            Leadership Is Language: The Hidden Power of What You Say and What You Don't (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            Few of us realize that much of our language in the workplace inhibits creative problem-solving and escalates uncertainty and stress. In both high-pressure situations and everyday scenarios, in each meeting and email, we have the opportunity to empower our colleagues. Former U.S. ...Navy Captain David Marquet drew on his experiences transforming the USS Santa Fe from the worst-performing submarine in its fleet to the best to write Turn the Ship Around! Marquet calls his approach Intent-Based Leadership, a set of principles and tools that help leaders empower their people to take responsibility and address challenges without waiting to be told what to do. His new book expands on those principles with a fresh approach to workplace communication. Marquet's insights and examples show how small changes in language can lead to dramatic changes in impact. Praise for Turn the Ship Around! 'I don't know of a finer model of this kind of empowering leadership than Captain Marquet. And in the pages that follow you will find a model for your pathway' Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People 'To say I'm a fan of David Marquet would be an understatement... I'm a fully fledged groupie. He is the kind of leader who comes around only once a generation. He is the kind of leader who doesn't just know how to lead, he knows how to build leaders. His ideas and lessons are invaluable to anyone who wants to build an organization that will outlive them' Simon Sinek, optimist and author of Start with Why

            In Everybody Matters, CEO Bob Chapman and bestselling author Raj Sisodia challenge traditional thinking about how to run a business and how to be an inspirational leader. Starting in 1997, Barry-Wehmiller CEO Bob Chapman has pioneered a dramatically different approach to leadersh...ip that creates off-the-charts morale, loyalty, creativity, and business performance. At Barry-Wehmiller, every single person matters, just like in a family. That's not a cliche on a mission statement; it's the bedrock of the company's success. In Everybody Matters, Chapman and co-author Raj Sisodia show how any organization can stop viewing its employees are simply func-tions, to be moved around, 'managed' with carrots and sticks, or discarded at will. By doing so, disengaged workers begin to share their gifts and talents toward a shared future. Uninspired workers stop feeling that their jobs have no meaning. And everyone stops counting the minutes until it's time to go home. Everybody Matters chronicles Chapman's journey to find his true calling and provides clear steps to transform your own workplace, whether you lead two people or two hundred thousand. 'If you're ready for a new way of doing business, this is the book for you' Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell Is Human and Drive 'Bob Chapman is on a mission to change the way businesses treat their employees' Inc.magazine

            It would be un-lean for public administrators to start from scratch implementing Lean initiatives when there is so much to learn from existing endeavors. Lean seeks standard work. Fifty states and thousands of municipalities conduct similar processes. What can be learned from the... experiences of others on the Lean journey? A Public-Sector Journey to Lean describes the application of Lean process improvement principles and techniques to governmental organizations. The core concepts are illustrated by using specific examples drawn from Lean initiatives, particularly those underway in New England. Each chapter identifies the challenges faced by public sector in the development of a Lean program. Common pitfalls are discussed frankly, along with a range of potential countermeasures. Examples of projects and profiles of Lean practitioners are interspersed to illustrate the lessons learned. While acknowledging the practical differences between for-profit and non-profit enterprises, this book demonstrates that principles of Lean apply equally as well to all sectors. The Appendices provide a curriculum for White, Yellow, and Green Belt training programs. The hands-on approach to Lean training includes hypothetical scenarios that can be used to simulate Kaizen mapping projects.

            Over the past 40 years, Tom Stanley and his daughter Sarah Stanley Fallaw have been involved in research examining how self-made, economically successful Americans became that way. Despite the publication of The Millionaire Next Door, The Millionaire Mind, and others, myths about... wealth in American still abound. Government officials, journalists, and many American still tend to confuse income with wealth. A new generation of household financial managers are hearing from so-called experts in personal financial management due to the proliferation of the cottage industry of financial blogs, podcasts, and the like. In many cases, these outlets are simply experiences shared without science, case studies without data based on broader populations. Therefore, the authors decided to take another look at millionaires in the United States to examine what changes could be seen 20 years after the original publication of The Millionaire Next Door. In this book the authors highlight how specific decisions, behaviors, and characteristics align with the discipline of wealth building, covering areas such as consumption, budgeting, careers, investing, and financial management in general. They include results from quantitative studies of wealth as well as case studies of individuals who have been successful in building wealth. They discuss general paths to building wealth on your own, focusing specifically on careers and lifestyles associated with each path, and what it takes to be successful in each.
