Product description

How do managers at successful organisations such as Google motivate their people? What's the best way to lead your team to high performance? What are peak experiences and how can you find them at work? Business is about people: for organisations to thrive, managers need to know how to identify and develop the right people, and how to communicate with, lead and motivate them. Work Psychology in Action introduces key psychological concepts and demonstrates how they come into play in the real world of work, while providing you with an awareness of how business priorities inform and underpin applied psychology. It combines summaries of important research studies with an exploration of topics from different international perspectives to give you a deeper appreciation of how psychology develops and is used around the business world. The book takes a practical, problem-solving approach to understanding the role of psychology in the workplace and focuses on employability skills that will benefit you in your future career. Key features: * Fad or Fact? debates highlight recent management tools and interventions and assess their evidence base.
* Psychological Toolkit boxes enable you to use what you have learnt to enhance your own employability and work life. * A section dedicated to cutting-edge psychology, including consumer and financial psychology and research methods.
