Book Description

In this Open Educational Resource (OER), readers will learn about key topics related to professional communication using a psychological lens. Readers will have the opportunity to examine how communication and workplace behaviours are influenced by individual differences in emotion motivation, learning, memory, decision-making behaviour, and personality.

In the second half of the book, we explore how these individual differences impact our interactions with others in groups and how we lead. The final chapter of the book looks outward to society and discusses ethics from the perspective of individuals and organizations.

This resource also contains case studies that will allow readers to hone their critical thinking skills and apply theory to real-world scenarios. In addition, readers will have the opportunity to reflect on their own knowledge, skills, and abilities using self-assessments for each chapter.
