Read full description of the books:
Based on years of case-study research and up-to-date scholarship, this book shows how business managers can benefit from a better understanding of the connection between emotion and intelligence and better deal with issues of sexuality and workplace relationships. In most organizations the vast majority of employees feel that management has failed to deal effectively with issues of sexuality and intimacy in the workplace. Yet personal relationships can profoundly affect productivity, morale and the well-being ofemployees. In this brilliant book, author Rory Ridley-Duff proposes a new framework for appreciating both potential benefits and harms of workplace relationships, and a new, constructive and non-confrontational approach to sexual relations in the workplace. Emotion, Seduction & Intimacy is a 'must read' for anyone concerned about the role of intimacy and close relationships in day-to-day life. Praise for Emotion, Seduction and Intimacy: "Rory's work is insightful and ... introduces the concepts of gender and intimacy to the subject of enterprise governance." Professor Phil Johnson, Head of HRM and Organisational Behaviour, Sheffield University "Rory is a man who ... does not shun the moral maze of human desires and passions but brings greater understanding to that very facet of life - the forbidden fruit that made us fall from grace and its role in our emancipation." Dr Poonam Thapa, Gender, Culture and Sexual Health Expert "Rory eloquently straddles the world of practitioner and academic: his writing is engaging and constantly draws the reader into the web of everyday emotions found bubbling away under the surface in the workplace. Sexual interplay, power and vengeance are played out on the pages - beats Dan Brown hands down!" - Dr Sally East, Specialist on Work-Life Balance, Royal Veterinary College "Rory's book has a magnificent tone - serious, high level addressing of issues of both organisational and theoretical importance. For me it is one of the very best studies I have read." - David Megginson, Emeritus Professor of Human Resource Development, Sheffield Hallam University"
