Book Description :

From the former secretary of defense and author of the acclaimed #1 best-selling memoir Duty, a characteristically direct, informed, and urgent assessment of why big institutions are failing us and how smart, committed leadership can effect real improvement regardless of scale. Across the realms of civic and private enterprise alike, bureaucracies vitally impact our security, freedoms, and everyday life. With so much at stake, competence, efficiency, and fiscal prudence are essential, yet Americans know these institutions fall short. Many despair that they are too big and too hard to reform. Robert Gates disagrees. Having led change successfully at three monumental organizations—the CIA, Texas A&M University, and the Department of Defense—he offers us the ultimate insider’s look at how major bureaus, organizations, and companies can be transformed, which is by turns heartening and inspiring and always instructive. With practical, nuanced advice on tailoring reform to the operative culture (we see how Gates worked within the system to increase diversity at Texas A&M); effecting change within committees; engaging the power of compromise (“In the real world of bureaucratic institutions, you almost never get all you want when you want it”); and listening and responding to your team, Gates brings the full weight of his wisdom, candor, and devotion to civic duty to inspire others to lead desperately needed change.

Book Description :

The need for high-quality leadership in all areas of business and organisational activity has never been greater. A myriad of interlinked factors mean that styles of leadership that were appropriate in the past are now no longer working. These factors include new technologies, more questioning attitudes to authority, the arrival of the "virtual organization" with its network of contributors, and the unprecedentedly high expectations of customers and employees. In Intelligent Leadership, Alan Hooper and John Potter look at how changes affect people in businesses and organisations, using specific case studies of individuals. They propose practical ways for leaders to provide effective leadership in a quickly changing and confusing work environment. The focus is on winning hearts and minds, on leadership as an emotional and psychological commitment to the people being led, and on the idea of emotional intelligence.

Book Description :

This book puts 'real life' back into the literature on school principalship. Through a life history approach, it portrays daily life in schools as a much more messy, contested and precarious existence, where principals struggle with passionate commitment to find continuity amongst frequently changing and often conflicting policy initiatives. The book draws on comprehensively in-depth interview data with new, experienced and veteran principals. Their life stories illustrate the struggles involved in the ongoing negotiation of identities through unprecedented change. The authors lucidly argue that: * The realities of principals' lives are much more demanding that rational linear approaches to reform suggest; * A revolving door approach to the appointment of principals is inadequate * Passion is central to the lives and work of principals, but this passion needs to be rejuvenated and rekindled through opportunities for learning * There is a need for further research on the relationship between the lifecycles of principals, the leadership legacies of school communities and the cycles of mandated reforms as a means of lending coherence to leadership learning and sustained and renewed leaders. This is essential reading for principals and their professional bodies, academics and researchers, school leaders on leadership courses internationally.

'I recommend the book as an inspiration to those who are looking for the words that express what they may already do (or will do in the future!) for these well known writers have world wide experience in recognising and knowing what it is that makes the passionate leader' - International Journal of Educational Management 'This is a very interesting collection of chapters on leadership...Each chapter is written with verve and conviction, and it makes quite stimulating reading' - Curriculum Perspectives 'Passionate Leadership is a fantastic book by leading thinkers and doers in the education field. It takes moral purpose to new levels, and above all it puts passion in perspective. The book shows that it is not passion by itself that counts but in combination with strategies, insights and daily wisdom. Above all this is a book of action , not rhetoric.' - Michael Fullan, Professor Emeritus, OISE/University of Toronto and Special Adviser on Education to the Premier of Ontario 'How opportune that Brent Davies and Tim Brighouse have produced a book on "Passionate Leadership". As school leaders are becoming increasingly disillusioned with instrumental forms of educational reform, Davies, Brighouse and their contributors offer a new vision of leadership one that is driven by a belief that teaching is about enabling every child to reach their potential, and a conviction that schools should be places filled with joy and optimism in the pursuit of social justice. This inspiration will encourage all our leaders to take their work to a new level.' - Professor David Hopkins, HSBC iNet Chair of International Leadership, Formerly the Chief Adviser to three Secretary of States In this book, internationally recognized writers on leadership explore what makes leaders passionate about their role and their schools. The contributors show that leadership must move on from the realm of a role or job towards an energy and commitment for enhancing children's learning and children's lives. They maintain that passion must be the driving force that moves vision into action, through a range of chapters from internationally known contributors Brent Davies, Tim Brighouse, Geoff Southworth, Chris Day, John MacBeath, Andy Hargreaves, John Novak, Brain Caldwell, and Alan Flintham. What sustains and drives leaders to achieve in a changing and challenging educational environment? What maintains their passion for education and children's achievement? This book seeks to answer these questions. The book is essential for all students on leadership programs and educational professionals looking to achieve self and organisational improvement.

Book Description :

This is the book that all chief executives would like their up and coming managers to read! They know from experience that when an executive fails, it is most often not because of a lack of industry knowledge or technical expertise; rather it is because of their poorly developed knowing of themselves and others, their lack of respect for those they manage, hopelessly inadequate listening skills, clumsy communication, and, not surprisingly, a loss of trusting relationships. All of which erode the foundation for true profitability and organizational health. As a leader, you must understand the soul of your business, have a clear vision for the future of the enterprise, and be able to passionately describe how you plan to take the organization to that ideal place. You must live with passion and lead through trust. For over 30 years Dr. R. John Young has been using his proprietary models and techniques to develop trusted and effective leaders. His research into why some leaders flounder while others flourish has led him to the identification of the five essential leadership questions. All leaders must be able to answer these questions if they hope to be trusted by those with whom they must collaborate and by those they lead. These are the foundational questions whose answers separate the authentic from the in authentic, the grounded from the lost, and the true leader from the word itself.
