In writing Psychology for Leaders, Dean and Mary Tjosvold also drew on material gleaned from interviews with dozens of managers in a wide range of organizations in the U.S. and Canada, Europe and Pacific Asia, as well as their experiences managing their own multimillion dollar health services corporation. As a consequence, throughout this fascinating and instructive book, the authors bring psychological abstractions to life with many inspiring real-life success stories and vignettes that vividly illustrate psychology in action in the workplace.
