Leading@Google: Josh Kaufman

"Josh Kaufman spoke to Googlers in Mountain View on February 10, 2011 about his book The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business. He is introduced by Jenny Blake.

About The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business:

"Getting an MBA is an expensive choice: one almost impossible to justify even in a good economy. Even the elite schools like Harvard and Wharton offer outdated, assembly-line programs that teach you more about PowerPoint presentations and unnecessary financial formulae than what it takes to improve a real business. You can get better results (and save hundreds of thousands of dollars) by skipping business school altogether."

Everybody talks about the role small businesses play in growing economies and creating jobs. However, as it stands, in America alone, 600,000 businesses die in the vine every year. This colossal infant entrepreneur mortality is a product of colossal levels of ignorance about how to build and sustain businesses.

Resonant Leadership: Renewing Yourself and Connecting with Others Through Mindfulness, Hope, and Compassion: Richard E. Boyatzis, Annie McKee: 9781591395638: Amazon.com: Books

"The blockbuster best seller Primal Leadership introduced us to "resonant" leaders--individuals who manage their own and others' emotions in ways that drive success. Leaders everywhere recognized the validity of resonant leadership, but struggled with how to achieve and sustain resonance amid the relentless demands of work and life. Now, Richard Boyatzis and Annie McKee provide an indispensable guide to overcoming the vicious cycle of stress, sacrifice, and dissonance that afflicts many leaders. Drawing from extensive multidisciplinary research and real-life stories, Resonant Leadership offers a field-tested framework for creating the resonance that fuels great leadership. Rather than constantly sacrificing themselves to workplace demands, leaders can manage the cycle using specific techniques to combat stress, avoid burnout, and renew themselves physically, mentally, and emotionally. The book reveals that the path to resonance is through mindfulness, hope, and compassion and shows how intentionally employing these qualities creates effective and enduring leadership. Great leaders are resonant leaders. Resonant Leadership offers the inspiration--and tools--to spark and sustain resonance in ourselves and in those we lead."

22 Crowdfunding Sites (and How To Choose Yours!)

22 Crowdfunding Sites (and How To Choose Yours!) | Leadership and Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

It's not just Kickstarter anymore. Here's a road map.

 

Crowdfunding used to be pretty simple. Artists, inventors, and filmmakers posted their ideas, and funders chipped in a few bucks to make something happen. Kickstarter, the site that triggered the crowdfunding movement, was the cornerstone. In three years, the site has helped launch more than 95,000 projects.

 

Today, there are scores of crowdfunding sites. Indiegogo, Bolstr, Fundable--the list goes on. With the SEC poised to allow projects to offer equity, crowdfunding has the potential to revolutionize how entrepreneurs raise money. (For now, you have to offer some kind of reward in exchange for donations.)

 

But all sites are not created equal. Some specialize in nonprofits, or in certain types of products; others offer consulting services in addition to sourcing funding. In an increasingly crowded and complicated marketplace, where should you turn to fund your endeavor? Follow our map.

BUILDING LEADERS AT EVERY LEVEL: A LEADERSHIP PIPELINE - Ivey Business Journal

BUILDING LEADERS AT EVERY LEVEL: A LEADERSHIP PIPELINE - Ivey Business Journal | Leadership and Entrepreneurship | Scoop.it

A CRISIS IN LEADERSHIP Over the past several years, the swift, and most often forced, departures of CEOs have become commonplace at companies in North. Based on work originally done at General Electric in the 1970s (referred to as Critical Career Crossroads and developed by Walter Mahler), and later expanded to and tested in more than 80 companies, we developed a six-passage model for understanding the leadership requirements throughout an entire company. We call this model The Leadership Pipeline (The Leadership Pipeline, by Ram Charan, Stephen J. Drotter and Jim Noel, Jossey-Bass Inc., 2001).

Reflecting twenty years of longitudinal research and practical wisdom with executives and leaders around the world, this new book is organized around a core of experience-tested exercises.
