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).

Hidden Value: How Great Companies Achieve Extraordinary Results with Ordinary People: Charles A. III O'Reilly: 9780875848983: Amazon.com: Books

"Discover how the best companies win not by acquiring the right people - but by building the right organization. The 'war for talent' is one battle every company believes it should be waging. But while competitors are busy chasing after the same 'hot' individuals, smart companies are doing something infinitely more useful and far more difficult to copy - they're building organizations that make it possible for ordinary people at every desk and cubicle in their companies to perform as if they were stars. Blowing up the prevailing wisdom that companies must chase and acquire top talent in order to remain successful, "Hidden Value" argues instead that the source of sustained competitive advantage already exists within every organization. O'Reilly and Pfeffer, leading experts on organizational behavior and human resources, argue that how a firm creates and uses talent is far more important than how the firm attracts talent. The authors provide vivid, detailed case studies of several organizations in widely disparate industries - including Southwest Airlines, Cisco Systems, The Men's Wearhouse, and NUMMI - to illustrate how long-term success comes from value-driven, interrelated systems that align good people management with corporate strategy. In a refreshing break from management tomes that force-feed superficial frameworks and trite 'rules', the authors instead allow the company stories to take center stage. They guide readers in discovering for themselves how seven different firms maximize talent, why one firm hasn't fully released the hidden value in its work force, and, most importantly, how the winning companies have made it tough for competitors to imitate them. Collectively, the stories reveal a common path to success that places values before strategy, emphasizes implementation over planning, and focuses on getting the best out of all employees, not just individual stars. The authors also explore concerns or questions managers might have about how each company's experience parallels or conflicts with their own. Providing a rare opportunity for managers to actively participate in an invaluable learning process, "Hidden Value" offers a customizable template for building high-performance, people-centered organizations".

"Ask anyone to name some Washington State business start-ups and you will most likely hear the names Microsoft and Starbucks, but few realize that United Parcel Service began as a small bike messenger service in Seattle around 1905. Unlike companies such as Kodak, Microsoft, and Xerox, which were built around a break-through product or idea, founder Jim Casey took a basic existing service and reengineered it through modernized equipment and impeccable service. The buttoned-down Boy Scout look of the UPS driver remains a direct reflection of the owner's vision of presenting a clean-cut image that would take the package-delivery service out of the alley and make it respectable. Brewster traces the roots of UPS from messenger service to regional West Coast truck-based delivery service to what it is today, the largest private multinational air parcel carrier with a massive airline fleet and one of the largest and most sophisticated sorting facilities in the world. With unprecedented access to the company's facilities, historical records, and employees, Brewster provides the most in-depth look at this highly regarded company to date."
