| About The Book Basic Managerial Skills For All
The Ninth Edition of this well-established text, while retaining the contents and style of the earlier editions, continues to discuss the basic skills of management and leadership. The assumption of the book is that the human person is by nature a manager and has leadership and managerial skills that can and should be continually developed. These basic skills are: reading, writing, learning, speaking, interviewing, training, deciding, problem-solving, managing conflict, and motivation. And in this book, Fr. McGrath, with his masterly skills and wealth of experience, tells how these skills can be fully developed and mastered. Constant use of pointers, tips, exercises and questionnaires, supplemented by hand drawings, make this book exceptionally reader friendly.
