Success Formula

Success Formula

What do successful organizations and smart leaders have in common? They deliver outstanding value to their stakeholders. Interviews with over 80 leading organizations in private, public and third sectors from all over the world have led Andrew Kakabadse to a fascinating insight: organizations where stakeholder engagement was highest were not those led by charismatic and visionary leaders, but by a culture of delivering outstanding value. Through his research, he found two different approaches at work. In strategy-led organizations, senior management has a clear notion of how value can be created and enacts a strategy to achieve it with the support of key managers and board members. Value-delivery-led organizations approach value creation differently. In these organizations, the leadership gathers evidence from internal and external stakeholders to determine the value the organization is delivering today and can deliver in the future. A strategy is then put in place to support those findings and is deliberately exposed to challenges from stakeholders to create engagement. The Success Formula demonstrates how value-delivery-led organizations are outperforming their strategy-led counterparts and how the world's best organizations deliver value to their stakeholders, with examples drawn from Anglo American, Deutsche Bank, Citibank, Jaguar/Landrover, Microsoft, BMW and Alfa Bank. This authoritative guide shows leaders how to improve the way they gather meaningful evidence to create a value-delivery culture that maximizes the benefits for their organizations and stakeholders.

Handbook of Business Legitimacy

Handbook of Business Legitimacy

This Handbook forms part of wider research in responsibility, ethics and legitimacy of corporations. Through an interdisciplinary perspective with comparative integration of sociological, politological, philosophical, theological, ethical, economic, legal, linguistic and communication theoretical approaches this Handbook will clarify how the interrelation between company and environment is mediated by legitimating notions in public spaces and public relations; how and why these notions have changed radically; how these transformations strike on the epistemological as well as practical dimension of business companies; and the problems involved in these transformations at the macro-, meso- and micro levels.The Handbook begins with a historical introduction and chronology of the development of business legitimacy, providing a comprehensive assessment of the concept's evolution and identifying the most influential authors and their works. These may be divided into authors who follow (1) a philosophical, sociological, or conceptual tradition in management and leadership in their treatment of legitimacy and those who belong to the research tradition of (2) application of the concept in management science and leadership as well as in organizational theory and business practice in the interdisciplinary perspective of the different approaches.The Handbook continues with systematic approaches and major themes developed in the concept of business legitimacy. Contributions here may be conceptual, empirical/applied or case studies. The different parts of the volume deal with the different topics to which business legitimacy has been applied, with how legitimacy is relevant in the various operational areas of the firm, and with the legitimacy theory's responses to some of the most important issues that businesses and organizations currently face.

Behind the Executive Door

Behind the Executive Door

Sigmund Freud meets Peter Drucker ... Behind the Executive Door is a revealing look at the behavior of top business leaders-and how the next level of aspiring managers can learn to navigate the political and personal landscape. Based on over 25 years of psychotherapy and consulting experiences, as well as extensive empirical research, Karol Wasylyshyn has identified a dynamic continuum of executive behaviors that are manifested in three specific types of business leaders - Remarkable, Perilous, and Toxic. She describes these types in accessible terms with the intertwined goals of helping readers (1) recognize these behaviors and leadership types and (2) leverage this information to increase their savvy and effectiveness in the workplace. In the wake of Sarbanes-Oxley and the increased scrutiny of business executives, we have learned that how they lead is often their undoing - or at least it is a pressing development need and/or potential derailment factor. In short, despite financial or strategic smarts, ineffective leadership behavior de-motivates talented employees, has adverse effects on productivity, and jeopardizes positive business results. Conversely, we can recognize the qualities of effective leadership behavior, which is largely a function of emotional intelligence, the ability to tap into the needs and motivations of others and bring out their best performance.In Behind the Executive Door, the author provides a wide variety of tools and exercises to help the reader identify the behavior traits of their organizations' leaders -and hone their own approaches to achieve positive results. In the process, readers will also gain insights and skills to manage laterally and down, as well as up the organizational ladder. The concepts can be applied in any type of organization - private or public, for-profit or non-profit. The result is not only a better understanding of organizational politics and leadership behavior, but a practical guide to making important ca...

CFO Survival Guide

CFO Survival Guide

Praise for the CFO Survival Guide "The CFO Survival Guide is a bold, insightful account of the subtle yet powerful interdependencies connecting human values, beliefs, and behaviors to the work performed by people and the wealth this work creates. The Guide's Declaration of Interdependence will challenge aspiring CFOs and corporate leaders to reexamine their understanding of how wealth is created, sustained, and managed in the twenty-first century, and what effect their roles have on wealth-creation and the evolution of the living organizations they lead." -Charles S. Royer SAS Institute, Public Sector-Federal Government Strategic Solutions Major, U.S. Marine Corps (1990-2003) "Stenzel and Stenzel shatter the myth that financial leadership is about money and numbers. They prove that to create wealth, a great CFO must be quantitatively savvy, emotionally intelligent, and inspirational." -Richard E. Boyatzis Professor of Organizational Behavior at Case Western Reserve University Coauthor with Daniel Goleman and Annie McKee of the international bestseller Primal Leadership: Realizing the Power of Emotional Intelligence "More important to creating a robust bottom line is to build and nurture relationships with employees, customers, suppliers, community, and nature. Catherine and Joe Stenzel give CFOs a much-needed wake-up call." -H. Thomas Johnson 2001 Shingo Laureate Professor of Business Administration, Portland State University "Not your usual CFO portrayal. The Stenzels create a compelling argument for why and how putting CFOs in touch with people is central to organizational success." -Paul Sharman President, Focused Management, Inc.
