About this Book

Organisations are communities. Increasingly the leaders of those communities are drawing on the services of psychologists to help them realise the potential of their "human capital". What do these business psychologists do to assist in the identification, motivation and development of the talent that employees bring into their communities?

The authors, all Principal Members of the Association of Business Psychologists, are experienced and qualified professionals who candidly share their experiences and learning derived from those experiences. They provide case studies and examples from real interventions, they ask provocative questions about conventional thinking and practice and they explain the models that help them make sense of the complex organisations in which they operate. Business Psychology in Practice takes us on an excursion behind the scenes in organisations. This book will be of interest to consultants, those who commission their services and anybody wrestling with 'people issues'.
