THE GIFTED BOSS

The Gifted Boss is management guru Dale Dauten’s classic yet revolutionary guidebook on teaching managers how to spot and court talent and how to give great employees what they want and need. This is a comprehensive system full of valuable insight and lessons aimed at creating the best work environment for the best people. Throughout The Gifted Boss Dale Dauten’s defines his different breed of leader as one who is able to shape a business environment and culture that is a magnet for self-motivated employees. Dauten’s starting point is a powerful fact about hiring great employees: the best ones are almost never in the job market. His System also includes a discussion of “ideal turnover” and how the great managers employ “the secret skill” of “de-hiring” to gracefully move mediocre employees up or out. Throughout his discussions, Dauten incorporates priceless knowledge gained from an exhaustive search for America’s best bosses. The wisdom he acquired was startling, and it pertained to every type of organization: “Different isn’t always better, but better is always different”.

The Power of Framing: Creating the Language of Leadership

The Power of Framing: Creating the Language of Leadership

"The primary work of leadership involves managing meaning through framing. Fairhurst shows that the way leaders use language to frame people, situations, and events has important consequences for the way individuals make sense of the world and their actions. The Power of Framing is an accessible and inspirational read for leaders who want to shape their organizations in ethically responsible ways." 
J. KEVIN BARGE, professor, Texas A&M University

"An ideal book for MBA students and business professionals who are interested in specific tools for constructing leadership in their professional worlds. By focusing on the language toolbox of leadership, the book empowers anyone to construct leadership through talk and interaction." 
JOLANTA ARITZ, associate professor, Center for Management Communication, USC Marshall School of Business

"Building on her earlier acclaimed work, and written in a highly accessible style, Fairhurst's thoughtful study provides us with a practical and highly relevant analysis of the power of framing language from a leadership perspective. This is a must-have book." 
DAVID GRANT, professor of organizational studies, University of Sydney

"Communication is the most important element of leadership, and framing of the subject and situation is one of the most powerful tools available to leaders. Gail Fairhurst has created the handbook to help leaders do this right. A must-read for anyone in a leadership capacity." 
RICH KILEY, venture capitalist, and retired Procter & Gamble marketing and HR executive

"To be an effective global manager, there is nothing more critical than understanding how to frame an issue so that you are effectively communicating and motivating in a culturally sensitive manner. This book will tune you into these issues and show you how to make certain your communication is properly interpreted by your audience." 
OLGA JACOB, general sales manager (Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg), American Airlines

DEVELOPMENT OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR SEAWATER DESALINATION PLANTS

DEVELOPMENT OF AN ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND DECISION SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR SEAWATER DESALINATION PLANTS

Seawater desalination is a coastal-based industry. The growing number of desalination plants worldwide and the increasing size of single facilities emphasis the need for greener desalination technologies and more sustainable desalination projects. Two complementing approaches are the development and implementation of best available technology (BAT) standards and practice guidelines for environmental impact assessment (EIA) studies. While BAT is a technology-based approach, which favours state of the art technologies that reduce resource consumption and waste emissions, EIA aims at minimizing impacts at a site and project-specific level through environmental monitoring, evaluation of impacts and mitigation where necessary. This book contains a comprehensive evaluation and synthesis of the potential environmental impacts of desalination plants, with emphasis on the marine environment and aspects of energy use, followed by the development of strategies for impact mitigation. A concept for BAT for seawater desalination technologies is proposed, in combination with a methodological approach for the EIA of desalination projects. The scope of the EIA studies are outlined, including environmental monitoring, toxicity and hydrodynamic modeling studies and the usefulness of multi-criteria analysis as a decision support tool for EIAs is explored and used to compare different intake and pretreatment options for seawater reverse osmosis plants.

IT'S OKAY TO MANAGE YOUR BOSS

IT'S OKAY TO MANAGE YOUR BOSS

Get what you need from your boss

In this follow-up to the bestselling It's Okay to Be the Boss, Bruce Tulgan argues that as managers demand more and more from their employees, they are also providing them with less guidance than ever before. Since the number one factor in employee success is the relationship between employees and their immediate managers, employees need to take greater responsibility for getting the most out of that relationship. Drawing on years of experience training managers and employees, Tulgan reveals the four essential things employees should get from their bosses to guarantee success at work.

  • Shows employees how to ask for what they need to succeed in their high-pressure jobs
  • Shatters previously held beliefs about how employees should manage up
  • Outlines what employees must get from their managers: clear expectations; the skills needed to perform their jobs; honest feedback, recognition or rewards

A novel approach to managing up, It's Okay to Manage Your Boss is an invaluable resource for employees who want to work more effectively with their managers.

5 MINDS FOR THE FUTURE

5 MINDS FOR THE FUTURE

We live in a time of relentless change. The only thing that’s certain is that new challenges and opportunities will emerge that are virtually unimaginable today. How can we know which skills will be required to succeed?

In 5 Minds for the Future, bestselling author Howard Gardner shows how we will each need to master "five minds" that the fast-paced future will demand:

 

  • The disciplined mind, to learn at least one profession, as well as the major thinking (science, math, history, etc.) behind it
     
  • The synthesizing mind, to organized the massive amounts of information and communicate effectively to others
     
  • The creating mind, to revel in unasked questions and uncover new phenomena and insightful apt answers
     
  • The respectful mind, to appreciate the differences between human beings and understand and work with all persons
     
  • The ethical mind, to fulfill one's responsibilities as both a worker and a citizen

 

Without these "minds," we risk being overwhelmed by information, unable to succeed in the workplace, and incapable of the judgement needed to thrive both personally and professionally. Complete with a substantial new introduction, Five Minds for the Future provides valuable tools for those looking ahead to the next generation of leaders - and for all of us striving to excel in a complex world. Howard Gardner cited by Foreign Policy magazine as one of the one hundred most influential public intellectuals in the world, and a MacArthur Fellowship recipient is the Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
