Leading with kindness how good people consistently get superior results by William F Baker ( )
13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Leading with Kindness identifies six ingredients of kindness - compassion, integrity, gratitude, authenticity, humility, and humor - none of which might readily spring to mind when envisioning the archetypal business leader. But they are absolutely essential to powerful leadership. The book also points out obstacles to each of the six qualities, and (crucially) offers real-world, everyday management and leadership approaches that build and demonstrate each one."--Jacket
Down the tube : an inside account of the failure of American television by William F Baker ( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In the beginning, commercial television was filled with promise. Offering convenient entertainment 'round the clock and easy access to the latest news and information, it became the nation's hearth, the reliable medium whenever anything out of the ordinary came along." "Today, the airwaves are inundated by drivel that panders to the audience's most base interests. Explaining that the United States - almost alone among the nations of the world - surrendered virtually the entire command of its public airwaves to the commercial sector. Down the Tube reveals that television's primary purpose has nothing to do with quality programming. Its main concern is to deliver certain audiences or demographic groups (e.g., women ages 18-49) to advertisers." "How did this happen? What went wrong? Is it too late?" "Drawing on years of first-hand experience, William F. Baker and George Dessart provide answers to these questions with new and astonishing insights and present questions of their own, covering such topics as: the most popular programs in the world and why they don't come from American television; seventy-five years of misregulation and how that has affected our news; the future entertainment capital of the western hemisphere: why it won't be in New York or Hollywood; how and why Generation X will improve children's programming; the surprising resilience of public television; and what you, your family, and friends can do to make television live up to its promise."--Jacket
Leading with kindness how good people consistently get superior results by William F Baker ( Recording )
7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the world of business, kindness is regarded as weakness--so the development of it as a leadership trait is sorely overlooked. It turns out however, that being kind is a crucial attribute of some of the world's most successful business leaders--leaders whose success is anchored in their integrity, credibility, vision, insight, inclusion, and fairness. And kindness is not some intangible quality that one either "has" or doesn't, it is a combination of quantifiable, learnable, and refinable traits and skills. Leading with kindness identifies six ingredients of kindness -- compassion, integrity, gratitude, authenticity, humility, and humor that are absolutely essential to powerful leadership. This audiobook also points out obstacles to each of the six qualities, and offers real-world, everyday management and leadership approaches that build and demonstrate each one. You are not a respected leader simply because you are nice, fun, and non-threatening. But if you are truly kind, genuinely committed to the welfare of your company and your people through thick and thin--you will reap the benefits of trust, honesty, commitment, and loyalty from the seeds of kindness you have sown
