The Tao of Dialogue Book Excerpt:

Contemporary writers position ‘dialogue’ at the heart of change theory, but what do we mean by ‘dialogue’? The Tao of Dialogue explains through story what dialogue means, and how to leverage dialogic principles in managing relationships within the workplace. Accessible and innovative, The Tao of Dialogue explains the basic principles of dialogue, defined as a way of thinking and reflecting together with others, through the story of Michael, the CEO of a company about to embark on a life-changing journey. In the first half of the book, he is introduced to the idea of dialogue by Hannah, an internal change practitioner working within the organisation. He is encouraged to engage in dialogue with those he seeks to influence, which requires him to examine his mindset and proactively make changes to the ways in which he is communicating with his team and the wider organisation. In the second half of the book Michael is assisted by Mark, an external consultant with expertise in dialogic team and organisational development, who helps him apply dialogic principles to leading his team. Engaging yet practical, each part concludes with a summary of the dialogue that has taken place and how the model can be used in the real world, as well as an overview of the journey of the organisation, team and individuals. Emerging from dialogue between seven experienced, international coaches, The Tao of Dialogue will be of interest to coaches in practice and training, as well as business leaders, HR and L&D professionals and consultants. It explains in simple terms how to transform human relationships, both one-to-one and team/group. It will also appeal to academics and students of coaching, executive development, change management and leadership development.

The Spiritual Philosophy of the Tao Te Ching argues two main points: (1) the Tao Te Ching is a spiritual (not religious) book, and (2) it presents an implicit systematic philosophy. If we piece together the Tao's implicit and explicit views, we'll find it offers a consistently reasoned answer to life's three ultimate questions, the origin, nature, and purpose of life. Based on its answer to these questions, it offers a philosophy of life the prime goal of which is reunion with the Tao.

Selling Spirituality Book Excerpt:

From Feng Shui to holistic medicine, from aromatherapy candles to yoga weekends, spirituality is big business. It promises to soothe away the angst of modern living and to offer an antidote to shallow materialism. Selling Spirituality is a short, sharp, attack on this fallacy. It shows how spirituality has in fact become a powerful commodity in the global marketplace - a cultural addiction that reflects orthodox politics, curbs self-expression and colonizes Eastern beliefs. Exposing how spirituality has today come to embody the privatization of religion in the modern West, Jeremy Carrette and Richard King reveal the people and brands who profit from this corporate hijack, and explore how spirituality can be reclaimed as a means of resistance to capitalism and its deceptions.

Responsible and Sustainable Business Book Excerpt:

This book claims that CSR is the Tao of sustainable enterprise development. It examines the intersection of practical wisdom of Taoism, CSR and Sustainability, looking at the theoretical and historical implications associated with a Taoist approach to CSR, sustainability and responsible leadership. Implications for sustainable enterprise development will be presented. The book analyzes perspectives found in Taoist classical texts and within the larger Chinese cultural context in order to delineate key issues found in the classical texts. Through these analyses, the book assesses the applicability of modern-day Taoism thought and practice in China and the West with respect to the contemporary sustainability situation. The book also explores the values, ideas and practices Taoism offers to inspire a new generation of leaders, and particularly business leaders to manage companies in a more social and sustainable way.

Easternization of the West Book Excerpt:

In this provocative and groundbreaking book, Colin Campbell shows that the civilization of the West is undergoing a revolutionary process of change, one in which features that have characterized the West for two thousand years are in the process of being marginalized, to be replaced by those more often associated with the civilizations of the East. Moving far beyond popular trends, Campbell assembles a powerful range of evidence to show how "Easternization" has been building throughout the last century, especially since the 1960s. Campbell demonstrates how it was largely in the 1960s that new interpretations in theology, political thought, and science were widely adopted by a new generation of young "culture carriers." This highly original and wide-ranging book advances a thesis that will be of interest to scholars in many disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

The Tao of Loyalty Book Excerpt:

In today's business environment, people, rather than products, technology and processes, are increasingly becoming the crucial factor in differentiating profitable organizations from those that are not. It is therefore important to understand employee commitment and loyalty in organizations. This book begins by defining loyalty, the types of loyalty (emotional and behavioural) and how these can be measured and interpreted. The author discusses the potency of combining the two types of loyalty to segment employees into different categories which can then yield loyalty rankings. He goes on to discuss the elements that can be tweaked and managed and which impact on the loyalty scores of an employee. This book concludes with the processes involved in building accountability in order to ensure that everyone in the organization is aligned to, and expends energy in, building employee loyalty.

A Practical Christology for Pastoral Supervision Book Excerpt:

This book sets out a Christological framework for developing and delivering pastoral supervision. Pastoral supervision is a key consideration for any denomination, congregation, or faith-based organisation, so this is a vital resource for well-being for clergy, chaplains, and a wide array of pastoral workers. Three central Christological themes, the revealing, re-membering, and restoring Jesus, provide the theological framework for good supervision practice. The book draws insights from three gospel passages––Luke 24:13–34, Luke 22:39–53 and John 21:1–14––for its Christological themes. The practical Christology for pastoral supervision is deepened and extended through three theologians: Martin Luther (reformed), Emil Brunner (neo-orthodox), and James McClendon (small B baptist). Professional supervision (coaching, mentoring, and spiritual direction) is increasingly sought––even required––by many people in church and faith-based organisations. This book will, therefore, be an excellent resource to theologians interested in supervision, practical theology, and Christology.

EBOOK Performance Coaching Toolkit Book Excerpt:

"Much more than an outstanding toolkit, this hand book is an essential and rich resource for professional coaches (new and experienced) and for leaders, managers and parents facilitating informal coaching conversations. Angus McLeod and Will Thomas have artfully distilled key frameworks and tools for facilitating sustainable performance, wellbeing and humanity in both coach and coachee. Jargon free and filled with immediately useable and highly impactful models, check-lists and downloadable resources, this guide will quickly become a well used and trusted companion." Michelle Duval – Managing DirectorEquilibrio International "It offers a wealth of wise suggestions from two highly experienced coaches and readers may choose to read it right through or dip into it using the List of Tools, Glossary and Index. The keys to effective coaching, in the view of McLeod and Thomas, are questioning, listening and silence; they offer a very nice and easy exercise enabling coaches to balance all three. Among the many other offerings I like are the tools for checking and working with coachees' emotions and the 17 'starter questions' for coaching conversations." Dr Susie Linder-Pelz, author of 'NLP Coaching’' (Kogan Page) The Performance Coaching Toolkit is a practical handbook for anyone wishing to improve their coaching skills. It is enriched by methods taken from the authors' understanding and development of practical learning techniques as well as from their work in education, personal development and within various commercial organizations. The approach of the book is concise and informative: all the tools sit within a practical framework for developing and enhancing your own coaching style. This framework is based on the STEPPPA Model which is built around: Subject focus Target focus Emotional focus Perception focus Plan focus Pace and Act focus The toolkit also provides a coherent and practical tool for keeping in touch with the coaching process as a structured journey. The layout has been designed to enable fast access to key information and the book has links to other related models and tools, so that the complexity of coaching processes, with time, becomes even more comprehensible. This toolkit is key reading for coaches and prospective coaches in all sectors, particularly those who want a rapid and accessible route to understanding coaching practice and who want a reliable source book for coaching methods.
