Many of the fundamental principles of psychology form the basis for management training. Using Psychology in Management Training aims to give trainers and student trainers a grounding in the ideas and research findings which are most relevant to their work.
Three major areas are explored from a management training perspective and illustrated with case studies: the individual psychological processes of learning, personality and motivation which are at the heart of most management training courses; the social psychological processes of group dynamics, leadership and stress which all arise from the interaction of people at work; the psychology of the actual training experience including the crucial training skill of communication and what is needed to meet organizational training needs.
Using Psychology in Management Training has a clear and accessible format with a comprehensive glossary of unfamiliar terms and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter.
