The focus of this important book is leadership - the dynamic relationship between managers and employees. Sims and Lorenzi show how the concepts of reinforcement, goal setting, social learning and social cognition can be applied by managers on a day-to-day basis. Numerous case studies and on-the-job examples are cited and these serve to reinforce the theoretical discoveries presented by the authors.
