More Details..

This title was first published in 2000. Flexibility at Work shows you how to obtain the business benefits of flexibility whilst addressing the needs of both employer and employee. Peter Reilly breaks down flexibility into five different types, from functional through to financial. He introduces a model of how mutual flexibility might be developed and the preconditions necessary to make it successful. Along the way he cites much evidence of how employers are introducing alternative working arrangements that provide benefits to both parties. Flexibility can reduce costs, improve quality and service, increase productivity, hedge against change, and meet supply needs.

Encompassing interviews with managing directors and CEOs, this book explores the role of business outsiders as leaders. Viewing the term ‘outsider’ in a broad sense, the book considers leader background, perspective, gender, training and family membership and examines the implications, challenges and benefits brought by outsider leaders to their respective business environments. The authors explore questions and themes such as how outsider leaders can enrich an organisation, the importance of relationships and adopting a ‘hybrid’ approach, illuminated by interviewee perspectives. Introducing discussion and analysis through these narratives, Outsider Leadership distils commonalities to frame understanding of their experiences.

Why do policies and strategies often fail, and what can be done about it? How can complexity be managed in cases where it cannot be reduced? The answers to these questions are anything but trivial, and can only be found by combining insights from complexity science, system dynamics, system theory and systems thinking. Rooted in the seminal works of Gregory Bateson, Jay Forrester, Donella Meadows, Peter Senge, W. Brian Arthur, John Sterman and Thomas Schelling, this book bridges the gap between rigorous science and real-life experience to explore the potential and limitations of leverage points in implementing policies and strategies. It also presents diagnostic tools to help recognize system archetypes, as well as the powerful language of stock and flow diagrams, which allows us to think in terms of circular causality. These tools are subsequently employed to thoroughly analyze particularly thorny problems such as global climate change, the tragedy of the commons, path dependence, diffusion of innovations, and exponential growth of inequality.

Become the leader others want to follow

Forget everything you know about motivating others and building a harmonious workplace. If you want to get the best out of people, you must be willing to fight. But, that doesn't mean you become a dominator, nor does coddling others work.

The best leader you've ever had in your life was a liberator—someone willing to fight for your highest good, even at a personal cost. Inside, global leadership experts Jeremie Kubicek and Steve Cockram explain what made that leader so unique, how to become that person yourself, and how to share the same gift with others.

  • Be one of the few that people actually want to follow
  • Learn the lost art of leadership—the intentional calibration of support and challenge for everyone you lead, your team and your family
  • Become a multiplication master as you learn to bring the best out of people for their highest good and that of the whole team
  • Overhaul entire cultures by focusing on the transformation and empowerment of sub-culture leaders
The 100x Leader will help you become—and build—leaders worth following.

More Details..

The book goes beyond theory to offer tools and suggestions for developing emerging leaders. Inspired by the pioneering work of leadership scholar Andre Delbecq, this book points towards an expanded model of leadership that incorporates an active inner life, and posits that such fully human models of leadership will be essential to meet the profound challenges of the 21st Century. Without presuming to provide definitive answers, the text explores central questions such as: What is the added value of spiritual maturity to leadership? Would the integration of mature spirituality with well-developed intellectual and emotional capacities produce more beneficial leadership outcomes for organizations and individuals? What would a spiritually and developmentally mature emerging leader look like in 10 to 20 years? How do we prepare emerging leaders for the challenges they may face; and how do we model spiritually and developmentally mature leadership in ways that resonate with them?

Professor Andre Delbecq (1936-2016) of the University of Santa Clara created the heuristic of “spiritually and developmentally mature leaders” to encapsulate his observation that outstanding leaders often seemed to draw strength and wisdom from sources that are not typically studied or taught in leadership courses. Thirty scholars and practitioners accepted Delbecq’s heuristic as the starting point to explore spiritual components of leadership that do not easily lend themselves to quantification or clear causal links. The analysis of their disciplined engagement with the heuristic forms the foundation of an exploratory, fully human understanding of leadership. This analysis is supported by literature reviews, including an overview of Andre Delbecq’s relevant work. Ultimately, the authors call for further collaboration across disciplines and between research and practice to build on the conceptual constructs offered here, and, especially, to create pedagogies for the training of spiritually and developmentally mature leaders

More Details..

B2B companies spend $40B on marketing each year, yet the traditional model for lead generation, the engine that drives growth for B2B, is fundamentally broken. It has failed to reliably generate strong business results, it has created friction, distrust and outright dysfunction between marketing and sales teams. Account-based marketing has quickly gained traction with the majority of B2B companies because it aligns sales and marketing teams around the accounts that will have the most business impact- whether they are prospects or customers. Instead of chasing a large volume of generic leads, or ignoring current customers altogether, ABM helps sales and marketing coordinate their efforts against a specific set of target accounts. Despite the rapid ascent of ABM, there continues to be a significant amount of confusion around ABM as a strategy. This book answers the key questions: How do you implement it? What are the best practices? What are real life examples of ABM programs? And what’s the best way to measure success? This book will help B2B marketers execute a world class ABM strategy.

Crush the Competition is a no-nonsense guide to transforming your entire attitude to sales, turning the old way of doing things on its head to shift all the power to you.

The innovative Sales Badassery philosophy enables you to turn yourself into an unstoppable sales powerhouse, taking no prisoners along the way.

The announcement of a serious diagnosis is a solemn moment where directions shift, priorities change, and life appears in sharper focus. It is also a moment when a story takes shape. It is a story we are able to imagine, even if we haven’t experienced it firsthand, because the moment of diagnosis is as pervasive in popular media, television shows, movies, novels, and newspaper articles as it is in medicine.

Exploring stories about diagnosis and pondering the impact they have on how we experience health and disease, Diagnosis: Truths and Tales shares stories written from the perspectives of both those who receive diagnoses and those who deliver them, and confronts how we address illness in our personal lives and in popular media.

The feeling of being burnt-out and exhausted, and of struggling endlessly to fnd a balance between family, work and other commitments is common. Many caught in this chase to succeed at all costs end up feeling like failures that they are just not good enough. The authors of You Are Good Enough! are determined to help the defeated feel empowered again. Addressing the reader directly, the book covers and discusses concepts and issues including: The idea of Enoughless: The pervasive, persistent and corrosive sense of not feeling good enough Its opposite, Enoughness: Believing that who you are, right now, is good enough Identifying and recognising how old, outdated life scripts may be keeping you trapped in anxious fatigue and toxic negativity Experiencing a shift of perception from the image of who you thought you were supposed to be (your counterfeit self) to the honest reality of your authentic self Taking ownership of your emotions and exploring how to become the person you naturally, truly are The book has four sections: Enoughless; The Opportunity Cost of Enoughless; Transformation to Enoughness; and Experiencing Enoughness. Chapters include Anxious Fatigue, Loss of Purpose and Roadmap to Enoughness, and real-life examples based on case studies are given throughout. The ultimate aim is for readers to embark on a heros journey in their hearts and minds, fnd and embrace their authentic selves, and from then on re-discover and embrace their inherent worthiness.
