comming back to the first question: Voice is employee involvement, or?
IŽm planing to analyse the pc with two different leadership styles (Directive and transformational) and will do a primary research in a company.

First, you're welcome!

Second, I have my answer re: your question about voice being employee involvement. And, that is what I discuss in my leadership development programs with senior leaderships and C level executives from client organisations. But, I will not answer your question. Not because I want to make it difficult for you. Instead, I want your dissertation to be a rich and invigorating experience. Because, you've decided on a topic which is extremely powerful and almost entirely separate from most run-of-the-mill leadership dissertation topics.

Third, regardless of which leadership style context Voice is analysed in, the outcome is always the same. The only time it will vary is when it is applied in the context of management as opposed to leadership.

As for researching in a 'live organisation', my suggestion (given your choice of topic) is to select one that has existed for at least 25 - 30 years. Because, it is only in sustainable organisations that Voice is truly visible as a couse of ordinary business culture!

Once again, good luck & have FUN!
