2. The Art of Convening Authentic Engagement in Meetings, Gatherings, and Conversations (Large Print 16pt) - Patricia Neal, Craig Neal

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £23.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'Meetings are a waste of time'' is a sentiment many of us share, which is tragic because meetings bring us together as human beings. To achieve the kind of meaning or breakthrough results most of us really yearn for when we gather, the key quality needed is authentic engagement: a genuine expression of what is true for us, and an attentive listening to what is true for others. Why it so often eludes us can be a matter of habit, distrust, lack of attention, or fear. As cofounders of Heartland Inc., Craig and Patricia Neal have led over 170 of their acclaimed Thought Leader Gatherings with leaders from over 800 diverse organizations. Their new book shares for the first time the unique and powerful Art of Convening model - developed in these gatherings and refined over six years of intensive trainings - which brings authentic engagement and meaning to any group that comes together for any purpose. Convening goes beyond facilitating. Convening creates an environment in which all voices are heard, profound exchanges take place, and transformative action results. The heart of this book is the Convening Wheel - a series of nine steps, or aspects, that bring the practices and principles needed for authentic engagement together as a whole. The book provides exercises, stories, and questions to help you master both the inner and outer dimensions of this work - because in convening, the state of the convener is equally as important as the physical preparations. Convening works in any setting and can be adapted to virtually any group process. With this book you have all the tools you need to develop this essential life and leadership skill, one that will lead to improved outcomes in your organization, community, family, and relationships.

6. The Book of Mirdad (Large Print 16pt) - Mikhail Naimy

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

The Book of Mirdad, the timeless allegorical story which has touched the hearts of so many readers, continues to show new generations how it is possible to expand one's consciousness, to uncover God in man by dissolving man's sense of duality. Mikhail Naimy, in a similar style to Gibran, unravels one layer after another, showing that the words of his message have descended from some mysterious source. The book is essentially a set of question and answer between Mirdad and his disciples, especially his chief disciple, Naronda. These dialogues occurred during the time he was admitted as a servant in the monastery of Altar Peak, built where Noah's Ark came to rest after the flood waters subsided. Mirdad's teachings cover all the important life issues such as love, the master - servant relationship, creative silence, money, the moneylender and the debtor, the cycle of time and death, repentance, old age, and so on. The culmination, and indeed the message, is that Mirdad's own Ark is the Ark of Holy Understanding, which will bring humankind through another deluge, greater than Noah's, when Heaven will be revealed on Earth. Mirdad's words are the words of an enlightened Sufi master.

12. Peer-To-Peer Leadership Why the Network Is the Leader (Large Print 16pt) - Mila N. Baker

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Why is it that trust in leadership and the success of leaders seem to erode as we develop and refine more sophisticated models for leading, such as emotional intelligence, transformational leadership, and adaptive leadership? Mila Baker believes that most of today's leadership theories are old wines in new skins and still rely on the leader - follower hierarchy. Yet the idea of hierarchy is breaking down everywhere in society, from politics to religion to social relationships - and most particularly in computers and networking. Why should leadership be any different? Baker's inspiration is the peer - to - peer model of computing, which is also mirrored in social networking and crowdsource technologies. Baker shows that a network with ''equipotent'' nodes of power - think peer leaders - is infinitely more powerful than a ''client - server'' (i.e., leader - follower) network. Yet the typical organizational design still harkens back to the days of punch - card computers. By creating organizations with leaders at all levels, architects of peer - to - peer organizations can build flexibility, resiliency, and accountability. Baker still advocates the need for top - level executives and senior leaders but advises them to give up traditional notions of power and become focused on maintaining the health of the network rather than achieving personal leadership goals. Companies such as Gore and Herman Miller practice these principles and have achieved long - term success - Baker provides a structure to this approach that any organization can adapt.

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £18.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

In this rich compilation, Emeka Nwosu takes the reader to a journey of the issues that have helped to shape discourses on various aspects of the Nigerian state and society.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution and future of China's state-controlled capitalism.

Hank Paulson has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.

In DEALING WITH CHINA, Paulson draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:

  • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?
  • How does business really get done there?
  • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?
  • How can the U.S. negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?

Written in the same anecdote-rich, page-turning style as Paulson's bestselling memoir, On the Brink, DEALING WITH CHINA is certain to become the classic and definitive examination of how to engage China's leaders as they build their economic superpower.
