This work seeks to give trainers and student trainers a grounding in the ideas and research findings which are most relevant to their work. Three major areas are explored from a management training perspective and illustrated with case studies: the individual psychological processes of learning, personality and motivation which are at the heart of most management training courses; the social psychological processes of group dynamics, leadership and stress which all arise from the interaction of people at work; the psychology of the actual training experience including the crucial training skill of communication and what is needed to meet organizational training needs. "Using Psychology in Management Training" has an accessible format with a comprehensive glossary of unfamiliar terms and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter.
