The Rise of psychomanagement in Australia

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

This book is about Australian managers and their long-standing love affair with psychologists. Using psychology to manage others has great attraction because it offers managers means by which they can control their colleagues. The problem is that psychomanagement requires knowledge that managers don't have. They have to understand various personality tests, theories and therapies which they are not trained to do.
