Description: "Principles of Management and Leadership" is a cost-effective, concise text that covers the essentials of management and leadership. Often considered separate and distinct disciplines, readings in this book demonstrate that there is considerable overlap between management and leadership, both in theory and in practice. The first chapter of the text addresses motivation, a critical component of both. The concepts discussed in this chapter have immediate real-world application for students, helping them achieve personal success in their current coursework. Later chapters add a fresh and relevant leadership perspective to traditional topics in management.The materials chosen for the text reflect the author's experience as both a lifelong educator at the university level, and a business professional dealing with management and leadership issues in his role as Dean of a number of large business schools. Effectively blending life experience with current theory, "Principles of Management and Leadership" addresses the following essential topics for leaders and managers: Motivation, Management History, Ethics, Planning, and Organizing Leading, Controlling, Human Resource Management, Teamwork, Writing, and Speaking as a Manager; Diversity, Power, Small Business Management, Global Management, Emotional Intelligence, and Managing Your Career in Business.Stephen (Steve) F.
