Back cover copy

Bridging the gap between social and industrial/organizational psychology, Self and Interpersonal Insight offers a practical, engaging introduction to the social cognition processes that shape our perceptions and behavior in a variety of interpersonal situations. Combining important research and years of experience in human resources and training, Manuel London describes how social information processing can be harnessed to create more effective human resource programs, and how it affects a person's self-image, behavior, and quality of interpersonal relationships. London offers practical suggestions on how human resource programs can be designed to enhance insight and recommends ways to track employees' reactions to major organizational and career changes while facilitating team development.show more
