Topic maps at the beginning of chapters link the topic within the holistic whole to illustrate how topics relate to each other

You critical review questions throughout the text and the Critical Thinking Zones at the end of each chapter encourage students to question and consider alternative viewpoints to core theories using researched articles to debate issues such as work life balance, knowledge/gig economy, performance management and emotional intelligence.
