Griffin/VanFleet, MANAGEMENT SKILLS: ASSESSMENT AND DEVELOPMENT, 1E, offers a comprehensive, real world approach to mastering the skills needed for a career in management. Because instructors often express the difficulty of creating an active learning environment, this text offers an active, not passive, way for students to learn management skills by challenging students to be self-reflective and asking them to complete numerous assessments, exercises, cases, and other activities. The authors also address another major concern instructors have about students being visual learners by providing a unique Visualize the Skill section not found in any other text. To better enable students to learn about management, chapters are organized in an easy-to-follow format that contains: Assessing Your Skills (pre-assessment scales); Learning About the Skills (concept portion of the text); Practicing Your Skills (exercises); Using Your Skills (case analysis); Extending Your Skills (group and individual exercises); Visualizing the Skills (video exercises); Your Skills Now (assessing skills after working through the chapter); and Interpretations (scoring keys and comparison data).
