This textbook aims to bridge the gap between the conceptual understanding of management skills and their actual application to specific jobs. Each chapter outlines a five-step process for assessing, learning, analyzing, practicing, and applying management skills and building the foundations for effective practice. Covering personal, interpersonal, and group skills, the book provides a cross- cultural perspective of self-awareness, stress management, problem solving, coaching, counseling, communicating, gaining power, motivating others, managing conflict, delegating responsibility, and building teams. Whetten teaches at Brigham Young University. Cameron teaches at the University of Michigan. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
