Why is my jumper depreciating? Why are people so f***ing hung up about swearing? Why do the asterisks in that sentence make it okay? Why do so many people want to stop other people doing things, and how can they be stopped from stopping them? Why is every film and TV programme a sequel or a remake? Why are we so reliant on perpetual diversion that someone has created chocolate toothpaste? Is there anything to be done about the Internet? These and many other questions trouble David Mitchell as he delights us with a tour of the absurdities of modern life - Ryanair to Downton Abbey, sports day to smoking, Poundland to phone etiquette, UKIP to hotdogs made of cats. Funny, provocative and shot through with refreshing amounts of common sense - drawn from Mitchell's Observer columns and including new material - Thinking About it Only Makes It Worse celebrates and commiserates on the state of things in our not entirely glorious nation.

From the bestselling author of Blink and The Tipping Point, Malcolm Gladwell's Outliers: The Story of Success overturns conventional wisdom about genius to show us what makes an ordinary person an extreme overachiever. Why do some people achieve so much more than others? Can they lie so far out of the ordinary? In this provocative and inspiring book, Malcolm Gladwell looks at everyone from rock stars to professional athletes, software billionaires to scientific geniuses, to show that the story of success is far more surprising, and far more fascinating, than we could ever have imagined. He reveals that it's as much about where we're from and what we do, as who we are - and that no one, not even a genius, ever makes it alone. Outliers will change the way you think about your own life story, and about what makes us all unique. "Gladwell is not only a brilliant storyteller; he can see what those stories tell us, the lessons they contain". (Guardian). "Malcolm Gladwell is a global phenomenon ...he has a genius for making everything he writes seem like an impossible adventure." (Observer). "He is the best kind of writer - the kind who makes you feel like you're a genius, rather than he's a genius". (The Times). Author, journalist, cultural commentator and intellectual adventurer, Malcolm Gladwell is a staff writer for the New Yorker magazine. His first book The Tipping Point captured the world's attention with its theory that a curiously small change can have unforeseen effects. His other international bestselling books are Outliers, which looks at the stories of exceptional individuals and reveals the secrets of their success, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking and What The Dog Saw, a collection of his most provocative and entertaining New Yorker pieces.

Douglas McGregor, Revisited - 2834150221

Douglas McGregor, Revisited John Wiley & Sons Inc

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The words of Douglas McGregor, one of the fore-fathers of management theory and one of the top business thinkers of all time, cannot and should not be ignored. McGregor's vision of a more humanistic workplace may not have been widely accepted over three decades ago, but technological advancements that McGregor himself anticipated have paradoxically helped companies become more human. Viewing employees not as cogs in the machine but as living beings with individual goals-what McGregor called "the human side of the enterprise"-has proven to provide a remarkable competitive advantage. Now, with the rise of the networked economy, the growing power of frontline workers, and the shift in power from mass producer to individual consumer, authors Gary Heil, Warren Bennis, and Deborah Stephens assert that McGregor's ideas are more important and relevant than ever before. Douglas McGregor, Revisited emphasizes McGregor's lasting influence and updates his thinking with new concepts, fresh strategies, and modern implementation. This timely work traces McGregor's original thinking, which has emerged in current approaches that stress distributed leadership, open-minded appraisal techniques, and employee/customer commitment. Highlighted throughout with gems of wisdom in McGregor's own words, the book describes the value of his theories for today's managers. The authors carefully outline how to put McGregor's thinking into practice in your own business so you can: Devise a better performance management system Form and supervise effective management teams Build cooperation instead of internal competition Cultivate an intrinsically motivating, values-driven workplace Create a cause worthy of employee commitment Also featured are examples from a host of companies and leaders who have flourished under McGregor's approach. Authoritative and highly instructive, Douglas McGregor, Revisited offers new generations of managers important lessons from history and from the field. Praise for Douglas McGregor, Revisited "This book revisits in a contemporary manner the most important question facing management today: given what we know about human nature, how should work be managed so as to unleash the vast creative potential of human beings? The evidence is overwhelming that many people either come to an organization or can be appropriately led to exhibit the behavior McGregor characterized as 'Theory Y.' This book provides a 'how-to' approach for developing people at work and for establishing high performance organizations."-Joseph A. Maciariello, Horton Professor of Management Peter F. Drucker Graduate School of Management, Claremont Graduate University and Claremont McKenna College. Author of Lasting Value: Lessons from a Century of Agility at Lincoln Electric Douglas McGregor's seminal works, The Human Side of the Enterprise and The Professional Manager, debunked Taylorism and described a revolutionary way to manage people. He was the first to apply the findings in behavioral science to the world of business. Based on what had been learned about human behavior, McGregor explored the implications of managing people in a different manner than tradition dictated. The nature of work today makes McGregor's ideas more relevant than ever before. This important book applies his thinking to today's business world, proving again that the human aspect of work is crucial to organizational effectiveness. It also suggests how you can change your thinking and implement his ideas in your own business and workplace.

