Description : Since Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi published the groundbreaking Flow more than a decade ago, world leaders such as Tony Blair and former President Clinton, and influential sports figures like Super Bowl champion coach Jimmy Johnson have all been inspired by the book. In today's corporate upheaval, a new business paradigm is evolving. While many CEOs are being exposed for their greed, truly visionary leaders believe in a goal that benefits themselves as well as others. They realize that it is their vision and "soul" that attract loyal employees willing to go above and beyond the call of corporate duty. And their employees are realizing the same thing: while 80 percent of adults claim they'd work even if they didn't have to, the majority of them can hardly wait to leave their jobs and get home. Good Business starts with the premise that this is an age in which business and work have replaced religion and politics as central forces in contemporary life. The book reveals how business leaders, managers, and even employees can find their "flow" and contribute not only to their own happiness, but also to a just and evolving society. It identifies the factors crucial to the operation of a good business: trust, the commitment to fostering the personal growth of employees, and the dedication to creating a product that helps mankind. Good Business is sure to become a must-read text for anyone who values the positive contributions of individuals in the changing world of business.

Description : Global Business Leadership discusses the urgent issues facing global business leaders and presents seven strategies found necessary for successful intercultural business ventures. It provides business professionals and students with insight into the failure of businesses to prepare leaders for stepping into complex cultural contexts. The Geoleadership Model developed by Dr. Wibbeke is applied to global business situations using cases taken from leading companies such as Google and eBay. The book uses a case study format to present salient issues related to intercultural leadership and then principles of the model are applied to the case in discussion format. The concepts of care, communication, consciousness, change, capability and others are analyzed in relation to how each concept is seen in different parts of the business world. Each chapter concludes with a "bottom line" example of how each Geoleadership concept directly affects business results. Global Business Leadership also provides instruction about entry into cultural contexts, negotiating, preventing and managing cultural-based local-global conflict, and preparing global leaders to increase intercultural awareness and sensitivity. Dr. Wibbeke founded and managed the leading Internet website (Web of Culture) for cross-cultural information on the Internet and shares such global experiences with other would-be globetrotters.

Description : Congratulations on downloading 10 Skills for Effective Business Leadership and thank you for doing so. This book is a concise leadership guide that will help you in understanding the things you need to do to become an effective leader. It will give you a 10-step guide to transform your performance at work and get the most from your team.Effective leadership has the power to transform organizations, movements, and lives. Leaders who are able to transform the lives of people have been revered, loved, praised, and respected. They have brought a positive change in this world. They have made this world a better place to live in.Effective leaders inspire the masses and enable them to do jobs which they never thought themselves to be capable of accomplishing. They transform their lives and make them better. Effective leadership ensures that the followers or team members are able to improve their lives and skills to greater levels.Leaders do all this by the power of inspiration and influence. They do not use force or power of their position to have their way. They use the power of personal influence to get things done. Leaders are the enablers. They are the ones that inspire and motivate people.People say that some are born leaders. It is true to some extent that some people have a natural talent to lead. However, true leadership is a learned art. It isn't something that you simply know by yourself. True leadership comes to you through education, training, and experience.Being a leader may look like a rosy position, but it is a tough job. A leader is the one who has to make a lot of sacrifices. A leader has to assume the responsibility for the mistakes of others in command. He/She will have to give away the credit of the success to the people he/she has commanded. If you look at it closely, it looks like a pretty bad bargain.There is no doubt in the fact that the position of a leader has a lot of authority. However, ineffective leadership is a thankless job. You can end up being an eyesore. The people who are supposed to follow you can be mocking you behind your back. You can be the target of the scorn of all the people you command. People may praise you in your presence but may make you a punching bag of the jokes. Sadly, this is the case with many of the bosses around the world. The problem is that people assume the leadership roles without any training or education. They are not even suited for the position of being managers or administrators and they, all of a sudden, get the responsibility of leading others, and this where the hell breaks loose.From micromanaging the subordinates, team members, and coworkers to poking nose in everything for asserting authority failed bosses try everything, but to no avail. The work environments of such bosses remain miserable, unproductive, and soulless. You can prevent this by becoming an effective leader. An effective leader will infuse life into the team and will make it more lively and enjoyable. An effective leader has the ability to make projects turn around and bring charm. This book is a leadership guide that will help you in transforming your performance at work as an effective leader. It will give you a 10-step transformation mantra that will help you in making things work.The simple ideas given in the book will help you in bringing positive changes to your attitude and will also ensure that you are able to deliver results in a time-bound manner. There are plenty of books on this subject on the market, so thanks again for choosing this one! Every effort was made to ensure it is full of as much useful information as possible. Please enjoy!
