The Management Skills Builder: Self-Directed Learning Strategies for Career Development

Synopsis

The body of knowledge to be mastered in a technical or professional education leaves little or no time for the acquisition of skills that cut across disciplinary boundaries. Used in all fields, these interdisciplinary skills are vital to the careers of many managers and professionals. Among them are interviewing, writing, public speaking, interpersonal relations, computer use, information search design, and development of lifetime learning skills. Hambrick's purposes are to increase the awareness of the need for these skills among professionals and to suggest ideas about how those skills may be acquired, further developed, and honed.
