Summary "As managerial work regimes move continuously towards post-industrialism, forms of communication change with it. Work relationships are increasingly becoming communicative relationships. Given the prevalence of asymmetrical power relations based on managerial structures of domination at work, today's communication shows signs of distortions. To end communicative distortions a fundamental restructuring of managerial communications is required. Seeking to solve this problem, this book established a new hands-on model of communication that will set up workable and practical communication forums."--BOOK JACKET
