Story As A Leadership Influence Tool To Lead Millennials

As the Millennial generation takes its place in organizations, leaders face the quandary of how to lead this unique generation. Contemporary literature suggests that story is a leadership tool used across generations and promotes it as an effective leadership tool. The Millennial generation desires a more open communication process and is inclined to seek direction from leaders in a more informal manner. Exploring the perception of Millennials about the use of story was the basis of this inquiry. The findings revealed that the difference between Millennial and non-Millennial perceptions of story as a leadership tool was not statistically significant. Therefore, the results of this study also support the use of story as a leadership tool to lead millennials.

Now, we are beginning to realize the importance of cooperation within and between species during the course of animal and plant evolution. As we learn more about how significant cooperative behavior has been during evolution, we can disabuse ourselves of the misconceptions that the term "survival of the fittest" can arouse.

Coach Leadership in Football Coach Leadership in Football Новинка

Coach Leadership in Football

In sport, effective leadership has become synonymous with championships. Coaches with winning records are deemed great leaders, often relying on the control and manipulation of their athletes to achieve their ends. Athlete development has been overshadowed by performance-based results, and so methods of coach leadership have come to reflect a single-minded emphasis on winning. The aim of this work is to improve athletes’ performances through more ethical modes of leadership and coach behavior. For the majority of coaches, and most certainly those at the more elite levels, winning has taken precedence over the development of the athlete to reflect societal values. However, the evolution of leadership research has led to new modes that combine athlete development with winning and help to mediate this tension through considerate forms of leadership. For the purposes of this work, the process of leadership will be applied to the sport of contact football and how football coaches can employ modes of leadership that result in the heightened performances associated with transformational leadership.

Distributed Leadership in Practice

Traditionally leadership in schools was characterised as being based around heroic and charismatic leaders. Yet this form of leadership has come under increasing criticism and instead "distributed leadership" is now being argued to be a more effective route for school improvement both in the UK and North America. This text explores the notion of distributed leadership in relation to the social, political and economic environment within which schools are operating in South East England. The research discussed is based around three contrasting secondary schools and examines how these differing school contexts give rise to differing responses to the distributed leadership agenda. The author proposes a new model for understanding how this form of leadership is enacted and offers new insights into the challenges facing schools that wish to put in place this whole school change.

How important is Servant Leadership and Organizational Climate?

This book expanded on the current theoretical understanding of servant leadership and offered some insights into the direct effect of servant leadership on both proximal (job frustration) and distal (career commitment) outcomes for individual employees. This book is significant because the effects of servant leadership studied to date have focused largely on the connection of employees to the organization (organizational commitment). The results of this study show that servant leadership has direct effects on how employees view not only the daily nature of their jobs but also the extent to which they may stay in their career. Results of the present study indicate that organizations need to take into account servant leadership and the impact leadership styles have on employees. Theoretical and practical implications of the study are discussed.

Teresian Leadership: A Historical Analysis

Teresa of Avila was a woman who lived in Spain in the 16th century. She was a cloistered Nun, reformer, foundress, mystic, writer, leader, saint, and the first Woman Doctor of the Catholic Church. This book presents an exposition of the leadership of Teresa of Avila. In Spain during her time leadership was considered to be the prerogative of men, women were considered less than men, less human, and even a mistake of nature. Women’s world was their home and the household works. Today, the terms leader and leadership have become synonyms for exploitation and corruption. This book explains the true meaning of the terms leader and leadership. Leadership is not reserved to any particular race, group, or gender. Leadership is timeless; it is gender neutral, and leaders are both born and made. According to the Christian perspective, leadership is from God. Leadership is to uplift the people to higher levels of life, ultimately to the divine union. This book explains how Teresa of Avila,as a leader, transformed the challenges and restrictions into opportunities to achieve her goal. Those who look for a great model of exemplary leadership for the 21st century can find it in Teresa of Avila.
American Leadership Image and the Yugoslav Crisis American Leadership Image and the Yugoslav Crisis Новинка

American Leadership Image and the Yugoslav Crisis

The author explains US foreign policy towards managing the dissolution of Yugoslavia and in particular the war in Bosnia and Hercegovina. In order to explain this evolution of US policy, this analysis establishes the compound concept of leadership image. It is a compound concept comprising three elements. The first of these is the self-image, which involves perceptions of leadership and formulates certain policy preferences; the second is the projected-image, which regards preferences pursued as policy positions; and finally, the alter’s-image, which entails the perception and expectations that other states have of the leader’s policies. This volume advocates that the latter is cardinal since it determines the legitimization of leadership. If the policies that are projected by the leader do not resemble with what the followers anticipate from the leader, then the exertion of leadership is obstructed thus generating doubts about the leader’s credibility and thus respect. In contemporary politics, the impulse to sustain this respect perhaps can drive more frequently the leader’s foreign policy decision making.

