The Ninth Edition features the authors' popularTotal Personapproach, highlighting seven major themes that affect human relations throughout the text: communication, self-awareness, self-acceptance, motivation, trust, self-disclosure, and conflict resolution. Real-world examples and practical applications engage students' interest and facilitate learning, ensuring that they gain the basic, how-to skills necessary to manage their careers. Topics covered in the Ninth Edition now include the root causes of negative attitudes; an introduction to the Reiss Profile, an instrument used to classify people's basic desires; and how "branding" can be used to achieve greater visibility in a crowded job market. This edition features a new set ofHuman Relations in Actionboxed inserts, including "Jargon Predates Bubble Burst at WorldCom," "Wanted: Employer with Ethics," and "Avoid Creating a No-Complaint Zone."
