Given the turbulence of the world we now live in, clear and effective leadership has never been more important. But equally, there has never been greater pressure on leaders to perform and to provide inspirational leadership for their teams and organisations. If people are to step up into challenging leadership roles and succeed in inspiring others, their first priority must be to find ways in which to discover that inspiration for themselves. The Inspired Leader will help them to do just that. Based on both commercial practice and research conducted with Henley Business School, Andy Bird shows the ways in which inspiration is actually experienced by people in leadership roles. The book also explores how a variety of leaders, in a range of business environments, have reached these states of inspiration in practice and how they maintain them over time, despite the many obstacles and challenges they go on to face. Divided into three key sections, the book addresses the following questions: How is inspiration experienced? How can inspiration be achieved? How can inspiration be sustained? The result is a compelling collection of stories and breakthrough insights, which are accompanied by a practical set of personal development tools and exercises. Together, The Inspired Leader provides unrivalled support for those in any kind of leadership role to discover their own path to a more inspired life as a leader. 1. Language: English.

Theory U: Leading from the Future as It Emerges
34,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Access the deepest source of inspiration and vision We live in a time of massive institutional failure that manifests in the form of three major divides: the ecological, the social, and the spiritual. Addressing these challenges requires a new consciousness and collective leadership capacity. In this groundbreaking book, Otto Scharmer invites us to see the world in new ways and in so doing discover a revolutionary approach to learning and leadership. In most large systems today, we collectively create results that no one wants. What keeps us stuck in such patterns of the past? It's our blind spot, that is, our lack of awareness of the inner place from which our attention and intention originate. By moving through Scharmer's U process, we consciously access the blind spot and learn to connect to our authentic Self-the deepest source of knowledge and inspiration. Theory U offers a rich diversity of compelling stories, examples, exercises, and practices that allow leaders, organizations, and larger systems to cosense and coshape the future that is wanting to emerge. This second edition features a new preface in which Scharmer identifies five transformational trends and describes U process case stories around the world. There are also eight color drawings by Kelvy Bird that capture U journey applications and illustrate the concepts in the book, as well as new resources for applying the principles and practices.

Next: Pastoral Succession That Works , Hörbuch,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Every church and ministry goes through changes in leadership, and the issue is far bigger than the wave of pastors from the baby boomer generation who are moving toward retirement. When a pastor leaves a church, ministries are disrupted, and members drift away. If the church is already struggling, it can find itself suddenly in very dire straits indeed. But the outcome doesn't have to be that way. What if when a pastor moved on, the church knew exactly what to do to find a suitable replacement because a plan and a process had been in place for some time? While there is no simple, one-size-fits-all solution to the puzzle of planning for a seamless pastoral succession, Next offers church leaders and pastors a guide to asking the right questions in order to plan for the future. Vanderbloemen, founder of a leading pastoral search firm, and Bird, an award-winning writer and researcher, share insider stories of succession successes and failures in dozens of churches, including some of the nation's most influential. Through case studies, interviews, and real-time research, the authors demystify successful pastoral succession and help listeners prepare for an even brighter future for their ministries. 1.

The Ugly Duckling Is a Swan
32,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

'The ugly duckling is a swan.' Thus ends the fairy tale of The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen. However, until that beautiful day when it met its fellow swans, the little bird had to go through some tough times. And the ugly duckling is not the only protagonist that faced difficult moments before seeing a happy ending. There are countless fairy tales such as 'Cinderella' and 'Haensel and Gretel', just to name a few. 'Rags-to-riches plots' have been used by leaders and societies at all times throughout history to recount their own stories. Interestingly, turnaround stories have gained more and more 'scientific interest', also in 'marketing', 'entrepreneurship', and, most recently, even as a 'leadership tool'. Apparently, we seem to like protagonists which successfully make their way through troubled times. But why? Is it because they might inspire or encourage us and give us hope for a good ending? Or is there anything else we can learn from the ugly duckling, Cinderella, and their fellow protagonists? To that end, the four short essays in the present book examine foundations, features, and actual applications of turnaround stories in various areas. The central aim of all of this is that turnaround stories may give entrepreneurs and leaders hope but also advice so that they, after all kinds of challenges and crises in their own lives, may eventually come to experience that the 'ugly duckling is a swan.'

In this new book, they provide a complete, practical, hands-on guide for church leaders of both struggling and vibrant churches so that they can understand the issues, develop strategies, and execute a variety of forms of merger for church expansion and renewal to reinvigorate declining churches and give them a 'second life.'

The Venetian Betrayal
3,50 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A pacy international thriller with a historical twist, from the New York Times bestselling author. Cotton Malone is back and the stakes were never higher: a deadly virus that could wipe out civilisation as we know it - and a cure that lies buried in the past. The Venetian League, a secret group of 45 political and economic leaders from around the world, has joined forces with a coalition of former Soviet republics to create a potentially devastating biological weapon, a bird flu-like virus that has been artificially mutated to pass from human to human. Whoever develops the cure would control the future of global warfare. Yet that cure may have been discovered centuries ago, and if so the clue to the location of the formula lies buried with Alexander the Great. When Cotton Malone's former companion Cassiopeia Vitt hears about it, she and Cotton join the hunt for Alexander's long-lost tomb, and what at first seems to Cotton a wild quest for the answer to a perplexing historical riddle becomes a harrowing fight for truth that has unimaginable repercussions, both geopolitical and terrifyingly personal.
