Developing Management Skills by David A. Whetten
Very interesting material, not the type where you dread flipping open the pages compared to other textbooks. As academic books go, this one is dense and intimidating. I’m not a particularly slow reader, but in this text, each page chapter would easily take me several hours to read.
Nonetheless, I found this book engaging and compelling. Rather than approaching the topic of management from a research or scholarly perspective, the authors treat this book more as a practical field manual for managers that just happens to be informed by research. Each chapter begins with a skill assessment some of As academic books go, this one is dense and intimidating.
Each chapter begins with a skill assessment some of which were on-line and would be tied to a class if one were reading this text in school and then moves on to a learning section, describing management theories and skills.
The learning sections are not footnoted which a.qhetten the reading free of distractions. But the references section in the back is massive, so you know that Whetten and Cameron have done their homework.
The chapters cover topics ranging from “managing stress and well-being” to “motivating others” to “building s.camero teams. If you’re looking for a book to help you start thinking about what it means to be an effective manager of people, this a.wetten be a good place to start.
It’s think and dense, but if you read it a chapter at a time as I did, it’s well worth the investment. An early edition of this was assigned as a text in one of my Organizational Behavior courses when I was ceveloping MBA student. I found it both useful and engaging then, and have since used later editions in some of my own classes.

Feb 29, Jamie Pennington rated it it was amazing Shelves: I learned so much from this book. I have been an executive director of several non-profits in various parts of the mid – west for 14 skil,s and I wish I had read this book 14 years ago. I can not wait to begin implementing some of the strategies in this book. This is a text book for a business management course I am taking in about a month.
I hope to learn as much from this class as I did this book. The book is a bit long. And sometime a bit repetative but a good book. Even though this is pretty outstayed as far as the publication date, I was surprised at how relevant the Emotional Intelligence section was. Consider this a large reference book, but I enjoyed most of not- especially the part about designing work to fit the employee.
There are valuable insights in this book, but not all of it is managementt applying. Apr 12, Rainey rated it liked it Shelves: Dec 12, Kelly Fogg rated it did not like it. Read this for an MBA class.
Avoid it if you can.
