Unlike typical organizational textbooks, Human Relations is less theoretical and more directly focuses on students in their current and future jobs. This textbook focuses on emotional intelligence and how to use it to achieve career success through ethics, communication, diversity, teamwork, conflict, decision making, stress management, motivation, and leadership. Portolese’s easy-to-understand approach engages learners while discussing how to effectively maneuver in the workplace.
