Restore Creativity and Trust to Your Workplace Much has changed since Driving Fear Out of the Workplace first made the undiscussable discussable back in 1991. Advances in technology, new employee/employer relations, and the corporate push to optimize intellectual capital have introduced a host of new workplace anxieties that, left unaddressed, can seriously inhibit individual performance and cripple a company's ability to compete. Which is why, in this revised edition, authors Ryan and Oestreich revisit their original, best-selling work to confront the fears that permeate today's organizations--so that they can become the high-trust, high-performance organizations of tomorrow. This insightful book digs deeply into the root causes of fear and the pervasive 'flu of mistrust' that weakens motivation and commitment. --Terrence E. Deal and M. K. Key, authors of Corporate Celebration: Play, Purpose, and Passion at Work You'll discover: * How fear prevents people from doing their best * How fear operates in organizations How to build business relationships without fear...and much more! This work is a timely antidote to the insecurities of workers faced with the pervasive push toward leaner, meaner organizations.

​Angst gilt allgemein als unerwünscht und wird oft totgeschwiegen. Das ist gerade im Arbeitsumfeld und in der BWL der Fall. Dabei kann Angst starke Auswirkungen auf Mitarbeiter, Unternehmenskultur und wirtschaftlichen Erfolg haben – allerdings nicht nur negative, sondern gerade auch motivierende und unterstützende. Dieses Buch erklärt ausführlich die Mechanismen, nach denen die Angst Erkenntnissen von Neurowissenschaften und Psychologie zufolge funktioniert. Es gibt dazu Empfehlungen für Führungskräfte, woran sich Ängste erkennen lassen und wie sie im Management zum Vorteil von Unternehmen und Mitarbeitern eingesetzt werden können.

Leadership that makes a difference takes guts and confidence, plus belief in oneself and belief in the key players in the organization. It is built on trust, not fear. Scared people spend a lot more time plotting their survival than working productively, so The Fear- Free Organization has zero tolerance for bullies, vicious gossip, undermining behaviours, hijacking tactics, political jockeying for position or favouritism. Instead, it works on inspiration. Evidence from the new frontiers of neuroscience shows that individuals and organizations are more successful when people are encouraged to take risks, to explore new ideas, and to channel their energies in ways that work for them. The Fear -Free Organization is a ground-breaking new book that reveals how our new understanding of the neurobiology of the self - how the brain constructs the person - can transform for the better the way our businesses and organizations work.

Culture and Trust in Technology-Driven Organizations provides insight into the important role that culture and trust can play in the success of high-technology organizations. This book reviews the literature and results of an empirical study that investigated the relationship between mechanistic and organic cultures and the level of trust in technology-based organizations. The book outlines the literature on organizational trust and culture and the role theorists believe they play in the success of a changing domestic and global business environment. It identifies ways of defining culture and trust as well as the survey instruments used to measure them. The book then examines the results of two studies that demonstrate the connection between organizational culture and trust. The two studies were conducted at separate times using data collected from several companies within a three-hour radius of each other. These companies are highly dependent upon the ability to identify, hire, and retain highly skilled knowledge workers. These workers are critical for the companies to successfully compete within the scope of their business and expand into their current and other markets. The book provides a practitioner’s guide—based on the literature review and the results of the studies examined—that can be used to assess, diagnose, and improve employees’ perception of their work culture and improve trust found in organizations. This guide provides management with actions and activities that should be considered when handling the day-to-day business of the organization. If followed, these activities can be instrumental in designing a culture that leads to success and ease of operation for the organization and its members.

A wide-ranging look at the allure and changing significance of work.With seductions, misunderstandings, and misinformation everywhere, this immensely readable book calls for a new contract--with ourselves. Drawing from history, mythology, literature, pop culture, and practical experience, Ciulla probes the many meanings of work or its meaninglessness and asks: Why are so many of us letting work take over our lives and trying to live in what little time is left? What has happened to the old, unspoken contract between worker and employer? Why are young people not being disloyal when they regularly consider job-changing? Employers can't promise as much to workers as before. Is that because they promise so much to stockholders? Why are there mass layoffs and "downsizing" in a time of unequaled corporate prosperity? And why are the most common lies in business about satisfactory employee performance? The traditional contract between employers and employees is over. This thoughtful and provocative study shows how to replace it by the one we make with ourselves. From the Hardcover edition.

