Lab Dynamics is a unique guide to the interpersonal side of scientific research and
management. The book provides practical solutions to some of the toughest
problems that working scientists and science managers face daily problems for
which most scientists are unprepared. Eleven thematically focused chapters show
scientists how to communicate and interact more productively and how to develop
and improve their management and leadership skills.
Every chapter from the first edition has been revised, updated and supplemented with
new illustrations and graphics; many new case studies have been added to
illustrate themes and techniques. Two
new chapters have been added and new sections have been added to Chapter 3, "Gordian Knots: Solve the Toughest Problems through Negotiation" and Chapter 7 "Win/Win with Peers: Make Allies, Not Enemies", which now contains a section on
Dealing with Difficult People.