Evocative Coaching JOSSEY BASS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There's a lot of conversation about how to make schools better. Unfortunately, the nature of those conversations often makes things worse. Evocative Coaching: Transforming Schools One Conversation at a Time maps out a way to change that. By taking a teacher-centered, no-fault, strengths-based approach to performance improvement, the Evocative Coaching model generates the motivation and movement that enables teachers and schools to achieve desired outcomes and enhance quality of life. Viewed as a dynamic dance, the model is choreographed in four steps Story, Empathy, Inquiry, Design which are each laid out in its own chapter with powerful illustrative materials and end-of-chapter discussion questions to prompt further reflection. Bringing together the best research and wisdom in educational leadership and professional coaching, authors Bob and Megan Tschannen-Moran have developed a simple yet profound way of facilitating new conversations in schools through Story Listening, Expressing Empathy, Appreciative Inquiry, and Design Thinking. It's an iterative process that moves beyond old ways of thinking, doing, and being. It's an inspirational process that reinvigorates the passion for making schools better, one conversation at a time. This happens when coaches:* give teachers our full, undivided attention;* accept and meet teachers where they are right now, without making them wrong;* ask and trust teachers to take charge of their own learning and growth;* make sure teachers are talking more than we are;* enable teachers to appreciate the positive value of their own experiences;* harness the strengths teachers have to meet challenges and overcome obstacles;* reframe difficulties and challenges as opportunities to learn and grow;* invite teachers to discover possibilities and find answers for themselves;* dialogue with teachers regarding their higher purpose for teaching;* uncover teachers' natural impulse to engage with colleagues and students;* assist teachers to draw up a personal blueprint for professional mastery;* support teachers in brainstorming and trying new ways of doing things;* maintain an upbeat, energetic, and positive attitude at all times;* collaborate with teachers to design and conduct appropriate learning experiments;* enable teachers to build supportive environments and teams;* use humor to lighten the load; and* inspire and challenge teachers to go beyond what they would do alone. Each chapter provides a research-based theory to support the strategies presented, and includes specific suggestions and anecdotes. The Evocative Coaching model makes coaching enjoyable by getting people to focus on what they do best, and it invites larger, more integral conversations so that people talk about their work in the context of other things they care about. Resting on strong, evidence-based practices, the Evocative Coaching model offers educators the help they need to meet the challenges of increased accountability and expectations. This model can also be used effectively by coaches and leaders in other organizational contexts. Table of Contents:* Chapter 1: What Is Evocative Coaching?* Chapter 2: Coaching Presence*Loop I: The No-Fault Turn* Chapter 3: Story Listening* Chapter 4: Expressing Empathy*Loop II: The Strengths-Building Turn* Chapter 5: Appreciative Inquiry* Chapter 6: Design Thinking* Chapter 7: Aligning Environments* Chapter 8: Coaching Conversations* Chapter 9: The Reflective Coach To learn more about Evocative Coaching and to sign up for the Evocative Coach Training Program, visit www.SchoolTransformation.com.

Opis - Paris, near the turn of 1932-3. Three young friends meet over apricot cocktails at the Bec-de-Gaz bar on the rue Montparnasse. They are Jean-Paul Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir and their friend Raymond Aron, who opens their eyes to a radical new way of thinking..."It"s not often that you miss your bus stop because you"re so engrossed in reading a book about existentialism, but I did exactly that...The story of Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Heidegger et al is strange, fun and compelling reading. If it doesn"t win awards, I will eat my copy". (Independent on Sunday). "Bakewell shows how fascinating were some of the existentialists" ideas and how fascinating, often frightful, were their lives. Vivid, humorous anecdotes are interwoven with a lucid and unpatronising exposition of their complex philosophy...Tender, incisive and fair". (Daily Telegraph). "Quirky, funny, clear and passionate...Few writers are as good as Bakewell at explaining complicated ideas in a way that makes them easy to understand". (Mail on Sunday).

