Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This new addition to the "Portable MBA" series presents an executive management guide to issues such as teamwork, change, and leadership. Part 1 addresses personal and interpersonal needs such as leadership styles and methods, career development, and power and politics from ethical and strategic viewpoints. Part 2 examines needs at the organizational level, including organizational design, human resource management, and diversity. The book combines both conceptual and practical material. The diagnostic questions posed in the power and politics section provide an excellent tool for managers to assess the ethical implications of their actions. An impressive collection of experts contributed to this recommended volume.

Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for a class. I assumed it would be another "sterile" textbook. I have been really nicely surprised. The book is easily read and is full of applicable material to anyone in business. I highly recommend this book. But I won't be selling mine at the end of the semester.
