Leading Strategy Execution
How to Align the Senior Team, Design a Strategy-Capable Organization, and Get All Employees On-Board This richly illustrated book is for anyone who has a dream and wishes to fulfill it, but whose aspirations require the support of others. If you find traditional command-control management appealing or if you find the idea of involving lower-level employees in creating parts of the strategy offensive, this probably isn’t the book for you. On the other hand, if you’re a manager who believes there is usually entirely too much CYA behavior in organizations, or you’re a new CEO who really wants to cultivate widespread responsibility among employees and increasing the fun, energy, and passion at work, you’ve come to the right place.
Victim, Survivor or Navigator? Choosing a Response to Workplace Change
This concise, practical book is written for anyone whose workplace or career is in the throes of change. Written in simple language, it spells out a philosophy that is applicable in all aspects of one’s life. The essence is this: at work—or anywhere else—you can be a Victim, a Survivor, or what the author calls a Navigator. Dealing with workplace change as a Victim means some form of fight or flight. Being a Survivor is better, but tends to lead to burnout. It’s the stance and behaviors of the Navigator that enable one to make the best of change. The book is filled with many examples, worksheets, exercises, and an accompanying web site provides short essays, podcasts, and other resources.
