This book deals with familiar concepts in the management literature, but always in light of the model of the human person. It sheds light on organizing processes in individuals, small groups, and organizations and other large social systems by covering empirical research on three central topics -- modes of influence, intrapersonal communication, and change -- through which the social context is constantly shifting."@en ;
