Lab Dynamics is a unique guide to the interpersonal side of scientific research and management. The book provides practical solutions to some of the toughest problems that working scientists and science managers face daily problems for which most scientists are unprepared. Eleven thematically focused chapters show scientists how to communicate and interact more productively and how to develop and improve their management and leadership skills. Every chapter from the first edition has been revised, updated and supplemented with new illustrations and graphics; many new case studies have been added to illustrate themes and techniques. Two new chapters have been added and new sections have been added to Chapter 3, "Gordian Knots: Solve the Toughest Problems through Negotiation" and Chapter 7 "Win/Win with Peers: Make Allies, Not Enemies", which now contains a section on Dealing with Difficult People.
