To keep up, employees have felt increasingly compelled to spend more of their waking hours at the office. How can individuals balance daunting career demands and personal and family needs? How can managers lead employees in a business environment where work and personalities invariably conflict? Dr. Hal Levinson, a groundbreaking medical researcher, has explored these difficult questions for decades. This timely Harvard Business Review Paperback book marshals more than a dozen of Levinson's most insightful writings on work-life issues. From avoiding burnout to pursuing a second career, from dealing with abrasive personalities to handling the emotional and career challenges facing middle-aged managers, Hal Levinson on the Psychology of Leadership helps managers successfully work through common and vexing human issues encountered in the workplace.
