Organizations today are awash in change. Managing change requires leaders to focus simultaneously on managing the business and providing effective leadership to the people. More often than not, it is the focus on the people side that loses out. This book offers a framework for understanding the issues and competencies that contribute to effective leadership during times of change. Its purpose is to help leaders determine how to choose and move among a variety of managerial approaches--to help them see what's working, what's not working, and what's missing. In this way, leaders can more clearly assess their impact and learn how to meet the demands of both managing the business and leading the people.

Leaders are constantly challenged with the daunting task of managing ongoing change and transition. Not only do they need to cope with the structural side (creating a vision, reorganizing, and restructuring), but they are also on the frontlines of the people part of change (grieving, letting go, building hope, and learning). The Leading Through Transitions Participant Workbook provides leaders with the important information and the tools needed to develop the key leadership skills that are so critical while facing unrelenting change. As a participant in a dynamic one-day workshop leaders will be introduced to Authentic Leadership Paradox Wheel, and will learn what it takes to balance the dynamic tension between six pairs of seemingly paradoxical leadership attributes: Being tough while simultaneously expressing appropriate empathy Catalyzing change while understanding transition Expressing a sense of urgency while retaining the capacity for realistic patience Being self-reliant yet trusting others Radiating both optimism and realism Capitalizing on strengths while fostering the capacity to go against the grain Leading Through Transitions Participant Workbook will give leaders the confidence to more clearly assess their impact and learn how to meet the demands of both managing the business and leading their people.

Two, describe the other person's behavior you observed in that situation. And third, describe the impact that behavior had on you. The result is a message that is clear and that can inspire action and productive change.

The interactions of educational institutions are examined at local, national and global levels with case studies and examples being drawn from many countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.

The second investigates the idea of learning for all and explores the ways in which leadership and management can contribute towards the development and enhancement of student learning, staff development and institutional growth. The authors, who are mainly drawn from the Institute of Education, University of London, make full use of the whole range of international literature relating to educational leadership, management and administration providing a textbook for masters-level students.

THE JOURNEY MATTERS AS MUCH AS THE DESTINATION. Scrap the map and go full throttle. Most leadership books tell you how to set and achieve goals. This one is different.

Her name is Elise Mitchell, and she wants to tell you about her journey—from starting her own agency to building a world-class brand to enjoying the ride along the way. But mostly, she wants to talk to you about your journey... Ask yourself: WHERE DO YOU WANT TO GO? Pick a destination. Not just for your career, but for your life. Answer this: HOW DO YOU PLAN TO GET THERE? Look at the road ahead. Then plot your course. But be prepared for some major twists, turns, and detours. Most importantly: ARE YOU ENJOYING THE JOURNEY? If not, maybe you need to throw away the map. Restart your engine. And get ready for the ride of your life. Whether you’re just stepping into leadership an accomplished leader seeking something more, or simply stalled along the way, Mitchell’s refreshing approach to modern leadership will help you navigate the curves and pit stops on your own path to fulfillment. You don’t need a motorcycle. You just need to get revved up for the road ahead.

From examinations of Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now to Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo, The Literature Film Reader: Issues of Adaptation covers a wide range of films adapted from other sources. The first section presents essays on the hows and whys of adaptation studies, and subsequent sections highlight films adapted from a variety of sources, including classic and popular literature, drama, biography, and memoir. The last section offers a new departure for adaptation studies, suggesting that films about history-often a separate category of film study-can be seen as adaptations of records of the past. The anthology concludes with speculations about the future of adaptation studies. Several essays provide detailed analyses of films, in some cases discussing more than one adaptation of a literary or dramatic source, such as The Manchurian Candidate, The Quiet American, and Romeo and Juliet. Other works examined include Moby Dick, The House of Mirth, Dracula, and Starship Troopers, demonstrating the breadth of material considered for this anthology. Although many of the essays appeared in Literature/Film Quarterly, more than half are original contributions. Chosen for their readability, these essays avoid theoretical jargon as much as possible. For this reason alone, this collection should be of interest to not only cinema scholars but to anyone interested in films and their source material. Ultimately, The Literature Film Reader: Issues of Adaptation provides an excellent overview of this critical aspect of film studies.

Across the country, highly competitive, self-directed work teams (SDWTs) are chalking up astonishing productivity gains. These work teams are replacing entrenched, autocratic, boss-driven organizations whose management styles are obsolete. Driving these remarkable workplace success stories is a new breed of supervisor who empowers teams through example and commitment, instead of by demanding obedience and control. Drawing upon the actual experiences of hundreds of team leaders in such self-directed workplaces as Kodak, Apple, Corning, Shell, and many others, Leading Self-Directed Work Teams reveals how supervisors in any company - large or small - an take advantage of the career-boosting leadership skills that make and keep major corporations competitive. This timely book takes a refreshingly candid look at the challenges, intricacies, and rewards of changing from a traditional supervisor to a confident SDWT leader. It focuses on hundreds of practical, time-tested techniques for developing the business, interpersonal, and technical capabilities of any team. And it explains step-by-step how you can master such crucial team leadership skills as coaching, business analysis, barrier busting, facilitating groups, customer advocacy, accessing information, and much more. Along the way, the author profiles the most innovative team leader practices learned from Kodak's 13 Room and Procter & Gamble experiments, demonstrating the remarkable benefits of managing by principle rather than by policy, and setting boundaries that change as the team matures. Leading Self-Directed Work Teams guides you confidently through each of the five evolutionary phases most SDWTs experience during their maturation, detailing the specific skills and behaviors required to meet this sequence of challenges. For exceptional utility, it provides a weekly activity guide to help team leaders remember critical activities, supplies a special chapter focusing on "3 days in the life of a team leader," and shows how to quickly test and interpret your thoughts and behaviors about team leadership. Whether you're a supervisor or CEO - whether your team is a small group of office workers or a Fortune 100 company - discover how to excite, energize, and inspire team members by developing the vision and guiding principles for effective team leadership; fostering coordination, clarity, and consistency without restricting autonomy and creativity; giving and obtaining feedback in a constructive, nondefensive manner; ending temper flare-ups, grievances, and eroding trust among team members; dealing with team members, peers, and senior managers resistant to the new work paradigm; deciding when appropriate management intervention is not only acceptable, but required; and making decisions in real time without traditional wasted periods. In today's rapidly changing marketplace, the competitive edge belongs to those organizations that capitalize on the full potential of their human and technical resources. Leading Self-Directed Work Teams gives you the skills, insights, and confidence to adapt to today's indispensable leader-facilitator role and guide newly empowered, participative teams to their full potential.
