People Management Skills in PracticeCall for Compact Teaching CasesThe International Cases in Business and Management book series published by Routledge (Gina Vega and Rob Edwards, Series Eds.) is seeking teaching cases and instructor notes for an edited book focused on people management skills in practice. Target Publication Date: December 2023The book will be used as a consulting or teaching tool to assist business students or novice managers and leaders in developing a set of managerial skills to handle the challenges of managing or coordinating with others. Each chapter will be organized around a theme and will have its own set of reflection questions, recommended readings, and general discussion questions to supplement the individual case teaching notes. We welcome cases that incorporate diversity, an international focus, or management of virtual teams.
Chapter 1's cases will focus on topics related to "creating a positive workplace climate and culture," such as voice, onboarding, creating trust, and selecting the right people for a virtual team.
Chapter 2's cases will focus on topics related to "communicating effectively," such as receiving or giving feedback, reflective listening, and miscommunication (e.g., cross- cultural; nonverbal issues).
Chapter 3's cases will focus on topics related to "motivating and coaching subordinates," such as setting goals and objectives, coaching, cross-cultural motivation, fear of failure, and empowerment.
Chapter 4's cases will focus on topics related to "influencing others," such as upward influence, using power ethically, building and using your power base, and persuasion from a position of little power.
Chapter 5's cases will focus on topics related to "managing conflict" such as managing conflict with subordinates or in cross-cultural teams, or handling the challenges of going from peer to supervisor.
