Delivering high performance : the third generation organisation by Douglas G Long( )

16 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 1,207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Douglas Long is the author of Third Generation Leadership and the Locus of Control which focused on the new understanding of what influences individuals' values, world views and the behaviours needed to facilitate leadership fit for the future. Here, in Delivering High Performance, he concentrates on individual, unit and organisational performance when an organisation is using a Third Generation Leadership approach. Leaders constantly seek high performance and high levels of staff engagement; but achieving either depends on the competence and commitment of individuals or groups. The relationships between these factors are complex. Many people are competent to do things - they have the ability - but are not prepared to do them. They lack the willingness, confidence or motivation and the readiness to perform. You can even have the most committed and capable people in the world, yet still miss performance targets if there are issues with other factors impacting on performance. This book is a response to enquiries from those excited by the prospect of a Third Generation Leadership approach but who still have to grapple with performance issues - people who want to obtain and maintain high performing organisations. In that sense it builds on the new knowledge imparted in Third Generation Leadership and the Locus of Control. It is a 'How to ... ' book that gives the reader practical tools that can be immediately applied and activities that can be undertaken in order to develop and maintain the required or even the desired level of performance."
The ethical kaleidoscope : values, ethics and corporate governance by Douglas G Long( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The study of corporate governance is a relatively modern development, with significant attention devoted to the subject only during the last fifty years. However, in recent years, awareness of issues and/or shortcomings in the governance of public and private, large and small, for-profit and not-for-profit organisations has become more widespread and, very often, almost instantaneous through social media. This has placed, and is placing, increasing pressure on company directors as they seek to guide their organisations through competitive maelstroms." -- Provided by publisher
Third generation leadership and the locus of control : knowledge, change and neuroscience by Douglas G Long( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First Generation Leadership (command and control) was the dominant model until the 1940s and Second Generation Leadership (compliance coupled with rewards and punishments) is still dominant today. In the information age this approach has come under increasing threat and it is being rejected by 'Generation Y ', threatening the longevity of traditional organisations. Third Generation Leadership is a new approach that elicits engagement, commitment, and enhanced accountability. This book is an introduction to the world of third generation leadership, which is based on understanding aspects of neu
Leadership lessons from the Trump presidency by Douglas G Long( )

3 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book seeks to demonstrate that we can learn from both "good" and "bad" leaders. It is in two parts. Part one looks at President Trump's behaviour from inauguration to impeachment. The ancient Greek concepts of Kairos and Chronos are used to indicate Trump was almost a natural fit for the USA of 2017. Part two considers the implications of his behaviour on the USA, the world at large, and for leadership overall. There is a temptation to consider only "good" leaders when asking what we can learn from others. This book explores the issue of what can be learned from any person in a leadership role no matter the value judgement we make of them. Part one explores Trump's behaviour to the moment of impeachment and the longer-term residual impacts this will have once his presidency is over. It shows that our value judgements tend to be based on perception and a priori assumptions. Part two explores what, no matter our leadership role, we can learn from the Trump event. Disruption is endemic in today's world. Today it often seems we are born, live in, and die in three quite different worlds. Yet, at its core, things have changed very little. Oligarchy has been a reality since time immemorial. Unless we are first "unfrozen" from the status quo, change tends to be more cosmetic than real. Donald Trump's presidency has the potential to be the unfreezing agent that enables "real" change through which new forms of both democracy and capitalism can emerge across the world"--
