From the Back Cover:

Understanding and Changing Your Management Style

Drawing on recent findings in the neuro- and cognitive sciences, this second edition of Understanding and Changing Your Management Style offers a guide for identifying, analyzing, and understanding the building blocks that successful managers share in common. Robert Benfari outlines the six building blocks (Psychological Type, Needs/Motivation, Use of Power, Conflict Style, Our Basic Values, and Our Reaction to Stress) that you need to develop as an effective manager. He shows how to utilize behavioral strategies for resolving conflicts, solving problems, managing stress, handling difficult situations at work, and positively influencing others. The book utilizes self-assessments, concept development, cases, and exercises to enhance the building blocks.

"Robert Benfari's new book, Understanding and Changing Your Management Style, represents the distillation of a lifetime of teaching, research, and professional practice in this critical field. His multidisciplinary approach will prove an asset to students as well as to practitioners of management as they develop their successful leadership style." —Michael Shinagel, PhD, Dean of Continuing Education and University Extension, Harvard University

"A fascinating view into our brain and our management style, much needed today to cope with the 21st century work environment." —Ricardo Altimira, PhD, faculty, IE Business School, Spain

"Robert Benfari is a seasoned expert who offers the rare combination of insightful research and practical tools for exploring oneself and adapting to the ever-changing corporate world—as demonstrated by the vast appreciation of students and managers he has taught and advised around the world." —Prof. Dr. Ana Mar??a Mass, Dean, Virtual UADE (Universidad Argentina de la Empresa)
