In Conversation with the Dalai Lama Greenleaf Publishing
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This book reflects over a decade of dialogue with the Dalai Lama, spanning the period before and after the economic crash. His Holiness the Dalai Lama rarely speaks directly on the topics of leadership, business and economics. Through this set of unique conversations between the Dalai Lama and business experts, we see that in the current business reality, where societal and environmental demands can no longer be ignored, the only way to create long-lasting value is by integrating sustainability principles in business strategy and operations.Through in-depth dialogue between His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a number of leading social and economic thinkers, this important book sheds light on the most pressing questions that we, as a global society and economy, now face. Can we achieve a harmonious society on this planet? Is it possible to be an effective and efficient business manager "and" an ethical manager? Can we attain a morally inclusive excellence?The book is unique in that it clearly makes the link between spirituality and the practical solutions needed to address many of the deep-rooted problems that we encounter across the globe, such as extreme social inequality and continued financial collapses. The dialogue, which has been on-going over the last 15 years, provides a snapshot in time of the development in thinking over this period. The dialogue reflects the author's own personal journey as a successful banker, who recognizes the importance of embedding values in business goals and activities.The book is a highly readable and intelligent exploration of how we can shape a sustainable global economy by embracing innate human and humane behavior, focusing on dialogue, understanding individual's motivations, and promoting personal leadership and a sense of responsibility. While recognizing the need for change in external structures and governance mechanisms, these inspirational conversations strongly highlight the importance of the untapped inner realm of leaders' mindsets to effect change. The Dalai Lama stresses the need to continually seek to understand reality and to find practical solutions which support our spiritual needs as individuals and a community. He achieves this in his now unmistakable joyful, engaging and light-hearted way. This book has the power to change your way of thinking.
Professional Pathways to the Presidency PALGRAVE MACMILLAN
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
During presidential elections a quadrennial debate emerges which, although it differs in the particulars, reflects the same structure in each reincarnation. Although the issue positions taken by the candidates vary over the years, their claim to qualification for the presidency follows a common pattern. Each candidate discusses his or her prior experience as preparation for one or more of the requirements of the office and then lays claim to the legacy of one of the great presidents who followed the same trajectory to the White House. Missing from this debate is a systematic analysis of how different job experiences prepared the population of all presidents for service. For each of the greats who followed a particular pathway to the presidents there is a failure who shared the pathway. In this book I combine the quantitative evaluation of presidential performance with mixture of qualitative and quantitative analyses of professional qualifications. The recent C-SPAN surveys provide us with a nuanced measure of presidential performance by asking historians to rate the Presidents on ten constituent attributes of: Public Persuasion, Moral Authority, Relations with Congress, Performance within Context of Times, Crisis Leadership, International Relations, Vision/Setting an Agenda, Economic Management, Administrative Skills, and Pursued Equal Justice for All. The sub-score for 'Relations with Congress' measures how well the president performs as 'legislator-in-chief' so that I can see whether former legislators work better with congress. Similarly the measure of 'Administrative Skills' indicates whether experience as a governor leads to better performance as the national chief executive. The evaluation of 'Economic Management' looks at whether those presidents with business experience do a better job in dealing with the economy. C-SPAN's nuanced measure of presidential performance allows a more careful evaluation of how prior experience affects particular aspects of presidential greatness than was previously possible.
