Book Description

Social intelligence is defined as the ability to be aware of relevant social situational contexts; to deal with the contexts or challenges effectively; to understand others' concerns, feelings, and emotional states; and to interact appropriately in social situations and build and maintain positive relationships with others. Intelligence, Sustainability, and Strategic Issues in Management analytically discusses this concept within administrative and entrepreneurial managerial business environments.

The volume opens with a study of academic department chairs' social intelligence and faculty members' satisfaction with annual evaluation of teaching and research at a US university. The seven other articles cover a range of topics, including a neurocognitive model of entrepreneurial opportunity, ownership dilution, sustainability in inventory management, the role of status in imitative behaviour, the negative impacts of embeddedness, product quality failures in international sourcing, and employers' use of social media in employment decisions.

In addition to the articles, the volume also features a case study, "From Social Entrepreneur to Social Enterprise," a research note, "Reducing Job Burnout through Effective Conflict Management Strategy," five book reviews, and a list of books received.
