Human Capital Leadership: A Strategic Approach to Optimizing Workplace Potential provides a comprehensive introduction to human resource management issues in the modern workplace. Focused on understanding complex human behavior within a dynamic organizational context, the book covers strategic human capital leadership, globalization, and strategic IHRM to meet AACSB requirements. Human Capital Leadership presents a wide range of introductory material, human resource management readings, management case studies, and cross-disciplinary research in an organized, clear, and accessible manner. The concise and lively approach of the text engages students and helps them develop their critical thinking skills and human resource competencies, while applying core concepts to a global workplace environment. Of special note are the supplemental resources, most of which are not typically available in academic readers. These include in-depth glossaries, a topical index, and appendices on U.S. employment and labor law. Written for undergraduate and graduate business students, the substantive content of Human Capital Leadership makes the book a successful stand-alone text for courses in Human Resource Management. It can also be used as a supplemental reader to standard textbooks. In addition, it is a useful resource for organizational managers, leaders, and human resource professionals seeking to understand proven practices and methods in order to maximize their human capital potential.
