Sometimes you may consider taking a walk, doing yoga, or watch television to take your mind off the situation. This may be your way of stress and anxiety management. Apart from these, there are few more tips and techniques that can be used to tackle both stress and anxiety.

This unique book discusses how to manage an organization in China. It is based on the invaluable practical experience of entrepreneur Johan Bjrkstn, who successfully built a local consulting business with over 100 employees, and Anders Hgglund, a seasoned manager who set up high-growth and highly profitable operations in China for a major industrial multinational. The book provides widely applicable advice based on experiences from different industries, including but not limited to those of the authors. Most books about business in China belong to one of two categories: autobiographical "success stories" or academic treatises. Managing in China goes beyond these genres to provide highly relevant, practical advice and checklists, as well as concrete and illustrative examples from the authors' own experience. Managing in China succinctly explains how historical, cultural and social factors influence today's Chinese business environment, and how managers should take this into account in day-to-day operations. The book focuses on managing in a rapid-growth environment, but also provides advice on how to ensure sustainable operations and profitability in mature industries or a temporary downturn.

Managing in the New Team Environment is essential reading for all managers in contemporary business organizations who are attempting to work productively in today's challenging economic environment. As the organizational model based on hierarchy and conformity has increasingly revealed its inability to meet competitive challenges, a new team environment has evolved. Larry Hirschhorn's Managing in the New Team Environment presents an overview of the skills and techniques required to manage successfully in this new environment and focuses in particular on the ways in which the manager's role should change in response to changes in the nature of the team. The book, which includes extensive case studies, is designed to help managers understand the social and psychological realities that shape their choices and behaviors. The manager in the new team environment is at once a member of the team and the leader of the team. Hirschhorn presents guidelines to help the manager adapt to this dual role, to become a "learner" as well as a "controller," and thereby ensure that the team functions at optimal effectiveness. Divided into five chapters and a summary, the book introduces the manager to the nature of the new team.
