Reimagining Justice Human Rights and Leadership in Africa:Challenging Discourse and Searching for Alternative Paths
Use these powerful techniques to improve and enhance your leadership skills immediately! This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to awaken, utilize, and maximize the natural leadership potential that you possess. Leadership opportunities are not just confined in the workplace. Each day, in common life situations, a couple of leadership opportunities actually present themselves to you. To be a leader is to be responsible for your domain, whether that is the office, your team, your business, your field of study, your home, or your neighborhood. Contrary to what most people believe, leadership doesn´t come from a position, a title, or even a crown. It is not who you are that makes you a leader. It´s what you do, and more importantly, it´s how you do it. Each time you make a decision about your life, you practice leadership. You actually become a leader each time you influence someone toward a certain path. Through this book, you will learn the true definition of leadership, the common misconceptions, and the most valuable qualities of a true leader. The ancient model of command and control leadership is growing less and less applicable in modern work environments. The current trend is knocking down organizational structure. It´s a great thing that people are starting to look for more than just a satisfactory job. Smart individuals are searching for careers that enable them to become more actively involved in decision-making. Whether you´re a business owner, a manager, or an employee aspiring for a leadership role, this book will teach you strategies on how to motivate others. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Toby Sheets.

This is the leadership book you have to experience: a barn-storming new take on what makes a versatile, integrated, and effective leader. Using stories and examples from the lives of leaders, from the sports stadium to the White House to the office of the CEO, Nigel Nicholson shows vividly how the capacity of leaders to see what others do not see frames their actions and allows them to transform, build, destroy, or stabilize. Leaders fail through lack of insight - into themselves and into the worlds they inhabit. The strategic challenge of leadership is to find the right balance between impact and versatility and the successful crafting of an identity that merges the leader and the surrounding culture or ´zeitgeist.´ Leaders covered in the book include: George Bush, Tony Blair, George S Patton, Warren Buffet, Steve Jobs, Josef Stalin, Hannibal, Elizabeth I, Nelson Mandela, Edith Cowan, Abraham Lincoln, Mohandas Gandhi, Henry Ford, Ernest Shackleton, Barack Obama, Robert Maxwell, JFK, Pope John XXIII, Margaret Thatcher, and Samuel Pepys. This book resonates with insights and searching questions on the nature of human leadership, making it an invaluable guide to managers, consultants, and people everywhere. 1. Language: English.

´´It’s easier to compete when you’re attracting great people instead of searching for good people.” (Mack Story)´´We just can’t find any good people,” is a phrase Mack hears far too often as he speaks to and interacts with leaders all across the USA. If you or a member of your leadership team has ever spoken these words, this book was written specifically for you. It doesn’t have to be this way.Blue-Collar Leadership® & Culture will help you understand why culture is the key to becoming a sought after employer of choice within your industry. Culture matters because those who work there will determine who wants to work there.Becoming a sought after employer means, ´´People who don’t work at your organization have a strong desire to work there.”Becoming an employer of choice means, ´´People who already work at your organization have a strong desire to continue working there.”Mack wrote Blue-Collar Leadership® & Culture specifically for leaders who want to become THE sought after employer of choice within their industry and in their area of operations. Sought after employers of choice attract great people and don’t spend their time and resources constantly searching for good people.Mack has logged over 11,000 hours leading leaders and their blue-collar teams through process improvement, organizational change, and cultural transformation and speaks with his wife, Ria Story, on personal growth and leadership development throughout the USA as they help leaders transform their cultures and develop high performance teams.Although leaders in all industries at all levels will benefit greatly from this book, Mack structured the content specifically for the top leader who has never led a cultural transformation but is curious to find out what will be required. Mack will help you not only discover why you should transform your culture, but also what to do and how to do it. Therefor 1. Language: English. Narrator: Randal Schaffer.

With a new introduction on using the principles of The Servant in your life and career, this book redefines what it means to be a leader. In this absorbing tale, you watch the timeless principles of servant leadership unfold through the story of John Daily, a businessman whose outwardly successful life is spiraling out of control. He is failing miserably in each of his leadership roles as boss, husband, father, and coach. To get his life back on track, he reluctantly attends a weeklong leadership retreat at a remote Benedictine monastery. To John´s surprise, the monk leading the seminar is a former business executive and Wall Street legend. Taking John under his wing, the monk guides him to a realization that is simple yet profound: The true foundation of leadership is not power, but authority, which is built upon relationships, love, service, and sacrifice. Along with John, you will learn that the principles in this book are neither new nor complex. They don´t demand special talents; they are simply based on strengthening the bonds of respect, responsibility, and caring with the people around you. The Servant´s message can be applied by anyone, anywhere - at home or at work. If you are tired of books that lecture instead of teach; if you are searching for ways to improve your leadership skills; if you want to understand the timeless virtues that lead to lasting and meaningful success, then this book is one you cannot afford to miss. 1.
