Ethical leadership : creating and sustaining an ethical business culture by Andrew Leigh( Book )
10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"The demand from society for organizations to be ethical and responsible is growing, and the cost of irresponsible behavior is often huge. Unethical action can dramatically affect the future of a company or destroy it all together. Ethical Leadership shines a light on the role of both culture and ethics in organizations by making the issues more transparent, accessible and above all, connected. Business leaders are now accountable for showing that they have the correct ethical policies and culture in place. Cultural and behavioral change consultant Andrew Leigh focuses on the fact that ethical culture is manifest in the actual behavior and attitudes of all staff, rather than in policy documents. While there are very few absolutes when it comes to ethics, there are clear ways to be a responsible leader, and Ethical Leadership is full of practical strategies, case studies and action points which will help leaders to improve and manage ethical culture in their organizations"--

The secrets of success in management : 20 ways to survive and thrive by Andrew Leigh( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
"Succeeding as a manager has never been fraught with so many potential dangers and bear traps. For example, a few years ago a nice slot in the City of London must have looked fairly enticing. Today, being a manager of a financial services company, let alone a bank, must now feel fairly vulnerable. The Secrets of Success of Management offers 20 Ways to Survive and Thrive, without mentioning specific industries, particular companies or world regions to direct your career towards. Instead, it offers the essence of management, distilled wisdom if you like, that falls into three main areas: a) manage Yourself; b) manage Others; c) manage the Organisation One can argue about these three categories, but the point about the book is to present some of the essential skills that a new or experienced manager really needs to master as part of taking on an exciting and sometimes difficult role. For instance, in Managing Yourself, any potentially successful manager needs to understand the importance of emotional intelligence and how to develop their own. Or, in Managing Others, as a manager you are unlikely to succeed unless you can show some degree of leadership, or know how to manage your team."--Publisher's description

What do financial markets think of war in Iraq by Andrew Leigh( Book )
13 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
We analyze financial market data in order to produce an ex-ante assessment of the economic consequences of war with Iraq. The novel feature of our analysis derives from the existence of a market for Saddam Securities, ' a new future traded on an online betting exchange that pays only if Saddam Hussein is ousted. A variety of tests suggest that this future's price provides a plausible estimate of the probability of war. The spot oil price has moved closely with the Saddam Security, suggesting that war raises oil prices by around $10 per barrel. Futures prices imply that markets expect these large immediate disruptions to dissipate quickly, with prices returning to pre-war levels within about a year and a half. Evidence on the long-run effects is fragile, and while prices are probably expected to fall a little as a result of war, any oil dividend' will be minimal. We find large effects in equity markets: and war lowers the value of U.S. equities by around 15 percent. This effect is concentrated in the consumer discretionary sector, airlines and IT; the prospect of war bolsters the gold and energy sectors. Analyzing option prices, we find that the large estimated average effects of war reflect the market pricing in a range of different scenarios - a 70 percent probability that it will lead to market declines of 0 to 15 percent, a 20 percent chance of 15 to 30 percent declines, and a 10 percent risk of a fall in excess of 30 percent. Across countries, the most extreme effects are on the stock markets of Turkey, Israel, and several European nations. Countries that are highly enmeshed in the world economy, or net oil importers, are most likely to experience adverse effects from war

Competing approaches to forecasting elections : economic models, opinion polling and prediction markets by Andrew Leigh( Book )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 41 libraries worldwide
We review the efficacy of three approaches to forecasting elections: econometric models that project outcomes on the basis of the state of the economy; public opinion polls; and election betting (prediction markets). We assess the efficacy of each in light of the 2004 Australian election. This election is particularly interesting both because of innovations in each forecasting technology, and also because the increased majority achieved by the Coalition surprised most pundits. While the evidence for economic voting has historically been weak for Australia, the 2004 election suggests an increasingly important role for these models. The performance of polls was quite uneven, and predictions both across pollsters, and through time, vary too much to be particularly useful. Betting markets provide an interesting contrast, and a slew of data from various betting agencies suggests a more reasonable degree of volatility, and useful forecasting performance both throughout the election cycle and across individual electorates
Happiness and the human development index : Australia is not a paradox by Andrew Leigh( Book )
15 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
In "Happiness and the Human Development Index: The Paradox of Australia," Blanchflower and Oswald (2005) observe an apparent puzzle: they claim that Australia ranks highly in the Human Development Index (HDI), but relatively poorly in happiness. However, when we compare their happiness data with the HDI, Australia appears happier, not sadder, than its HDI score would predict. This conclusion also holds when we turn to a larger cross-national dataset than the one used by Blanchflower and Oswald, when we analyse life satisfaction in place of happiness, and when we measure development using GDP per capita in place of the HDI. Indeed, in the World Values Survey, only one other country (Iceland) has a significantly higher level of both life satisfaction and happiness than Australia. Our findings accord with numerous cross-national surveys conducted since the 1940s, which have consistently found that Australians report high levels of wellbeing
Charisma : the secrets of making a lasting impression by Andrew Leigh( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 29 libraries worldwide
Everyone knows someone they would describe as charismatic . They always make a strong and lasting first impression, have an air of confidence and a true presence. They build good rapport with people, make an impact and are remembered. How do they do this? Is there something they know or do differently to the rest of us? What makes them this way? People aren't born with charisma, it is a learned skill. The Charisma Effect helps you to develop your interpersonal skills so you too can make an impact immediately. Drawing lessons from a successful and long-running two-day personal development programme, this is a tried, tested and trusted formula that reveals everything you need to be charismatic
