An introductory leadership textbook that guides students through the concept of leadership by design, a theory that involves planning each step of their leadership development, focusing on practical skills and valuable attributes that will maximize their leadership success now and into the future. Organized around five major design challenges, each challenge is explored in a stand-alone module. Students begin the leadership journey with themselves, understanding their own strengths, styles, and skills. The text moves on to relationships, exploring how leadership is a process that involves values, decision-making, motivation, and power. A module on others’ success unpacks the most effective practices of leadership and management, this is followed by a module on leading culture, teams, and community, before concluding with a section on how leaders can create lasting, positive change. The book covers foundational leadership topics with a strong emphasis on skill building and helping develop CORE competencies: confidence, optimism, resiliency, and engagement. Students are encouraged to develop these skills through experiential learning, with multiple features in each chapter such as reflective and scenario-based exercises, and case studies of internationally recognized companies like Amazon and Proctor & Gamble, along with interviews with Fortune 500 Company CEOs. There are online resources for instructors and students, which include: Test bank, PowerPoint slides, an instructor manual, teaching tips, answers to in-text questions, multimedia resources, quiz questions, and flashcards. Suitable reading for first and second year undergraduates on Leadership, Introduction to Leadership, and Leading Organizations courses

This book argues that separation consciousness has kept a collective demand for corporate social responsibility at bay, even providing justification for business to neglect society. Yet there are signs that separation consciousness is being replaced with the expectation that businesses engage in symbiotic relationships with stakeholders that yield triple bottom line benefits. The potential for business to enact this social contract depends largely on the ability of top executives to discover how to activate the organizational values that make such benefits possible. The author argues that the required mind-set for this task bears a strong resemblance to the scientific discovery mentality, and that if executives were to embed this mentality in organizational decision making, shared consciousness between firms and stakeholders of the values that support corporate responsibility is feasible. CSR Discovery Leadership examines this prospect of shared value consciousness, a new frontier for CSR leadership.

Leadership Meta Competencies Book PDF/Epub Download

This book doesn't offer overrated success stories which in most cases cannot be imitated. It contains no check lists or recipes for success and it presents no theoretically-based models. The meta-competencies discussed in this refreshing book are timeless virtues of which effective leaders seem to possess, but which are rarely if ever included in lists of competencies in the vast business leadership literature. They include: Existential intelligence - distinct from the much discussed emotional intelligence, is about the ability to pose questions and reflect on fundamental issues in ways that develop a mature ability to interpret the world and better understand other people. Phronesis - is the ability to exercise sound judgement based on skilful application of moral and political rationality. Solitude - is a voluntary state achieved when an individual has the ability to momentarily withdraw and be free of external pressures and demands in order to concentrate on desired mental-cognitive activities. Trust building - is more often discussed in leadership literature. As a leadership competence it is about the ability to be credible, show trust in and respect for other people and inspire trust. For the curious business practitioner, business student, or business educator wishing to consider aspects of leadership competence that have to some extent been hidden or forgotten, this book introduces the notion of meta-competences and deals in detail with them.

Topics such self-presentation, trust, humor, sense-making, power, influence, persuasion, social exchange, empathy, politics, followership, and ethics are all presented in relative isolation to allow for examination; but in reality, leadership is a swirling, messy, interacting, blending, compounding of all of these factors and more. At the conclusion of each chapter, is a short vignette that illustrates the chapter concepts.

"Each of us lives and works in organizations designed from Newtonian images of the universe", Margaret Wheatley writes in this groundbreaking book. "Our assumptions come to us from seventeenth-century physics, from Newtonian mechanics. . . . But the science has changed. If we are to continue to draw from the sciences to create and manage organizations, then we need to at least ground our work in the science of our times. We need to stop seeking after the universe of the seventeenth century and begin to explore what has become known to us in the twentieth century". Wheatley takes the reader on a mind-opening journey into the "new science" - the revolutionary discoveries in quantum physics, chaos theory, and molecular biology that are changing our understanding of the universe. And she applies these scientific concepts to offer new light on the fundamental issues of organizing work, people, and life, including: how can we find order in a chaotic world?; how is order different than control?; how can we create more participative, open, and adaptive organizations?; how can we reconcile individual autonomy and organizational control?; and what leads to organizational growth and self-renewal instead of decline and death?

Children in today's world are inundated with information about who to be, what to do and how to live. But what if there was a way to teach children how to manage priorities, focus on goals and be a positive influence on the world around them? The Leader in Meis that programme. It's based on a hugely successful initiative carried out at the A.B. Combs Elementary School in North Carolina. To hear the parents of A. B Combs talk about the school is to be amazed. In 1999, the school debuted a programme that taught The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Peopleto a pilot group of students. The parents reported an incredible change in their children, who blossomed under the programme. By the end of the following year the average end-of-grade scores had leapt from 84 to 94. This book will launch the message onto a much larger platform. Stephen R. Covey takes the 7 Habits, that have already changed the lives of millions of people, and shows how children can use them as they develop. Those habits -- be proactive, begin with the end in mind, put first things first, think win-win, seek to understand and then to be understood, synergize, and sharpen the saw -- are critical skills to learn at a young age and bring incredible results, proving that it's never too early to teach someone how to live well.

The story told in The Imperfect Leader is timely...it's relevant...it's powerful...and it will challenge the way you think about leadership. It is a story that reveals a new model for transformational leadership-one that flies in the face of conventional wisdom, creates healthy corporate cultures, and delivers extraordinary, sustainable results. It is a story about the personal journey transformational leaders must take in order to be true to themselves-to be in touch with themselves-and to find at journey's end that it's not about them. The Imperfect Leader will resonate with leaders at all levels and in every walk of life. It guides, equips and motivates leaders, young and old, to understand the necessity for personal transformation that is required for leaders to make a difference in their organizations. George Gallup, Jr. (The Gallup Organization) said this about The Imperfect Leader: "There is one true and effective model for leadership that outperforms all others-it is time-tested and historically proven to be the leadership model for transformational change. In The Imperfect Leader, Taylor offers an interesting, well written articulation of that model. It is a very practical book that should be read by any leader seriously intending to make a difference-in their organization-or in the world."
