LAUSANNE, Switzerland, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading-edge research shows it is possible to improve performance by changing behavior
Changing Employee Behavior is the latest book from the writing partnership of Nik Kinley, behavior-change expert and Professor Shlomo Ben-Hur, organizational psychologist at IMD Business School. They emphasize that an important part of every manager's job is changing people's behavior: to improve someone's performance, get them to better manage relationships with colleagues, or to stop doing something. Yet, despite the fact that changing people's behavior is such an important skill for business leaders, many are unsure how to actually approach it. And some even believe it can't be done. Changing Employee Behavior proves it can.
This book reveals simple and powerful techniques for changing behavior that experts from a range of disciplines have been using for years, making them available to all managers in a single and comprehensive toolkit for change that managers can use to drive and improve the performance of their staff. New research conducted for this book introduces practical techniques drawn from the fields of psychology, psychotherapy, and behavioral economics, and show how they can be applied to address some of the most common, every-day challenges that managers face.
