About the Book
There are numerous publications available to help current or aspiring academic faculty members enhance their professional abilities. However, there is a distinct shortage of works that cover the several soft skills junior faculty must possess to be promoted to tenure. This text discusses conflict resolution, negotiation, mediation, time management, understanding the politics of academia and many other vital skills. This book was written to emphasize the significance of these skills and to help junior professors acquire and implement them to improve their chances of getting promoted and tenured. It also covers the promotion and tenure processes, as well as how to remain competitive even after achieving this coveted goal.
