Book Description :

This self-help book introduces a number of scenarios that incorporate the behaviors supported by the ISLLC Standards. Its effective case scenario approach prepares prospective school leaders to address actual school challenges that occur on a daily basis. In addition, it familiarizes readers with the ISSLC Standards and enables them to conduct a self-assessment relative to meeting those standards. Unlike similar texts, the author provides responses to difficult and challenging issues that are grounded in theory and supported by best practice. This enables learners to examine, compare, and make decisions about well-documented responses and in turn, apply their own ideas. Chapter topics include Leadership in Today's Schools, Organizational Influences on Leadership, Communication in Today's Schools, Decision-Making: Quality and Acceptance, Managing Conflict in Today's Schools, and Facilitating Change in Schools. For education professionals preparing for leadership roles.

Book Description :

Over a decade ago, Kim Cameron and some colleagues decided that rather than analyze what went terribly wrong with organizations and how to prevent it, they would look at what went extraordinarily right and how to replicate it. This was the birth of positive organizational scholarship, a new field that focused on what they called “positive deviance” -- outcomes that far exceeded normal success. In his previous book Positive Leadership, Cameron outlined four leadership strategies -- Positive Climate, Positive Relationships, Positive Communications, and Positive Meaning -- that characterize exceptionally high-performing organizations. Here he takes these strategies further by laying out tactics for implementing them. Study after study (some of which are cited in the book) has shown that companies practicing positive leadership far outperform their competitors. So virtue may be its own reward, but it also delivers breakthrough results that any organization can achieve thanks to Kim Cameron’s concise, how-to guide.

Book Description :

Not many industry revolutions begin with a typical married couple who risk everything to do something they've never done before. But that is exactly what Art and Lori Barter did in 2004 when they purchased Datron World Communications. The husband and wife knew everything about the power of strong values and the lack of values in modern corporations, but nothing about running a large-scale business that was -- at the time -- losing money. It was a test of faith and perseverance unlike any other. Everything from financial security to spiritual fulfillment was on the line. The Art of Servant Leadership II instructs modern business leaders on how to transform their businesses to servant-led organizations that prioritize integrity over profitability and never-ending quests to accumulate power. By integrating the servant-led paradigm into their inner lives and professional thinking, today's leaders can revolutionize heartless corporate strategies that reward the few at the expense of the many. Today, Datron World Communications is a multimillion-dollar, multicultural, international company with customers in more than eighty countries. That success is the result of the lessons taught in The Art of Servant Leadership II and proof that serving others with compassion and humility brings unprecedented rewards.

Book Description :

In every passing moment (whether you are aware of it or not) you are in either your Endogenic or Exogenic state of mind. Depending on which state you are in, you feel, think, and act differently. These differences affect how others experience you. They shape your character traits and your path in life. In The Duogenic Leader, Dr. Aebi-Magee presents her innovative and ground-breaking psychological theory about our two states of mind and describes how this discovery can rapidly advance leadership, innovation, intelligence, and personal power. Learning to choose between Endogenic and Exogenic unlocks a realm of self-awareness and psychological knowledge. In an inspiring and uplifting way, Dr. Aebi-Magee guides readers to a new understanding of themselves and others that is clear and thought-provoking. As a leadership consultant for two decades, Dr. Aebi-Magee has helped successful leaders improve their companies, advance their careers, boost strategic thinking, and become greater leaders. A native of Switzerland, Dr. Aebi-Magee has a PhD and masters in psychology from the University of Zürich and earned the title of Psychoanalyst in association with the Freud Institute and the Psychoanalytical Institute of Zürich. The Duogenic Leader takes you on a journey of human discovery. Seeing the Endogenic and Exogenic states in yourself and others leads to startling realizations about awareness, confidence, and authenticity that help you live a richer and more meaningful life. For business professionals, this manifests in a new and deeper understanding of human dynamics, communication, charisma, and leadership. Reading The Duogenic Leader triggers frequent contemplation. It inspires ideas about how you might unlock your innovative potential, overcome self-imposed limitations, better understand others, solve problems faster, have less confusion in life, advance your intelligence, improve your relationships with others, be a better parent, advance your career faster, prevent dysfunctional behavior, find more joy, and lead a more fulfilling life. Critical of Exogenic dominance in society and rich with sharp human observations, The Duogenic Leader offers profound clarity and insight for anyone who wants to advance personally or professionally. Broken into two distinct parts, The Duogenic Leader makes an academic subject fully accessible. Part One precisely explains the underlying dynamics and introduces the new terms "Endogenic" and "Exogenic" to describe the two states of being in which we experience every moment of life. Part Two illustrates more than fifty specific situations that show you how to spot repeating patterns of these dynamics in all aspects of work and life. The author sheds new light on topics like collaboration, trust, confidence, authority, innovation, learning, love, motivation, manipulation, authenticity, power, fear, and dozens of other issues important to business, leadership, and self-development.

Book Description :

Abstract - Business leaders often leave more than half of the world's population-the bottom of the pyramid (BOP), a $5-trillion market of potential consumers-untapped for products and services on account of failing to see BOP markets as profitable for business, yet business leaders who have managed inclusive BOP marketing in Nigeria have experienced profit margins as high as 120%. The purpose of this multiple case study was to explore strategies of business leaders who market to BOP consumers in Nigeria and maintain a profit. The study population consisted of 3 business leaders in the Dallas and Fort Worth metropolitan area who marketed to BOP consumers in Nigeria and maintained a profit. The conceptual framework that grounded the study was BOP marketing theory. Data were collected through semistructured in-depth interviews and company documents, with member checking implemented to strengthen creditability and trustworthiness. Based on the methodological triangulation of the data sources collected, 3 emergent themes were identified following 5 stages of data analysis. The themes were (a) maintain low profit margins in marketing essential items to the BOP in Nigeria, (b) maintain high profit margins in marketing to the non-BOP in Nigeria, and (c) market scaled-down products to the BOP in Nigeria. The findings from this study may contribute to social change by providing insights and strategies for business leaders seeking to prepare for and sustain profitability. The data from this study may contribute to higher profit margins for business leaders as well as job placement and entrepreneurship opportunities for the communities of Nigeria.
