Knowledge is replacing infrastructure whereas values and self-assessment are replacing authority management. Companies are looking out for employees with emotional intelligence and team competencies, not just technical smarts whereas social networks and virtual teams are replacing committee meetings.
Therefore, Foundation of Human Skills is a small attempt in contributing among the management-oriented disciplines. The first attempt is written in the context of these emerging workplace realities. This new edition explains how emotions guide employee motivation, attitudes and personalities. How power and politics impacts the organisational effectiveness and how thinking and learning becomes an essential step in decision-making to increase the level of self-esteem of an individual for dynamic work set-ups.
this philosophy of the book is to orient students, instructors, industrial psychologists and other behavioural practitioners to understand the functions, needs and conceptual base for each of the topics under broad headings. Chapters like perception, creativity, conflicts, organisational development and stress are written keeping the current scenario and the forthcoming trends in mind.
The book is designed by the three eminent authors belonging to esteemed management institutes who have strictly followed the university prescribed syllabus.
Furthermore, this devotional attempt brings a sense of worthiness to present the first special edition of the handbook on the subject 1.1 Foundation of Human Skills in Management Studies to the educators and the loving students of Bachelor of Management Studies, First Year, First Semester.
