Book Description :

The New York Times bestselling book about the early development, growth, and exercise of leadership from Pulitzer Prize-winning author Doris Kearns Goodwin “should help us raise our expectations of our national leaders, our country, and ourselves” (The Washington Post). “After five decades of magisterial output, Doris Kearns Goodwin leads the league of presidential historians” (USA TODAY). In her “inspiring” (The Christian Science Monitor) Leadership, Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely—Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights)—to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope. Leadership tells the story of how they all collided with dramatic reversals that disrupted their lives and threatened to shatter forever their ambitions. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to confront the contours and dilemmas of their times. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the opportunities and lives of others. Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? “If ever our nation needed a short course on presidential leadership, it is now” (The Seattle Times). This seminal work provides an accessible and essential road map for aspiring and established leaders in every field. In today’s polarized world, these stories of authentic leadership in times of apprehension and fracture take on a singular urgency. “Goodwin’s volume deserves much praise—it is insightful, readable, compelling: Her book arrives just in time” (The Boston Globe).

Book Description :

Turbulent times occur due to crises, which can happen at any time and in any organisation. Even if the firm is doing well today, it does not eradicate the possibility of the firm being thrown into trouble in the nearest future. No one can predict the future. While leaders of a company are enjoying the good times, they should equally consider the possibility of turbulent times; as a result, they should prepare for eventualities. They should get themselves ready for those times that crisis will be the order of the day. No one wishes for crises, but the crisis does not come by wishing for them; they come a random and the causes can be internal or external. Preparing ahead of time can prevent the problems of under preparation for crises. A company and its management should understand how to manage crises situations when such arise. The leaders in a company should be visionary enough to get them set for any problem that may arise.

Book Description :

This report is a personal account of insights yielded by a conference hosted in 1994 by the Center for Creative Leadership, "New Demands for Leadership: Responding to Turbulence." It explores ideas expressed by participants--behavioral science researchers, leadership trainers, corporate executives, and consultants--who attempted to clarify the critical new challenges executives are facing, identify skills and perspectives they need to meet these challenges successfully, and determine the implications for the selection and development of these new skills and perspectives. The framework for the report is the eight themes used to organize conference activities: teamwork and organizational stewardship among senior managers; leading beyond the organization's boundaries; rethinking the boss-subordinate, employer-employee relationship; senior executives as exemplars of values; operating excellence--making technology contribute; maintaining strategic focus to grow the business; senior managers who continue to learn; and the impact of U.S. culture on management. For each theme, personal impressions on the topic are given, based on preconference interviews and conference discussions. These are augmented with examples drawn from personal experience and reading. The book concludes with a selection of comments by executives in interviews and during the conference that illustrate the evolution in management thinking that has taken place since the demise of the "comfort years." Contains 35 references. (YLB)

Book Description :

This book analyzes education reform through the eyes of those entrenched in the process—policy makers, administrators, middle managers, principals, and teachers—in the context of care. A senior administrator, who participated in the implementation of an unprecedented series of reforms that flattened the education system in a Canadian province and rebuilt it with a new mandate, examines learning from the shortcomings of the past and provides a critical enquiry that can help determine the success or failure of future reform efforts by shedding light on the obstacles to avoid, problems to correct, and methods to embrace in order to overcome hurt and disappointment in a turbulent environment and foster more caring and effective educational organizations. Few attempts have been made to write a book about women’s work from the perspective of those in senior leadership roles in education; others have written about it but not experienced it firsthand. This book illuminates the controversial debate between women and gender in education and challenges assumptions about equity and the caring and democratic nature of education. It contributes to a broader understanding and knowledge of the complexities of leadership work within education, which in turn can lead to improvement in professional relationships as well as organizational effectiveness. The book contains enlightening and compelling stories about the unique and shared experiences of people navigating turbulence within an organization. Author Mary Green draws on her career spent teaching and learning to provide a unique Canadian perspective and context. She offers a rigorous self, social, historical, and political reflection of educators, who despite experiencing particular challenges, draw purpose from faith in the possibilities and potential of more caring practice in education. The content will prove useful to those committed to infusing more humanity into work in education with reference to individuals, institutions, and the social and political challenges in the field. Specifically, this book is relevant to graduate students in faculties of education, policy makers, principals, other administrators, and organizational leaders. Universal issues of power and politics reveal interconnections between the personal and the global workplace, underscoring the importance of care in the workplace.

Athletic CEOs: Leadership in Turbulent Times is a book about high-performing transformational leaders operating in turbulent environments. These CEOs do not lead by the book: they may not praise their subordinates, provide positive feedback or regularly celebrate small wins. Yet they have created formidable enterprises that deliver sustainable growth, have elevated their companies’ employees to new levels, have set new standards for their industries and have advanced their regions. Most remarkably, in spite of their prominence, these leaders continue to reinvent themselves. Having studied them for a decade, Stanislav Shekshnia, Veronika Zagieva and Alexey Ulanovsky developed a model of athletic leadership which describes the leadership agendas, practices, outcomes and outputs of these leaders as well as unique attributes that make them effective.
