The text guides you through eight interactive learning modules covering different leadership roles, including director, producer, mentor, facilitator, coordinator, monitor, innovator, and broker.

  • The authors’ unique skills-based approach prepares you for today’s management challenges.

  • Real-world managerial examples illustrate key concepts and offer insight into the roles that managers play in real companies.

  • Coverage of timely topics such as emotional intelligence, mentoring/coaching, and life balance will help you keep pace with today’s rapidly changing workplace.