Service providers are increasingly called upon to serve clients at home, a setting even a seasoned professional can find difficult to negotiate. From monitoring the health of older populations to managing paroled offenders, preventing child abuse, and reunifying families, home-based services require models that ensure positive outcomes and address the ethical dilemmas that might arise in such sensitive contexts. The contributors to this volume are national experts in diverse fields of social work practice, policy, and research. Treating the home as an ecological setting that guides human development and family interaction, they present rationales for and overviews of evidence-based models across an array of populations and fields of practice. Part 1 provides historical background and contemporary applications for home-based services, highlighting ethical, administrative, and supervision issues and summarizing the social policies that shape service delivery. Part 2 addresses home-based practice in such fields as child and adult mental health, school social work, and hospice care, detailing the particular population being treated, the policy and agency context, theories and empirical data, and practice guidelines. Part 3, the editors present a unifying framework and suggest future directions for home-based social work.

Change is the new norm in society, and it's having a devastating impact on organizations. The proof? Insecure, demoralized employees and the lowest levels ever of employee engagement. North America employee engagement is between 26-30 percent, and in Asia it's between 6-12 percent. That's a lot of untapped employee potential! In Conscious Culture, Joanna Barclay shares thirty years of business transformation experience. Leaders learn how to awaken the life-force energy within values, ethics, and leadership that ignites performance and employee engagement. With the ABCs of culture change, she provides a blueprint for leaders to consciously create a high-performing, values-driven organization. Values energize us-they give us joy when they are lived and frustration when they are not. They embody our heart and soul, calling us to action and helping us perform to our highest potential. Leaders will learn the importance of facilitative leadership and how to tap the wisdom of the group, unify employees, and connect hearts and minds to create a WOW culture. Conscious Culture is for leaders who want to: · become an employer of choice and build a high-performing work environment · learn how to generate greater engagement and increase productivity · build a new culture after a merger or acquisition · transition from personal excellence to organizational excellence How are you consciously investing in your culture-or do you have unconscious, default culture? "In 2011, Joanna was integral in transforming my client engagement network from a loose committee to a strong leadership team. This was achieved through the use of the Barrett's Cultural Transformation Tools. But the best tool of all was Joanna herself." Daniel Leclair, director general, Public Works and Government Services Canada

Nach ihren ersten zwei Wochen als neuer CEO von DecisionTech fragte sich Kathryn Petersen angesichts der dortigen Probleme, ob es wirklich richtig gewesen war, den Job anzunehmen. Sie war eigentlich froh ï¿1⁄2ber die neue Aufgabe gewesen. Doch hatte sie nicht ahnen kï¿1⁄2nnen, dass ihr Team so fï¿1⁄2rchterlich dysfunktional war und die Teammitglieder sie vor eine Herausforderung stellen wï¿1⁄2rden, die sie niemals zuvor so erlebt hatte ... In "Die 5 Dyfunktionen eines Teams" begibt sich Patrick Lencioni in die faszinierende und komplexe Welt von Teams. In seiner Leadership-Fabel folgt der Leser der Geschichte von Kathryn Petersen, die sich mit der ultimativen Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrise konfrontiert sieht: die Einigung eines Teams, das sich in einer solchen Unordnung befindet, dass es den Erfolg und das ï¿1⁄2berleben des gesamten Unternehmens gefï¿1⁄2hrdet. Im Verlauf der Geschichte enthï¿1⁄2llt Lencioni die fï¿1⁄2nf entscheidenden Dysfunktionen, die oft dazu fï¿1⁄2hren, dass Teams scheitern. Er stellt ein Modell und umsetzbare Schritte vor, die zu einem effektiven Team fï¿1⁄2hren und die fï¿1⁄2nf Dysfunktionen beheben. Diese Dysfunktionen sind: - Fehlendes Vertrauen, - Scheu vor Konflikten, - Fehlendes Engagement, - Scheu vor Verantwortung, - Fehlende Ergebnis-Orientierung. Wie in seinen anderen Bï¿1⁄2chern hat Patrick Lencioni eine fesselnde Fabel geschrieben, die eine wichtige Botschaft fï¿1⁄2r alle enthï¿1⁄2lt, die danach streben, auï¿1⁄2ergewï¿1⁄2hnliche Teamleiter und Fï¿1⁄2hrungskrï¿1⁄2fte zu werden.
