DIFFERENCES BETWEEN INDIVIDUALS IN THE WORKPLACE
TUTOR: Well, you’ve both been looking at different styles of managing individuals in companies and the workplace. How’s the research going. Philip?
PHILIP: Well. I’ve been looking at why individualism. I mean individual differences, are such an important area of management studies. When you think about any organization, be it a family business or a multinational company, they are all fundamentally a group of people- working together. But it’s what these individuals contribute to their places of work that makes you realize how important they are. Of course, they bring different ideas, Q21 but it is also their attitudes and their experiences of learning. Diversity is important in these areas too.
