“If you are a scientist, chances are that your self-awareness and interpersonal skills are not as well developed as your technical skills,” write Carl Cohen and Suzanne Cohen. “This limitation can impede your work.” They address this issue in a brand new edition of their book Lab Dynamics: Management and Leadership Skills for Scientists.

Cohen and Cohen offer practical advice on communication, self-awareness, relationships, motivation, negotiation, and mood management, and describe effective ways to interact with others. “We provide concepts, concrete tools, and exercises that will help you improve these skills,” they write. “Our approach is designed to aid you in overcoming the barriers to knowing yourself, what to do, and how to do it.”

This new edition of Lab Dynamics has been completely revised and includes new chapters. It will be of interest to all scientists and technical professionals, postdocs, and graduate students seeking career satisfaction and success. For more information on the book, click here.
