            Leading for Learning: The Manager as a Developmental Coach (Hardback)

            People do their best work when they are motivated. This may sound obvious, but while people managers instinctively agree with the centrality of motivation at work and its impact on employee engagement, their practices do not follow. With so much real work to do every day, how can... managers also carve out time to learn, engage, build relationship, tap motivation, encourage development and inspire? The problem is a false dichotomy between the world of business and that of people development. What if managers were able to systematically transform everyday business issues into meaningful, developmental coaching opportunities with employees at the same time? This proven, coaching approach radically shifts conversations away from either-or propositions and uses an entirely different lens: to transform business challenges by connecting them directly to employee motivation to achieve the desired business result while dramatically increasing employee engagement. And all this comes none too soon, as leaders must re-think the way they lead given the modern realities of organizational life. Among them: A rapidly-shifting workplace and increasing uncertainty that requires a fundamental shift in the leader's approach, including the distribution of authority and the expectation that employees take responsibility for their own learning; Pervasive and persistent disengagement by employees who no longer accept the organization's priorities at the expense of their own. Organizations who continue to dictate terms will find themselves with employee turnover as an ongoing phenomenon. During the past decade, this coaching approach has been taught across the globe in nine languages, and has been enthusiastically embraced by thousands of managers while dissolving the invisible barriers that block individual and organizational success.

            Bureaucracy is a curse - it seems we can't live with it, we can't live without it. It is without doubt one of the fundamental ideas which underpin the business world and society at large. In this book, Tom Vine observes, analyses and critiques the concept, placing it at the heart... of our understanding of organisation. The author unveils bureaucracy as an endlessly emergent phenomenon which defies binary debate - in analysing organisation, we are all bureaucrats. In building an experiential perspective, the book develops more effective ways to interact with bureaucracy in theory and practice. Empirical material take centre stage, whilst the book employs ethnographic and auto-ethnographic methods to illuminate the existential function of bureaucracy. Taking examples from art, history and culture, this book provides an entertaining alternative academic analysis of bureaucracy as a key idea in business and society which will be essential reading for students and scholars of work and organisation

            The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region is undergoing significant socio-political and developmental transition. Although interest in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) in the region is growing, little research has addressed Corporate Social Responsibility education and ...its potential impact. CSR has an important role to play in the socio-economic development of the Middle East and North Africa due to the volatility and developmental needs of the region. Recent research has highlighted that the vitality of the institutional environment and the needs of multiple stakeholders in CSR are not necessarily consistent with the notion of CSR in the West. This book compiles conceptual, contextual, and empirical research that addresses the concepts of CSR, ethics, and sustainability education in the MENA region, with a special emphasis on how educators can bridge to the Giving Voice to Values approach. This book presents a much-needed portfolio of articles from authors based in Egypt, Morocco, the Sultanate of Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) highlighting first an overview of the topic and its corresponding publications in the MENA region, then presenting several exemplary cases related to ECSRS application in various countries.

            Marketing communication is a dynamic industry, which continues to change and adapt to new technologies, media consumption patterns and communication interfaces between marketers and their target markets. At the same time, the fundamental communication processes and well-establish...ed theories and models are very much applicable in this dynamic environment. This revised second edition blends the well-established with the new and emerging aspects of marketing communications. Marketing Communications applies a uniquely practical approach to the topic, providing a structured overview of planning, development, implementation and evaluation of marketing communications, alongside detailed case studies that demonstrate how the theory translates to practice. Fully updated, the new edition considers important developments in the global marketplace. It includes new content on emerging digital media platforms, changing media consumption patterns and consumers' strategies to cope with information overload. It also reflects upon consumer skepticism, a growing phenomenon that communication specialists need to overcome when designing and implementing effective campaigns. This new edition also considers the importance of marketing communications tools in not-for-profit sectors, such as social marketing and political marketing, as well as the cross-cultural aspect of marketing communications. This textbook is essential reading for both students and professionals in marketing, communications and public relations. Online resources include an extensive instructors' guide, which provides answer checklists to all Thinkboxes, Ethical Issues and End-of-chapter Cases within the book. The text is also supported by PowerPoint slides and test bank for all chapters and major cases.
