Synopsis:
In order to make an effective contribution, HR specialists have to be good at management, leadership and developing themselves and others. However, in addition, they need to be aware of the management and business considerations that affect their work. Armstrong's Handbook of Management and Leadership provides guidance on the processes of management and leadership with particular reference to what managers and aspiring managers need to know and do to make a difference.
