Leaders Made Here Book Excerpt:

Leaders Made Here Great leaders create great organizations. However, a scarcity of leaders today means a shortfall in performance tomorrow. Don't gamble with your company's future! You don't need to hope that leaders emerge from the ranks or that search firms can find the leaders you need in a timely fashion. Hope is not a strategy! You can build an organizational culture that will ensure your leadership pipeline is full and flowing. Bestselling author and Chick-fil-A executive Mark Miller describes how to nurture leaders throughout the organization, from the front lines to the executive ranks. Leaders Made Here outlines a clear and replicable approach to creating the leadership bench every organization needs. To bring his ideas to life, Miller uses the story of Blake, a new CEO, and Charles and old friend and colleague, as they search for the best practices from around the world to ensure a continuous supply of their most precious asset – leaders. Blake and his team then translate their findings into a practical plan that any organization can use to create a leadership culture, sustained competitive advantage, and long-term success.

In Pursuit of Foresight Book Excerpt:

The issue of failure of foresight is universal and world-wide. The really important question is whether, without hindsight, it is possible to avoid such failures. Many inquiry reports blame managers for the failures of foresight. These reports are founded on the premise that, with a little more thought, these oversights, which enabled the crisis to occur, would have been avoided. Is it really that simple? Here Mike Lauder provides executives with thinking tools to help them avoid missing the warning signs of the next crisis.

The Velvet Revolution at Work Book Excerpt:

What drives or delivers engaged people? Employers need to focus on creating the right conditions. Employers can't impose engagement: people need to choose to engage themselves. In The Velvet Revolution at Work, the follow-up to his best-selling The CEO: Chief Engagement Officer, John Smythe explains that the essential ingredient of the right conditions is a culture of distributed leadership which enables people at work to liberate their creativity to deliver surprisingly good results for their institution and themselves. Using models, examples and anecdotes from his client research he goes on to demonstrate exactly how to design an engagement process; one that is integrated with your business strategy and that is sustainable.

Towards Organizational Fitness Book Excerpt:

Work organizations can lose their fitness and become sick, just as people can. Just like people, they may become both physically and behaviourally sick; physically sick when plant and equipment breaks down or the money runs out; behaviourally sick when the resources are badly managed or the staff become alienated. Gerry Randell and John Toplis' Towards Organizational Fitness addresses two main issues: firstly, how to investigate and manage problems involving people at work - a task analogous to that of a medical doctor working with a sick patient; secondly, how to assess and develop the capability and fitness of an organization - like a medical doctor who wishes to improve a patient's health. The message of this book is clear, that organizations should not proceed to change any of their policies, procedures, processes or practices until a systematic thorough diagnosis of the root cause underpinning the need to change has taken place. The process of diagnosis that leads to a technically sound, administratively convenient, politically defensible and socially acceptable decision to change an organization in some way is fraught with difficulty. Towards Organizational Fitness provides managers with a conceptual and practical path through this complex and difficult arena.

Exercising Agency Book Excerpt:

Exercising Agency is a book about decision making. In particular, it looks in detail at how a very important type of organizational decision gets made: whether or not to initiate a project. Exercising Agency lifts the lid on many of the important behavioural factors that inform project decisions: power and politics, personality, the ‘rules’ of an organization. If you are involved in framing or making decisions about the future of your organization; the projects that you do or don’t decide to initiate, then read this book. It won’t make the decisions any easier but it will help you improve the quality of the decisions you make and over time, the effectiveness of your organizational decision making.

The Single Minded Project Book Excerpt:

The Single-Minded Project offers an approach to project management that is entirely complementary to the existing methodologies; one that recognises that at its heart, the management of a project relies on the perceived choices and methods, behaviours and decision-making of its players and the freedom of action that is permitted to the project regime. It fills in the gaps where the methodology doesn’t provide any kind of response to questions such as ‘how fast should we deliver this project’ and ‘how much diligence is appropriate in our decision-making’. It recognises that performance ultimately rests on human knowledge, resolve, skill and collaboration.

