Under the Fourth Industrial Revolution, it is important that organizations recruit and retain managers with skills that allow them to focus on meeting strategic objectives. To achieve this, companies must focus on implementing strategic management that allows managers to manage and lead continuous change, creativity, innovation, learning, productivity, speed, and effectiveness of their activities that turn them into constant value generators. Managers must also possess personal competences such as initiative, resilience, assumption of risk, creativity, networking, empathy, negotiation, self-control, self-knowledge, and the ability to turn difficulties into opportunities. These capabilities are important in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution because they will allow organizations to cope with the highly changing environment that will enable them to consolidate their growth and profitability. Management Training Programs in Higher Education for the Fourth Industrial Revolution: Emerging Research and Opportunities delivers emerging research investigating empirical studies on the formation of management competences in higher education in the context of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in regards to its development and linkage with the business sector in order to offer educational strategies at the national and international level. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as sustainable development, circular economics, and big data analysis, this book is ideally designed for academicians, educators, executives, managers, entrepreneurs, organizational development specialists, consultants, policymakers, researchers, administration professionals, and high-level students.
Among evidence-based therapies for children and adolescents with oppositional, aggressive, and antisocial behavior, parent management training (PMT) is without peer; no other treatment for children has been as thoroughly investigated and as widely applied. Here, Alan E. Kazdin brings together the conceptual and empirical bases underlying PMT with discussions of background, principles, and concepts, supplemented with concrete examples of the ways therapists should interact with parents and children. The second half of the book is a PMT treatment manual. The manual details the particulars of the therapy: what is done to and by whom, what the therapist should say, and what to expect at each stage of treatment. It also contains handouts, charts, and aides for parents. A companion website (www.oup.com/us/pmt) provides additional resources for clinicians.
Offers a conceptual framework and a compendium of techniques, practical guide-lines and tips for managers in both the public and private sectors and those involved in the management of large and small enterprises, management centres and institutes.

This book introduces the topic of intercultural mediation and conflict management. Based on the latest scientific research and successful conflict management practices, it provides theoretical insights and practical, self-reflective exercises, role-plays and case studies on conflict, mediation, intercultural mediation, and solution-finding in conflict mediation. The book serves both as a self-learning tool to expand personal competences and cultural sensitivity, and as training material for seminars, workshops, secondary, advanced and higher education and vocational training. It is a valuable contribution to the fields of intercultural conflict mediation and conflict management, intercultural communication, intercultural training and coaching. This is a book about practicing – the applied practice of competent conflict crafts in diverse intercultural contexts. Conflict practitioners, mediators, and intercultural trainers would be inspired by Professor Claude-Hélène Mayer’s creative integration of relevant intercultural models with do-able conflict strategies and in reaching intergroup harmony with reflexivity and cultural resonance. --- Professor Stella Ting-Toomey, Human Communication Studies, California State University at Fullerton, USA, and Co-Editor of The SAGE Handbook of Conflict Communication, 2e Given the difficulty and complexity of successful intercultural collaboration and conflict mediation, this is a much-needed addition to cross-cultural positive psychology. It is rich in content and training. I highly recommend it for teaching, corporate training, and for executive coaches. --- Professor Paul T.P. Wong, President International Network on Personal Meaning and President Meaning-Centered Counselling Institute, Toronto, Canada Intercultural conflict resolution is a critically important task in this modern world. This book by Professor Mayer is a welcome handbook on how to use mediation to resolve those conflicts. It should be in the library of every conflict mediator. My congratulations to Professor Mayer for her important work. --- Dan Landis, Founding President, International Academy of Intercultural Research, Affiliate Professor of Psychology, University of Hawaii
Many of the fundamental principles of psychology form the basis for management training.Using Psychology in Management Training aims to give trainers and student trainers a grounding in the ideas and research findings which are most relevant to their work. Three major areas are explored from a management training perspective and illustrated with examples * the individual psychological processes of learning, personality and motivation which are at the heart of most management training courses * the social psychological processes of group dynamics, leadership and stress which all arise from the interaction of people at work * the psychology of the actual training experience including the crucial training skill of communication and what is needed to meet organisational training needs Using Psychology in Management Training has a clear and accessible format with a comprehensive glossary of unfamiliar terms and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter.
