NEW EDITION, REVISED AND UPDATED Since its original publication in 2000, Leadership and Self-Deception has become a word-of-mouth phenomenon. Its sales continue to increase year after year, and the book’s popularity has gone global, with editions now available in over twenty languages. Through a story everyone can relate to about a man facing challenges on the job and in his family, the authors expose the fascinating ways that we can blind ourselves to our true motivations and unwittingly sabotage the effectiveness of our own efforts to achieve success and increase happiness. This new edition has been revised throughout to make the story even more compelling. And drawing on the extensive correspondence the authors have received over the years, they have added a section that outlines the many ways that readers have been using Leadership and Self-Deception to improve their lives and workplaces—areas such as team building, conflict resolution, and personal growth and development, to name a few. Read this extraordinary book and discover what millions already have learned—how to consistently tap into an innate ability that dramatically improves both your results and your relationships.

Genre: Business & Economics

There is a plethora of theoretical books out there addressing management of human resources and responsibilities, in order to help organisations perform in the best possible way. Be that as it may, only a few of them suggest actual ways of applying what is written to everyday situations. This particular book constitutes a valuable tool in managers attempt to put the basic principles of management into action in the workplace. This book involves certain concepts, notions and theories related to marketing, management and psychology, aiming to help the reader shape a broader impression of external reality. How do creativity and inspiration function? In which ways can individuals stimulate them? Which are the functions of human conscience and what do they serve for? Which are the positive and negative features involved in individuals thought processes? What makes people change? What can individuals do in order to attain personal and professional success? How do leaders respond and operate in times of crisis? The above are only some of the questions raised in the book. According to my book, financial crisis tested all the social and economic environment. Things are changing rapidly and individuals have to change and adapt very fast in order to survive (this is the first part of my book Personal Development) . Nowadays, a manager is concerned to be a leader. A kind of a hero. A person who can inspire, attack and come out intact from the transactions and reforms. Employees must give the extra mile to their leaders and from all these chaotic circumstances (environment ) they have to succeed for their own good! Furthermore, what individuals have to do in order to attain personal and professional success and how do leaders respond and operate in times of crisis? All these, in my personal opinion, responded in my book in order to give a few guide lines (second part) to anyone who want/need to change/survive today. An attempt is made to provide a plausible answer, in order to render the reader more aware of such concerns and stimulate a change for the better

The Future of Post Human Organization

Genre: Science

What exactly makes the nature of organizations so miracular that their very purpose is “to achieve performance” and that it is now regarded, in this capitalist age of ours, as the central aim to be both possible and desirable for any organization? After all, there is simply no lack of organizations which “achieve performance” with questionable means and goals—be they about “greed” and “excess” in the corporate world, or “evil” and “injustice” in the public sphere, just to cite two main examples (although there are others too, of course). Contrary to the conventional wisdom preciously accepted by many contemporaries, this obsessive craze for organizational performance is fast becoming a seductive trend, such that the dark sides of organizational performance have yet to be systematically understood and that its very purpose is neither possible nor desirable to the extent that its proponents would like us to believe. Needless to say, this is not to suggest that the purpose of organizations is to reject performance, or that the literature in organizational studies (and other related fields like political science, media studies, and business management, for example) hitherto existing in history are full of scholarly worthlessness. The aim of this book, however, is to provide an alternative (better) way to understand the nature of organization, in special relation to communication, decision-making, and leadership—while learning from different views in the literature, without favoring any one of them (nor integrating them), and, in the end, transcending them in a new direction not thought before. This seminal project, if successful, will radically change the way that we think about the nature of organization, from the combined perspectives of the mind, nature, society, and culture, with enormous implications for the human future and what I originally called its “post-human” fate.

Pentecostalism and Globalization

Author: Steven M. Studebaker
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
ISBN: 9781630877149
Release Date: 2010-09-20
Genre: Religion

In little over a century, the Pentecostal movement has emerged from small bands of revival seekers to become one of the largest Christian groups in the world. Primarily a movement within Western Christianity for much of its brief history, it is increasingly characterized as a global movement. Pentecostal theology and ministry in a Western context must engage global Pentecostalism and be willing to rethink its traditional patterns of thought and practice in light of the evolving nature of the movement. The essays in this book come mainly from the McMaster Divinity College 2008 Pentecostal Forum: The Many Faces of Pentecostalism: Pentecostalism and Globalization. The first section outlines the nature of globalization and establishes it as the context for contemporary Pentecostal theology and ministry. The other contributions explore the impact of globalization on traditional areas of Pentecostal theology, such as Spirit baptism and speaking in tongues, and twenty-first-century Pentecostal ministry.