Management Practice and Creative Destruction Book Excerpt:

In Management Practice and Creative Destruction, Steven Segal changes our understanding both of management and research through his exploration of the concept of Creative Destruction. He explains how progress and development can also have negative and destructive effects within the same environment, and that in order to embrace new ways of doing things it is necessary to let go of the old. This is both frightening and exciting. The book finds new ways of looking at management and provides a framework for managers, management educators, theorists and researchers to turn moments of creative disruption into opportunities for curious inquiry into their practices. It fully explores a mode of inquiry that is only beginning to emerge in management research and theory.

Leading the Customer Experience Book Excerpt:

Leading the Customer Experience explores the relationship between leadership behaviour and exceptional service. Most organisation’s strategic aims and goals centre on the delivery of excellent service. Loyal customers not only keep buying from a company but also recommend the business to others.

How leaders behave has a direct impact on their team's motivation to go the extra mile to deliver excellent service for the customer. Sarah Cook’s vision for Leading the Customer Experience is to provide practical advice, tools and techniques for managers in how to effectively lead and motivate their team to deliver the best possible customer service. This book encapsulates her research on the behaviours of leaders who successfully create an environment where employees deliver exceptional service and she brings a pragmatic and business focused approach to the topic.

Reframing the Leadership Landscape Book Excerpt:

In an uncertain and complex world leaders should not merely respond to the speed of change but attempt to anticipate it. Sometimes it is unexpected, sometimes the signs are there but the dots are not joined together. The NEW normal must be navigated, negotiated, networked and a narrative built around it. Leaders need to adapt to a changing ecosystem in which the biggest challenges cross the boundaries of the public, private and non-profit sectors, requiring much closer collaboration. Aggressive individualism is no longer a sustainable basis for companies needing to deliver social and economic value, now, enterprises must move beyond narrow self-interest and short-termism to balance stakeholder expectations. In Reframing the Leadership Landscape, Dr Roger Hayes and Dr Reginald Watts argue that the interconnected and interdependent world requires leaders to adopt a more holistic and inclusive approach. Despite global business education advances, business mostly fails to make cross-disciplinary connections or interpret weak signals and is ill-prepared for changes in cultural and technical demands. The tool kit is here, ready to be unpacked. The only question is whether aspirant leaders are sensitive enough to read the signals and develop the skills needed to create an essential collaborative paradigm, which they must do if they wish to regain trust, fill the leadership void and help reshape a sustainable future.

The Rules of Project Risk Management Book Excerpt:

The discipline of project risk management is continually evolving and has matured over time. However within the literature there has been a disproportionate focus on process, techniques and statistical analysis at the expense of understanding how effective risk management is delivered. The Rules of Project Risk Management provides readers with practical insights in the form of guidelines or ‘rules’ to enhance effective delivery of a discipline which has been proven to directly contribute to securing a project’s objectives. A series of mini case studies are included to improve comprehension of the guidelines. The structure of the book has been designed to enable project and risk personnel and students alike to quickly appreciate and assimilate those aspects of risk management that warrant close scrutiny and comprehension. Robert Chapman’s advice is given with clarity and is based on very broad experience.

Corporate Community Involvement Book Excerpt:

There has been tremendous growth in Corporate Community Involvement (CCI) projects of all sizes in recent years. This has been encouraged by organisations such as Business in the Community in the UK, which provides information designed to motivate businesses and government to engage in CCI. In fact, the projects incorporated into some companies’ strategy implementation are now so extensive that they are having a profound impact on community development. Corporate Community Involvement examines CCI as a distinct type of corporate social responsibility and the nature of the relationship between business and society. Bilge Uyan-Atay considers that CCI has been poorly described and researched, concentrating mainly on Western Europe and the USA, failing to consider different institutional contexts and to make the best use of available theory to uncover a more holistic perspective. The author’s native Turkey is a secular, developing country with a growing economy. This provides a distinctive environment in which to study CCI. The author explores and analyses economic, strategic, cultural and institutional influences on CCI and its relationships to and differences from corporate social responsibility.
