Humans are weird! They can be emotional, irrational and often unpredictable, yet as their manager, it is your job to get the best out of them. In fact they are often the key to your success. Sadly, humans do not come with an instruction manual which lists their technical specifications.
In Human Nature, Greg Clydesdale argues that even where human nature is addressed at a conceptual level; the link between theory and what actually happens in the workplace is usually weak and often fails to recognize that social ability is probably the defining aspect. Students are expected to understand the concepts but are left to themselves to grasp the workplace implications. It is an intense focus on human nature and the link between a conceptual understanding of it and what actually happens in the workplace that makes this book so valuable.
