Summary: Emphasizing teamwork, leadership and technology, this text distinguishes itself in two major ways: its emphasis on teamwork and leadership skills and its integration of ethics and diversity throughout. This text is especially timely because of the recent attention given to teams in business and industry, the examination of technology's role in small group communication, and the growing awareness that colleges should be challenging students to examine their own leader
ship competence and understand the ethical and social implications of the groups in which they participate.

Benefits :

  • NEW! Chapter 3 has been revised to include step-by-step direction on how to run a meeting.
  • NEW! Integrated discussions focused on the principle of technology's impact on group and teamwork including a discussion of group decision support software.

  • Emphasis on skills, rather than theory, helps students quickly gain practical knowledge.
  • Unique Chapter 7 on creative thinking in small groups.
  • Cultural diversity, gender, and ethical issues are integrated throughout and are treated as an integral part of quality teamwork.
  • Strong, useful appendices on group formats and group reports provide reference material for students.
