The concepts of individual, group, and organizational behavior are delivered in a way that allow students to envision how they will fit into organizations and be successful in leadership roles.  A variety of tools are used to guide students through the self discovery process, including chapter opening self-assessment tests, chapter opening and closing case studies and the Prentice Hall Self-Assessment Library.
