The good fight : use productive conflict to get your team and organization back on track

January 14, 2020
Davey, Liane, 1972- author.
212 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
"More productivity. Less drama. It all starts with a healthy conflict culture. In the modern workplace, conflict has become a dirty word. After all, conflict is antithetical to teamwork, employee engagement, and a positive company culture. Or is it? The truth is that our teams and organizations require conflict to get things done. But we avoid conflict and build up conflict debt by deferring and dodging the difficult decisions. Our organizations are paying the price-becoming less productive, less innovative, and less competitive. Individuals are paying, too-suffering from overwhelming workloads, endless drama, and sleepless nights. In The Good Fight, Liane Davey shows you how to create the productive conflict your organization needs to get along and get stuff done. Drawing on her twenty-year career as an advisor to the C-Suite, Davey shares real-world examples and practical tools you and your team can use to handle even the most contentious conflicts as allies-instead of adversaries. Filled with strategies you'll use again and again, The Good Fight is an essential field guide for leaders at all levels." -- Provided by publisher.

Fanocracy : turning fans into customers and customers into fans

January 10, 2020
Scott, David Meerman, author.
[New York, New York] : Portfolio/Penguin, [2020]
xvii, 284 pages ; 22 cm
Includes index.
Our story -- Strength through fandom -- The power of fan-centric business -- Get closer than usual -- Let go of your creations -- Give more than you have to -- Build identity to become more than the product -- Be smart about influencers -- Break down barriers -- Listen to rehumanize -- Tell the truth, especially when it hurts -- Develop employees who are fans -- A passionate life -- Share your fandom.
"Fandom isn't just for actors, athletes, musicians, and authors anymore. It can be rocket fuel for any business or nonprofit that chooses to focus on inspiring and nurturing true fans. The most powerful marketing force in the world isn't social media, email blasts, search ads, or even those 15 second commercials before a YouTube video. It's fandom. David Meerman Scott and his daughter Reiko are very different - one is a baby boomer business strategist, the other a millennial medical student. But both noticed that the kind of enthusiasm they once reserved for pleasures like the Grateful Dead (David) and Harry Potter (Reiko) now extends to all sorts of companies and organizations. So they teamed up to explore a big question: Why do some brands, even in supposedly boring categories like car insurance and enterprise software, attract not just customers but raving fans? The key is creating what they call a "fanocracy" - an organization that puts the needs and wishes of fans ahead of every other priority. It can be scary, at first, to focus on intangibles like community, generosity, and fun, rather than squeezing every penny from each interaction. But those who apply the strategies in Fanocracy are more likely to dominate their categories. And beyond the financial benefits, fanocracies spread more joy and inspiration to the world at large"-- Provided by publisher.

The new leadership literacies : thriving in a future of extreme disruption and distributed everything

December 16, 2019
Johansen, Robert, author.
Oakland, California : Berrett-Koehler Publishers, BK Business book, [2017]
xii, 176 pages : illustrations ; 25 cm
Introduction: Twisting toward distributed everything -- 1. The new literacy of looking backward from the future -- 2. Moving toward a future that rewards clarity--but punishes certainty -- 3. The new literacy of voluntary fear engagement -- 4. Moving toward a future of gaming for grit -- 5. The new literacy of leadership for shape-shifting organizations -- 6.

The new literacy of creating and sustaining positive energy -- 10. Moving toward a future where leaders are body hackers -- Conclusion: What leaders will need to do -- Future readiness self-assessment.
"A rapid and massively disruptive shift from centralized to distributed organizations has already begun. But current leadership practices were designed for large centralized organizations, making them increasingly obsolete. Bob Johansen, who has been projecting future trends from Silicon Valley since 1968, outlines five literacies leaders need to develop to cope with this brave new world. Johansen says leaders must project into the future themselves and look backwards to make sure they are preparing for potential new developments. They need to use gaming to voluntarily immerse themselves in the things they're fearful about and deal with them. They have to develop forms of distributed leadership for organizations that have no center, grow from the edges, and can't be controlled. In a globalized world they must master multimedia leadership--have presence and influence even when they're not physically present. And to stay on top of all this they need to be extremely fit, physically and mentally, to keep their own positive energy and that of their organizations high. Johansen presents dramatic and mind-expanding examples of how forward-looking organizations are developing these literacies and offers readers sage advice on how to cultivate them." -- provided by publisher.
