            Women and Leadership presents a lively and readable analysis of how gender impacts the access of women to positions of political leadership, the perceptions of them as leaders, the trajectory of their leadership and the circumstances in which it comes to an end. Analysing the les...sons learned from these women, Julia Gillard and Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala provide a road map of essential knowledge to inspire all of us. Women leaders often have biographies published but the approach taken to analysing gender is not consistent. Authors may shy away from dealing deeply with gender questions fearing a backlash if a book is seen to be whinging in tone. Women and Leadership fills that void and takes a consistent and comprehensive approach to teasing out what is different for women leaders. The same interview questions were used to examine each woman's journey in leadership and their real world experiences were tested against the authors' hypothesis of how gender impacts leadership. Resulting in an action agenda for change that will make it more likely women leaders are treated fairly and with no gender bias. Featuring- Jacinda Ardern, Hillary Clinton, Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Theresa May, Michelle Bachelet, Joyce Banda, Erna Solberg, Christine Lagarde and more.

            HGTV cofounder Susan Packard launches the next chapter in emotional intelligence (EQ), and shows you how to increase your personal satisfaction and productivity--in work and life--via her three-step path toward EQ Fitness. Emotions can sink us, or they can power us like fuel to s...ucceed. Many of us show up for work, and life, feeling lonely even in a room full of people, or bringing unproductive emotions into work, like anger or fear. You don't have to feel this way. Susan Packard offers an accessible new guidebook to grow your emotional fitness, and it's arrived just in time, as technology is quickly becoming our main interface for communication. No matter where you are in your career, success is an inside job. Packard lays out how to develop interdependent work relationships, and for leaders, how to build healthy company cultures. Packard introduces us to successful people, and companies, that are rich with 'connector' emotions like hope, empathy and trust-building. She tackles unconventional topics, like how workaholism keeps us emotionally adolescent, and how forgiveness belongs in the workplace too. Packard shares her EQ Fit-catalyzed success at HGTV and the stories of the executives she coaches in mindfulness and other emerging techniques, and she teaches an 'inside out' practice of self-discovery, which helps you uncover unproductive emotions, and dispel them. The best leaders balance power and grace, and everyone can effectively use resilience--an ability to endure tough situations and make tough decisions, and vulnerability, a willingness to open up, change, and admit when we need help. She offers new tools to bring our strongest emotional selves to work each day.

            Innovative Consumer Co-operatives: The Rise and Fall of Berkeley
             

            Innovative Consumer Co-operatives: The Rise and Fall of Berkeley (Hardback)

            Consumer co-operatives provide a different approach to organizing business through their ideals of member ownership and democratic practice. Every co-operative member has an equal vote regardless of his or her own personal capital investment. The co-operative movement can also be... an important force in promoting development and self-sufficiency in poorer areas, particularly in non-industrialised countries. This book explores in depth the fortunes of the Berkeley Consumer Co-operative, which became the largest consumer co-operative in the United States with 116,000 members in 1984 and viewed nationally as a leader in innovative retail practices and a champion of consumer rights. The Berkeley Consumer Co-operative is promoted by both supporters and opponents of the co-operative business model as a significant example of what can go wrong with the co-operatives. This book will provide the first in depth analysis of the history of the Berkeley Co-operative using its substantial but little used archives and oral histories to explore what the Berkeley experience means for the co-operative business model. The specific chapters relating to Berkeley will be organised around particular themes to highlight the issues relating to the co-operative business model and the local context of Berkeley. The themes relate to developments in Berkeley and the Bay Area in terms of the economy, politics and the retail environment; the management of the Berkeley co-operative, looking at governance, financial management and strategic decisions; relationship of management with members and employees; and finally, the relationship of the Berkeley Co-operative with the community. The core message of the book is that it is not inevitable that consumer co-operatives fail, but that the story of Berkeley story can provide insights that can strengthen the co-operative business model and minimise failures on the scale of Berkeley occurring in the future.

            This book reimagines what it is to organize or manage in contemporary work environments, though looking at ideas such as culture and objectivity. Emerging at about the same time as Schein's well-known theory of culture, Joanne Martin's multiple perspectives on culture have, until... now, been accessed by a privileged few. However, Martin's account of culture is shown to be more nuanced, fluid and multi-levelled. Subsequent chapters reimagine the nature of organizing, rationality and bureaucracy through the works of Judi Marshall, Arlie Hochschild and Kathy Ferguson to provide an equally radical re-reading of what happens in organization and management. These works draw on diverse feminist perspectives to critique traditional accounts and offer new discourses. The same is true of Donna Haraway's work and her refutation of our conventional understanding of objectivity, in favour of a feminist objectivity. From partiality we move to absence, and Marguerite Yourcenar's emphasis on the importance of silences in understanding not only organizations but organization studies more broadly. Smircich and Calas then round off the volume by assessing the contribution of feminism to organization studies, and reflecting on how the field may unfold in the future. This book will be relevant to students and researchers across business and management, organizational studies, critical management studies, gender studies and sociology.

            As the first IAS officer to climb the world's tallest peak, Ravindra Kumar in this book has presented Mount Everest as a symbol of life's problems beyond the limit of a physical barrier. Introducing the innovative technique of 'Advanced Positive Visualisation', the author explain...s how the various Everests of life can be conquered with this success key. Kumar has tested the impact of this technique personally and has achieved many feats-starting from his selection in the prestigious IIT entrance examination to his selection in the premier Civil Services Examination and becoming an IAS officer after working at sea for many years and, thereafter, climbing the highest peak of the world in his maiden attempt. It is through his life journey and after analysing its impact, the author has presented to the reader the innate power lying dormant in the human mind. Kumar's claim is based on the fact that our brain catches the image of anything before any other sensory perception like speech, hearing, smell, touch, etc. Although this is a daily phenomenon we don't notice it. The author has not only documented his observation from day-to-day life but has also explained it scientifically by connecting the dots of old as well as modern scientific researches, including Einstein's theory of relativity, findings by yogis, experiments on human brain by modern research centres such as Harvard Medical School, Leningrad Military Laboratory, etc. He has explained this technical subject in a simple lucid language to be understood by all. By demonstrating the miraculous effect of this technique in the lives of ordinary people through the example of his life, the author explains to the readers, and in the process motivates them on how, despite life's vicissitudes, one can achieve one's dreams.
