Rethinking the future rethinking business, principles, competition, control & complexity, leadership, markets and the world by Rowan Gibson ( )
21 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 1,969 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a meeting place of minds. It provides a unique opportunity to gain insights into tomorrow from today's most highly-regarded business thinkers." "Rethinking The Future is about a world of increasing uncertainty in which the very nature of work, of organizations and of economics is changing. It is about the move away from traditional hierarchies and the democratization of power. It is about giant nation states and corporations giving way to global networks. Tomorrow's executives will need to understand business at a far more global and synergistic level than ever before, and to feel comfortable leading people who have learned to manage themselves. This is a book for those executives." "The book looks at how organizations can be redesigned to survive and thrive in tomorrow's hyper-competitive global environment. How they can learn to adapt to change and dramatically improve their performance. And how they should be 'managed', if at all." "Most importantly of all, the book gives readers a framework for understanding the big picture. It provides a panoramic perspective that puts all the pieces together in a coherent and easily understandable context. In fact, it represents an entire bookshelf condensed between two covers - a business education for the 21st Century. Rethinking The Future is essential reading for anyone concerned with business success beyond the next quarter."--Jacket
Geeks & geezers : how era, values, and defining moments shape leaders by Warren G Bennis ( Book )
9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,917 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Our youngest leaders matured in the glow of computer screens; our oldest in the shadow of the Depression and World War II. In a groundbreaking study of these two disparate groups - affectionately labeled "geeks" and "geezers" - leadership experts Warren G. Bennis and Robert J. Thomas set out to find how era and values shape those who lead. What they discovered was something even more profound: the powerful process through which leaders of any era emerge." "Geeks and Geezers will forever change how we view leadership, but also how we reflect on our own formative experiences. Illustrated by compelling interviews with extraordinary individuals under thirty-five and over seventy years of age, the authors present a new model that predicts who is likely to become and remain a leader - and explains why others fail to rise to the challenge. At its heart are what the authors call "crucibles" - utterly transformational experiences from which one can emerge either hopelessly broken or powerfully emboldened to learn and to lead."--BOOK JACKET

The temporary society by Warren G Bennis ( Book )
20 editions published between 1964 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here, readers will examine the implications of a world in which capitalism has become the primary economic model, in which freelance and contingent work arrangements predominate, where families struggle to reconcile home life and career, and governments take a backseat to the forces of global commerce. And the amazing part is that The Temporary Society was first published thirty years ago." "In these six essays - including "Democracy Is Inevitable," originally published in the Harvard Business Review - renowned business pundit Warren Bennis and Brandeis sociologist Philip Slater presented a take on the future that struck most of their contemporaries as being too farfetched. But in the years since, their predictions have materialized with uncanny accuracy, and Bennis has gone on to become one of today's most widely respected business thinkers." "Now, in this thirtieth anniversary edition of their seminal work, Bennis and Slater team up again to reflect on the events of the last three decades and look forward to the changes ahead."--BOOK JACKET
Transparency how leaders create a culture of candor by Warren G Bennis ( )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A highly readable work that exposes the biggest challenge in leadership. In this short and timely book, the authors-a powerhouse trio in the field of leadership-look at what conspires against "a culture of candor" in organizations to create disastrous results, and suggest ways that leaders can achieve healthy and honest openness. They explore the lightning-rod concept of "transparency"--Which has fast become the buzzword not only in business and corporate settings but in government and the social sector as well. Together Bennis, Goleman, and O'Toole explore why the containment of truth is the dearest held value of far too many organizations and suggest practical ways that organizations, their leaders, their members, and their boards can achieve openness. After years of dedicating themselves to research and theory, at first separately, and now jointly, these three leadership giants reveal the multifaceted importance of candor and show what promotes transparency and what hinders it. They describe how leaders often stymie the flow of information and the structural impediments that keep information from getting where it needs to go. This vital resource is written for any organization-business, government, and nonprofit-that must achieve a culture of candor, truth, and transparency.--Publisher description
