Product Overview

How can we maintain competitive advantage in a rapidly changing environment and at the same time create and sustain organisations in which people thrive both materially and psychologically?

While organisations are facing the twin challenges of advancing technologies and increasing levels of competition, successfully developing and retaining the talents of all its members is key to organisational effectiveness.

"INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES AND DEVELOPMENT IN ORGANISATIONS" is a wide-ranging review of research, theoretical developments and current best practice for HR consultants, managers, academics and advanced students in psychology.

Michael Pearn has assembled a comprehensive collection of renowned academic specialists and leading practitioners to provide academic research findings and practice-relevant information on a variety of subjects. These include: whether competencies exist; the meaning of Emotional Intelligence; whether personality influences performance; what turns an assessment centre into a development centre; whether development resources should be concentrated on the most gifted; methods of developing diversity; and using networks to enhance learning.

This authoritative handbook will prove an invaluable tool for those charged with the development of people in organizations in today’ s climate of constant change.