Exploring Teacher Leadership Development in Context

Effective school leadership is currently associated with school improvement that enhances teaching and learning processes. School improvement can be sustainable if teachers participate in leadership at the classroom and school organizational levels. However, to create a culture of distributed leadership in a school requires a shift in perception of school leadership as actions of an individual called a head teacher to a process of collective influence. With this imperative arises the need for effective leadership development programmes for teachers. This book, therefore, provides a theoretical lens for approaching leadership development in the school context. A range of strong contextualized programmes, head teacher’s leadership style and the school culture of collegiality, shared vision and values, can foster teacher leadership in the school. This work should be useful to school leaders and policy-makers keen to address the pervasive teacher apathy and attrition rates.

Transformation Leadership and Change Management

Change and how to lead it successfully has become the foremost topic in the minds of library professionals. However, libraries’ track record at change is not very good even as technology and other market place drivers have radically altered the very nature of change itself. Most librarians do not understand transformational change or how to lead it, which is causing virtually all of the change-related problems they are now facing. The seminal argument that is examined in this volume is that change and change management will largely depend on the type of leadership style that librarians adopt because no change can be conceived of without the active involvement of librarians as primary instruments of change. As such, this volume addresses the questions as to whether librarians in India follow Transformational Leadership Style which is crucial for effective and efficient change management.

The Role of Leadership in Conducting Orchestras

This book examines the leadership role of the orchestral conductor. Conducting is one of the most visible manifestations of leadership in action. Because of this, references to conductor leadership can be found in literature on management and studies into organizational leadership as well as corporate-leadership seminars. However, issues of leadership appear to form only a tangential part of conductor training and development. Compared to the in-depth study of musicianship and gestural technique, leadership appears to be a skill left to ‘on-the-job’ experience. In order to explore further the nature of the conductor’s leadership role, a survey of 31 aspiring conductors from eleven different countries forms the original research element of this book. The survey material is analysed and then discussed with reference to established leadership theory. In addition, reference is made to the views of established conductors to be found in openly available interviews. The conclusion proposes three elements to understanding conductor leadership: exploring personal authenticity, two theoretical leadership frameworks, and practical suggestions for accelerating leadership experience.

Literature on educational leadership and management also suggests that successful school improvement depends on the quality of leadership at schools. There is a general held opinion among the educators and researchers that school improvement is directly related to the nature of school leadership. An effective educational leadership deals with the transformation of school, for the accomplishment of its aims and objectives (Kunwar, 2001).

Leadership, Generations and Small Business

The Small Business Administration (2009) reported the small business sector employs approximately half of U.S. workers and creates 60–80% of all new jobs. The U.S. workforce is now comprised of four different generational cohort groups, each group with its own history, value-shaping experiences, and motivational patterns. This is a quantitative study, a survey of leaders in the direct-to-consumer catalog industry with revenues ranging from $15–100 million.

The second purpose of this research was to determine how well the degree of leadership style predicts organizational outcomes in these small business organizations. This research bridges a gap in the literature on leadership styles, organizational outcomes and the generations.

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution Новинка

The Greatest Show on Earth: The Evidence for Evolution

Charles Darwin's masterpiece, "On the Origin of Species", shook society to its core on publication in 1859. Darwin was only too aware of the storm his theory of evolution would provoke but he would surely have raised an incredulous eyebrow at the controversy still raging a century and a half later. Evolution is accepted as scientific fact by all reputable scientists and indeed theologians, yet millions of people continue to question its veracity. In "The Greatest Show on Earth" Richard Dawkins takes on creationists, including followers of 'Intelligent Design' and all those who question the fact of evolution through natural selection. Like a detective arriving on the scene of a crime, he sifts through fascinating layers of scientific facts and disciplines to build a cast-iron case: from the living examples of natural selection in birds and insects; the 'time clocks' of trees and radioactive dating that calibrate a timescale for evolution; the fossil record and the traces of our earliest ancestors; to confirmation from molecular biology and genetics. All of this, and much more, bears witness to the truth of evolution. "The Greatest Show on Earth" comes at a critical time: systematic opposition to the fact of evolution is now flourishing as never before, especially in America. In Britain and elsewhere in the world, teachers witness insidious attempts to undermine the status of science in their classrooms. Richard Dawkins provides unequivocal evidence that boldly and comprehensively rebuts such nonsense. At the same time he shares with us his palpable love of the natural world and the essential role that science plays in its interpretation. Written with elegance, wit and passion, it is hard-hitting, absorbing and totally convincing.

In today's economy, maximizing the performance of every employee is critical to business survival and growth. Gen Y—sometimes called Millennials—provides an enticing opportunity for employers to increase their short-term profitability and create a long-term competitive advantage. Almost 80 million strong, Gen Y is the fastest growing segment in the US workforce—and now comprises the entire 18 to 32 demographic. Along with their ever-present cell phone and occasional backpack, Gen Y brings tremendous potential and timely skills to the workplace (just ask, they’ll tell you). However, Gen Y can be notoriously difficult to attract, retain, motivate, and develop. Gen Y's new approach to work makes them a growing challenge or strategic opportunity—depending entirely on how you choose to employ them.
