Management in the Mirror: Stress and Emotional Dysfunction in Lives at the Top
Schell combines her research with findings from other studies to map the strategies, personality predispositions, and mood-coping capabilities for making it to the top of the corporate ladder―and for staying there. Nearly 400 of today's corporate leaders reveal their secrets for success and the stress and personality and mood disorders that go along with it. The result is an authoritative insight into the people who made it in today's corporate world, and a bold reconfirmation that life at the top is not always worth coveting.
Schell's book is written for present-day corporate leaders and for those seeking to become leaders and is designed to help understand the special traits one needs to become successful. Schell reports in detail on corporate leaders' stress-coping strategies, influence strategies, personality dispositions, the ways they cope with their mood swings, and how they see themselves performing their own compensation negotiations. Managers and management aspirants, specialists in organizational psychology, and human resource executives will find Schell's book both enlightening and cautionary.
