Managing People at Work is a comprehensive guide to the latest theory and research in the area of industrial and organizational psychology. Written for managers as well as business students, it presents easily understood concepts without using technical business jargon. The book focuses on both day-to-day and strategic problems in areas such as management styles, group decision making and organizational change. Information is enhanced with case studies, questionnaires, and exercises throughout the book. HR Magazine Managing People at Work is both a practical guide for managers and a valuable introduction to management issues for students in business, professional, and technical programs. Comprehensive in scope but easily accessible to a wide audience, the volume distills the latest theory and research in industrial and organizational psychology, presenting workable concepts and techniques with a minimum of jargon. The authors place particular emphasis on helping managers deal successfully with day-to-day and strategic problems in the workplace, examining issues such as appropriate management styles, group decision-making, organizational change, and more. Exercises, case studies, and questionnaires are included throughout to help managers further develop their skills. Divided into three principal parts, the volume moves from the micro aspects of managing people to the macro or organizational aspects of people management. In the first section, the authors concentrate on dealing with individuals by exploring personality and individual differences, motivation, leadership potential, and management styles. Part Two focuses on people working in groups and addresses questions about the differences between group and individual decision making, the effects of group decision making processes on individual motivation, the causes of intergroup conflict, and the ways in which conflict can be minimized. Organizational problems and the effects of organizational change are treated in Part Three, while a final chapter considers an important, yet usually neglected aspect of management: how to manage your boss. Numerous explanatory figures and tables accompany the text.
