Human Relations In Organizations : Applications and Skill Building (ISBN10: 0256261458; ISBN13: 9780256261455)
ISBN13: 978-0256261455
ISBN10: 0256261458

Summary: Robert N. Lussier differs from the leading competition by adopting an applications/skill building approach, a growth area in the Human Relations market. This approach suits professors who want to incorporate more activities and exercises into the classroom. Robert N. Lussier's market share (over the past few editions) has grown because more schools have adopted the activities-based style. Instructor's want students to apply concepts and develop skills that
can be used in their daily and professional lives Features
  • Balanced three pronged approach : Although the prior three editions had these distinct approaches this edition makes it easier for readers to identify.
  • Concepts : A clear understanding of human relations concepts as demonstrated by:
    • * Strong research base- an average of 47 references per chapter.
    • * Systems Orientation - Marginal notes identify behavior as either individual, group or organizational.
    • * Pedagogical Support - Learning Objectives and an indication in the body of the text where the objective can be met. Key Terms, Chapter Outlines, Exhibits, some of which bring together multiple concepts/theories. Active chapter review and glossary students must fill in a response.
  • Applications : The application of human relations concepts for critical thinking.
    • * Opening case - Students understand the application of concepts to actual people in organizations by using the opening case throughout the chapter.
    • * Work application -11 questions throughout the chapter require students to apply concepts to their own work experiences.
    • * Application situations - Each chapter contains 5 -10 questions that require students to apply concept in a specific short example.
    • * Objective Cases - Short case at the end of each chapter with 10 multiple choice and open-ended questions requiring students to apply concepts to actual people and organizations.
    • * Video Cases at the end of eight chapters require students to think critically as they apply the specific text concepts to answer questions about an organization shown in the video.
  • Skill Building : The development of Human Relation Skills
    • * Self-Assessment Exercises - Each chapter has two or three exercises to enable students to gain personal knowledge of self. All information for scoring and assessing can be found within each exercise.
    • * Skill-building Objectives and SCANS - Each skill building exercise begins by listing its objective. Listing the Secretary's Commission of Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS) compenticies developed through the exercise follows the objective.
    • * Models - Robert N. Lussier includes 25 models with step-by-step instructions for handling day-to-day human relations issues.
    • * Behavior model videos show people successfully handling day to day human relations situations.
  • 8 1/2 x 11 paperback/workbook format appeals to professors seeking a less expensive alternative.
