About this book


Managers are confronted with many difficult demands which are still unknown to them. Gaining a better knowledge for unconscious ways of human behavior and their motivations is very important. This book introduces research work to European readers by selected contributions from leading psychoanalytically oriented management theorists and clinicians. The authors deal with different topics such as leadership, corporate culture, family business, organizational stress, career dynamics and so on. All of them try to win an understanding and insight into conscious, unconscious, rational and irrational behavior. The purpose of this book is fulfilled if this knowledge can be practiced in order to achieve improvements for the cooperation between people in general.
