"Organizations continue to undergo rapid, intense change. And the revolution currently underway calls for more than broad participation by organizational members. A marked shift in leadership approach is required, a shift to pack leadership. The current models addressing leadership tend to focus on the energy and will of the head of the organization. True, strong leadership by the head of an organization is desired. But the demands of sweeping social, economic, and performance-cultural changes have moved the leadership focus throughout organizations." "This book outlines an effective leadership approach to create places of spirit and meaning. Using the wild dogs of Africa as a metaphor, a new and emerging leadership style is explored. Pack leaders take on the characteristics of a pack of wild dogs. Individual leaders of "wild dog"-type organizations have a strong sense of self-mastery coupled with humility. They seek enlivened spirits in the workplace, guiding the organization to a co-created vision. The authors also provide a collection of wild dog case studies at the end of some of the chapters to show how the concepts of pack leadership operate in a variety of organizational and team settings. Once readers understand the analogy and develop an appreciation for the traits of the wild dog, they will start seeing wild dogs everywhere!"--BOOK JACKET.

Scott's last Antarctic expedition is one of the great adventure stories of the twentieth century. On 1 November 1911, a British team set out on the gruelling 800-mile journey across the coldest and highest continent on Earth to travel to the South Pole. Five men battled through unimaginably harsh conditions only to find the Norwegian flag had been planted at the Pole just weeks before. Captain Robert Falcon Scott, Lieutenant Henry Bowers, Petty Officer Edgar Evans, Captain Lawrence Oates, and Dr Edward Wilson all died on the return trek, starved and frozen to death, only eleven miles from a supply camp. In November 1912, a rescue party discovered their last letters and diaries, which told a story of bravery, hardship, and self-sacrifice that shocked the world. Recent decades have seen controversy rage over whether Scott was the last of a line of great Victorian explorers, intent on discovering uncharted lands, or a hopeless incompetent driven by personal ambition. Rejecting the stereotypes, Max Jones reveals a complex figure, a product of the passions and preoccupations of an imperial age. He also shows how heroes are made and manipulated, through a close examination of the unprecedented outpouring of public grief at the news of the death of Scott and his companions. Max Jones uses fascinating new evidence and prevously unseen illustrations to take us back to this remarkable moment in modern history, and tells for the first time the full story of The Last Great Quest.

This volume celebrates the work of Laszlo Zsolnai, a leading researcher and scholar in the field of the ethical and spiritual aspects of economic life, who has made significant contributions to the connection between ethics, spirituality, aesthetics and economic theory. The book offers a selection of essays concerned with the ethical, spiritual and aesthetic context within which economics as a social studies discipline should be situated in order to avoid the sort of dehumanising consequences that theories based on utility maximisation and rational choice necessarily entail. It presents the economic activities of human beings not as some sort of preordained obedience to universal laws that operate independently of other human concerns, but, rather, as a part of the human desire for the Aristotelian good life. It looks at the various considerations –moral, spiritual and aesthetic – that take part in the formation of economic decisions in sharp contrast with theories that purport to explain economic phenomena solely on the basis of utility maximisation.
