In the modern economic paradigm characterized by a multitude of business management theories aimed at maximizing profits, there is a danger of formalizing management techniques to the extent of dehumanizing individuals or reducing them to humanoids. This book deals with familiar concepts in the management literature, but always in light of the model of the human person. It sheds light on organizing processes in individuals, small groups, and organizations and other large social systems by covering empirical research on three central topics - modes of influence, intrapersonal communication, and change - through which the social context is constantly shifting.Concepts from other fields are also introduced by the author into the field of management, such as philosophy, biology, sociology, semantics, and mythology, to name a few. As a protest against behaviorism, materialism, objectivism, determinism, elitism, and many other "-ism's" that degrade the human person, this book provides food for thought to students of management and organizational behavior, psychologists and sociologists, as well as political scientists and leaders of business and nonbusiness institutions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
El-Meligi's notion of leadership is based on deep understanding of the essential qualities that make us human. He reminds those in leadership position that the people they lead are as human as they are. They share the same qualities of intelligence, passion, and creative potential. -- Father Guy Bonneau "L. PS. M.Ed. Psychologist, Quebec, Canada"
This book is a must read for all practitioners of management. Nowhere is this more evident than in El-Meligi's teaching on the vital importance of energy management. El Meligi offers a meaningful antidote to the confining paradigm of 'work/life balance' bromides that we hear so much about, yet which offer sparse help in sustaining life's energy. -- Robert M Marino "President, Alpha Nouveau Consulting, Inc."
A fascinating book in which we witness a man coming face to face with opportunities which fate has placed in his way, he uses these opportunities as occasions to construct his life, in line with a theory that is integral part of his life. The entire book is written with the fervor and clarity typical of Moneim. It captures the attention of the reader from the beginning to the end. This book is essential not only for those who are interested in human relations of our time but all human relations of all times. -- Moustapha Safouan "Training member of the "Psychoanalytic Society of Paris" and Author of "Pleasure and Being" and Speech or Death""
Professor Moneim El-Meligi's latest book is a compendium of a life's work on what I would term 'the anthropology of management'. In his own humble style, he introduces ideas and concepts that go to the core of management, namely people. -- Dr N Varaprasad "Director, London School of Business and Finance, Singapore and former CEO, National Library Board, Singapore"