Opis - Happiness is like the answer to a riddle. The more we want it and the more we seek it, the more elusive it becomes. And yet, when we are least conscious of looking for it, it can envelop us in a warm sense of contentment and belonging, making a single moment precious and valuable beyond measure. A feeling of happiness has the power to light up our whole being. Scientists will tell us that happiness has the power to heal and to extend life. It is the ingredient we all seek to make our lives complete. Like the air we breathe, we are not conscious that we need it, until it disappears. Happiness makes us feel glad to be alive. The Little Pocket Book of Happiness offers you a more joyous approach to living and thinking; a shift in approach that may reframe your view of the world; simple things you can do to reconsider your life"consciously"so that you can decide whether now is the time when you can be happier. It includes strategies to warm the heart and open the mind to the extraordinary power of happiness. It shares the experiences of others and provides the closest we might have to a happiness "formula". The good news is, happiness is within everyone?s grasp.

'The book is an excellent read as it provides both ideas and suggestions to empower leaders in the education system. Increasingly, more and more academics write for each other and not for the practitioners who lead our schools, so this is a refreshing book. In an era of some anti-leadership books it is refreshing to read ideas that build bridges to practitioners in order to improve schools. The book is an outstanding contribution to the resource base for leaders in schools and the wider education system' - Professor Brent Davies, International Journal of Education Management 'Michael Fullan's books - and this is no exception - are for educational policy makers, practitioners and researchers what J K Rowling's Harry Potter books are for children and parents. This is one of the best and most useful' - Tim Brighouse 'Michael Fullan has produced another powerful and inspirational book. He has the wonderful knack of continually positioning himself a couple of steps ahead of the fields.By so doing, he is able to challenge and lead thinking and thereby accelerate productive new developments' - David Hopkins, Royal Holloway University of London 'An ambitious and provocative journey into the complexities and possibilities that arise when leadership and sustainability join' - Roland S Barth, Lessons Learned (Corwin Press 2003) 'No one has contributed more to our understanding of leadership and change than Michael Fullan. Leadership & Sustainability continues that tradition - a brilliant analysis of a timely topic' - Thomas J Sergiovanni, Lillian Radford Professor of Education, Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas 'Efforts at education reform have taken us down a variety of paths, and Michael Fullan has consistently noted the importance of leadership to large-scale reform. In his latest book, Leadership & Sustainability, Fullan makes a solid case that such reform is a complex process involving many variables. Key among these variables is the relationship between leadership and sustainability' - Vincent L Ferrandino, Executive Director, National Association of Elementary School Principals.Alexandria, Vancouver 'With knowledgeable savvy from both individual leadership and system transformation, and a knack for writing in "plain-speak," Michael Fullan helps us understand that it will be "leadership" (not leaders) that pave the way for great sustainability. His attempt to link abstract concepts to concrete examples of what it looks like in practice was successful' - Theodore B Creighton, Director, Center for Research and Doctoral Studies, Sam Houston State University, Executive Director, National Council of Professors of Education Administration 'Michael Fullan has gone beyond his past research that described the change process so insightfully to a new and exciting exploration of how systems thinking and the "long lever of leadership" can bring about deep and lasting reforms in schools and schooling. This brand of leadership for sustainability, as described by Fullan, results in the "deep learning" that enables schools to respond successfully to the revolution in expectations they now face.This new work will both inform and inspire educators to become the "new theoreticians" whose impact will be felt in their schools every day' - David T Conley, Associate Professor, Educational Leadership and Policy, Director, Center for Educational Policy Research, College of Education, University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon 'Leadership & Sustainability is a critical breakthrough. Michael Fullan has utilized findings from some of the best research and observations in education over the past fifteen years to brilliantly illuminate the challenges of creating schools capable of continuous organic change and improvement' - James P Comer, Maurice Falk Professor of Child Psychiatry, Yale Child Study Center, Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut Leadership & Sustainability will examine how the opportunity for new leadership can be leveraged to focus on sustainability of reform, and will identify barriers and strategies for moving in new directions. This book will define the meaning of "sustainability" and the large scale it plays in reform. It explains the myriad facets of continuous improvement and the key characteristics of the dynamics in sustainability.This book explores the two-way street relationship between individual leadership and system transformation. It will explain how each must feed on each other in order for the relationship to succeed.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject Business economics - Business Management, Corporate Governance, grade: 1,7, Hamburg University of Applied Sciences, course: Marketing Strategien, language: English, abstract: In a business context, it is inevitable that one of the main words one would hear is competition. In a way doing business is like participating in a competition for market share, profits etc. Even one of the basic theories of trade, the one of Ricardo, speaks about the competitive advantage and its importance. But how to become successful in doing business? Does a recipe exist which guarantees that a business could thrive and be successful? On the one hand one could argue that business opportunities arise from the environment, lead by an invisible hand and the essentials of doing business are similar to the one centuries ago and that people do not have substantial influence. On the other hand, others would argue that the success of a business is predominantly result of the well-prepared planning and in that way is connected more to the human (merchant s) abilities rather than to the environment itself.Surely, the centuries of business history has shown that answering the question what makes a business successful does not have a clear answer. It would be very shallow way of thinking to give a simple answer to this question. Surely, the environment plays an important role for the business but the other way round, doing business is not a random game. In contrast, only thinking strategically without being in the appropriate environment and without any resources, it is quite impossible to set up a successful business. Furthermore, the business environment is not static but instead very dynamic. As the time passes by, businesses change and what was true about business success centuries or even a decades ago, is not true any more. At the same time, it does not mean that business now and in the past has nothing in common. On the contrary, nowadays the business and management science is so complex and possesses sophisticated methodology and tools which help to prove that the strategical way of thinking in the context of doing business is an essential part of the success of a company. And even the understanding of business strategy is different because it could range from simple planning to the application of very complex scientific business models. However, as the business environment changes, so do the business strategies as well. That s why some of the often considered for true strategies, seem to be out-of-date with the business reality. For that reason, if a strategy does not work, one has to check it again.

