More Details..

Leadership used to be about telling people to go where you sent them– now it’s about persuading them to come with you.

Old leaders needed to create an artificial persona of infallible authority to issue orders that were obeyed – today’s leaders need to uncover their own authentic leadership personality and bring that open and honest self to conversations that bring others to willing and lasting change.

To do so effectively they need to unlearn old leadership behaviours and develop totally different ones. In Leading by Coaching Nick Marson shows how. Leaders are shown how to “Look In” to develop greater self-awareness, “Look Out” to others by utilising a coaching approach, and “Look Beyond” to face uncertainty, manage adaptability and acquire resilience.

Marson’s approach is based on deeply researched principals, multiple social science disciplines, the latest cognitive, neurological and psychological research, and in-depth research interviews with over 20 CEOs and senior executives. It has been developed and refined over many years of practice.

If leaders want to drive impactful change, they need to understand how to hold the coaching conversations that power it. They need to lead by coaching.

More Details..

This book provides the synthesis and integration of the intellectual and experiential thinking around organisational leadership and development, focusing on three organisations as case studies: Plan International, Mater Foundation, and Oxfam, with the aim of informing For-Purpose, Not-For-Profit organisations about fundraising leadership.

Working with the case study organisations, the authors observed a repeated set of six Fundraisers’ Dilemmas. Wanting to solve these dilemmas for Fundraising Executives and Teams was the genesis of this book. The book's premise is to point out that fundraising requires more than just coming up with the next “ice-bucket challenge” or having yet another gala ball, and that it requires the combination of the right fundraising activities coupled with the right organisational approach. 

The book provides, maybe for the first time, a real-world implementation for leaders of organisations in the For-Purpose and For-Profit worlds to create more engaged, collaborative and effective teams, which break down silos and deliver greater outcomes and impact for their organisations’ missions.

The book combines inductive business research with deductive academic research to present and explain best practices in fundraising, with a focus on the concepts of Emotional Fundraising, Life Time Value, and the Donor Pyramid.

More Details..

This book discusses the proper use of legal language in business communication. While communicating, a business leader has to bear in mind the relevant legal framework, and be sure to never violate it. However, legal language in itself can be so complex and difficult that it is often unclear as to what meaning can be ascribed to different words and phrases used in a particular context. Also, while it’s easy to say that there are certain limits to the law, those limits are not readily visible to the uninitiated; occasionally, even experts flounder. Exploring precisely these topics, the book will be of interest to students of business, law, and business communication; managers; lawyers; researchers; practitioners; and general readers alike.

More Details..

Deciding on the strategic direction of a corporation is complex and increasingly so in the volatility, uncertainty, and ambiguity that characterises the strategic options facing a company today. Faced with this complexity, the model of governance, which has largely remained unchanged for many decades, raises several important questions. Economic theories of corporate governance have held sway for over three decades and have exerted considerable influence on board studies and writings on the subject. In particular the agency paradigm and its assumptions, has de-emphasised the human side of governance, which may be better explained by drawing on theories in social psychology.

In the existing literature on boards and board dynamics, the internal context in which the board director works, has been inferred from structural or compositional factors such as number of independent directors. However, we know for instance that independence of a board director does not guarantee independent mindedness. In enacting their advisory role, directors shape strategy by engaging in behaviours that include for example testing ideas, questioning assumptions, evaluating strategic logic, raising concerns, weighting risks and offering encouragement. Despite the quality of such interpersonal interactions playing a vital role, board research has adopted an "under-socialised" view of boards, failing to recognise boards as complex social systems, embedded in complex power asymmetries and role and group identity affects. Drawing from theories in the field of social psychology, the author uniquely examines the human side of corporate governance recognising the role that identities, interests and interactions between board directors plays.

More Details..

This book describes advanced machine learning models – such as temporal collaborative filtering, stochastic models and Bayesian nonparametrics – for analysing customer behaviour. It shows how they are used to track changes in customer behaviour, monitor the evolution of customer groups, and detect various factors, such as seasonal effects and preference drifts, that may influence customers’ purchasing behaviour. In addition, the book presents four case studies conducted with data from a supermarket health program in which the customers were segmented and the impact of promotional activities on different segments was evaluated. The outcomes confirm that the models developed here can be used to effectively analyse dynamic behaviour and increase customer engagement. Importantly, the methods introduced here can also be used to analyse other types of behavioural data such as activities on social networks, and educational systems.

More Details..

Medications such as Vioxx and procedures such as vertebroplasty for back pain are among the medical "advances" that turned out to be dangerous or useless. What Dr. Vinayak K. Prasad and Dr. Adam S. Cifu call medical reversal happens when doctors start using a medication, procedure, or diagnostic tool without a robust evidence base—and then stop using it when it is found not to help, or even to harm, patients.

In Ending Medical Reversal, Drs. Prasad and Cifu narrate fascinating stories from every corner of medicine to explore why medical reversals occur, how they are harmful, and what can be done to avoid them. They explore the difference between medical innovations that improve care and those that only appear to be promising. They also outline a comprehensive plan to reform medical education, research funding and protocols, and the process for approving new drugs that will ensure that more of what gets done in doctors' offices and hospitals is truly effective.
