Event: Call for Book Chapters
The subject of leadership and managerial psychology exists as a sub-branch of psychology within the field(s) of industrial and organizational psychology. There still appears to be ongoing debate regarding the core pathology for gaining managerial expertise in professional roles relative to having suitable leadership skills and managerial knowledge beyond the direct daily work involved in organizations. Professional organizations inherently include varied levels of sensitive human interactions, which further necessitates their management professionals to have leadership styles that are adjustable contingent on a given situation. Relative to this edited book, managerial psychology is being utilized in a way that may subsequently seek to develop a series of scientific theory principles where the focus is to develop managerial axioms that advance contemporary existing knowledge surrounding professional management logic. This book views managerial psychology as shared by various practitioners', academicians' and management and psychology experts' collectively to gain a holistic point of view of their lived experiences and existing knowledge. Because managerial psychology applies in all types of organizations where the behavioral patterns of individuals or groups of people impact the bottom line, the implications of the contribution of various related topics within the book chapters is expected to provide important thought dimensions to a community of scholars and practitioners as well as society in general.
