In this innovative book, renowned psychologist David Kantor applies his research and theory of structural dynamics to the workplace to show how individual leaders and coaches can develop their own skills in understanding group dynamics and apply this understanding to improve organizational communication and performance. Reading the Room provides guidelines for understanding the differences between communication in low stakes and high stakes situations, a framework for improving leadership behavior in crisis, and action strategies to enhance leadership development through organizational approaches and accelerated team performance.