'This is a challenging book and makes for uncomfortable reading at times because one realises that there is so much more to be accomplished in education. How can the teacher who wants to follow this further find out more? Barbara MacGilchrist, Jane Reed and Kate Myers have given the next step: each chapter has a conclusion and "questions for discussion and activities" which are very open and will lead to considerable introspection' - Education Review 'I have rarely been so enthusiastic about a book. Reviewers are supposed to highlight some imperfections - I am at a loss. Recommend this book to all you meet' - Mervyn Flecknoe, Improving Schools 'This book would be an invaluable read for all who work in schools including LEA advisors, inspectors and consultants. It contains a chapter on teachers' learning and has some excellent questions for discussion at the end of each chapter that could usefully stimulate ideas for staff development sessions.It would be great if this book were read and taken seriously by those who make policy as well as those who try to put it into practice' - Escalate 'The book is easy to use, clear, well organized, full of practical examples and equally practical questions. It could be a signpost to the future - if the days of educational diktat are really almost over' - Michael Duffy, Times Educational Supplement, Friday Magazine 'This Second Edition of The Intelligent School offers a concise and accessible insight into the key aspects of educational leadership. In my view, it ought to be read by anyone who is keen to develop their understanding of theoretical frameworks expertly illustrated through practical examples' - Neil Saunders, Primary Phase Inspector - Hampshire LEA ,(Doctoral Student - The University of Hull) 'This is an excellent book. I will use its insights and the wealth of practical questions it offers to help with my present politically driven imperative - the transformation of London's secondary schools. If I have this book at my elbow and make sure it's well thumbed, there is every chance that we can create 411 intelligent schools across London.The new insights in The Intelligent School are a testament to the extraordinary proficiency of these three authors. As the waiter in the restaurant says when serving the meal "Enjoy"' - Tim Brighouse, Times Educational Supplement Barbara MacGilchrist, Kate Myers and Jane Reed have written a masterpiece. The First Edition of the Intelligent School in 1997 was an outstanding book and it is no surprise that a Second Edition has followed relatively quickly to share more good news for practitioners, policymakers, researchers and scholars. The First Edition shaped my thinking more than most in the late 1990's and I cited it in scores of presentations in different countries around the world. It was a perfect complement to our work on the self-managing school. In this Second Edition, the concept of the Intelligent School is expanded and the different kinds of intelligences are carefully explained and illustrated. The authors are able to draw on more than five years of implementation in the field and further and broader work in the research and development centres with which they are associated.They offer the best synthesis of the international literature on school effectiveness and school improvement that I have seen. They have performed a great service in making this literature accessible to the profession. I recommended the First Edition as essential reading for all the work in schools. Those who did not do so should certainly acquire the second, but it is important that policymakers and academics do the same. 'This book will quickly gain recognition as the leader among an increasing number of books that provide hope that all students in every setting can achieve a high quality education. It is one of the truly outstanding features of this book that it also conveys an unbridled spirit of optimism' - Brian Caldwell, Professor & Dean, Faculty of Education, University of Melbourne In writing The Intelligent School, Second Edition, the authors offer a practical resource to schools to help them maximise their improvement efforts.The aim is to help schools to be intelligent organizations; to be the type of school that can synthesise different kinds of knowledge, experience and ideas in order to be confident about current achievements, and to be able to decide what to do next. This Second Edition has been fully revised and updated particularly in terms of new research evidence about how to improve the quality of learning and teaching in classrooms. The authors set out fresh thinking about the nine intelligences and provide a new framework for school improvement which includes the exploration of spiritual, ethical and emotional intelligence. The book also includes examples of Intelligent Schools in action.
