What do sporting champions do, what makes winning teams, who is a good leader, why do only some teams keep winning while others win only for a while and then lose? Two IIMA alumni, Sports commentator and writer Harsha Bhogle and advertising and communication consultant Anita Bhogle, dig into examples from sport to see how they can benefit managers. Contrary to popular perception, ability is not a major distinguishing factor in success, especially as the level of competition increases. But if you combine your ability with the right attitude and the passion to excel, you too can become the best that you can be. That is the universal formula for winning that The Winning Way explores. For Anita and Harsha Bhogle, this book marks the completion of 300 successful corporate workshops of The Winning Way that they run. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Harsha Bhogle.

Inspire the people in your life to triumph - every day! We´ve been told all our lives that whether you win or lose isn´t important; it´s how you play the game that matters. This is true in sports, business, or any other endeavor. But how you ´´play the game´´ has a lot to do with its outcome. And a good coach - one who places respect and conviction above popularity, who is firm yet open to the players´ individual needs - can inspire their team to greatness, whether it is a football team, a work group, a committee, or a family. In this innovative program, management expert Ken Blanchard and winning NFL coach Don Shula team up to share their powerful secrets of effective coaching in everyday situations. You´ll learn: The five great leadership principles of the COACH acronym How to unleash the excellence in anyone The importance of vision, conviction, credibility and adaptability in today´s leaders Why and how to ´´walk your talk´´ And much more... The skills of a great coach can be just as effective in the boardroom or living room as on the playing field. Instead of merely telling people what to do, you can help inspire them to work together enthusiastically: following a powerful vision, tapping into their hidden talents, and soaring to greatness and success.

Il coach: motore ed energia della sua squadra: nello sport e nel lavoro. Il vero trascinatore e la spinta motivazionale del suo team! Ascolta come questo può accadere, ogni giorno - Il coaching nasce nel mondo dello sport, dove l´allenatore di un tempo si è progressivamente trasformato in quella figura fondamentale di colui che si occupa dell´intera gestione della squadra, in particolare degli aspetti motivazionali e dei rapporti umani. Un attento processo di interpretazione di questo ruolo ha fatto emergere alcune importanti similitudini con quello del coach motivazionale a cui oggi numerose aziende affidano i propri uomini per supportarli nei loro processi di crescita. Il libro ripercorre questo cammino interpretativo con lo scopo dichiarato di avvicinare il lettore al coaching seguendo da vicino l´esperienza vissuta sul campo da un coach e attraverso il suo racconto in prima persona. In questo modo risulta infatti immediatamente evidente l´essenza del processo evolutivo che il coaching è in grado di produrre negli individui e nelle aziende, e la sua capacità di diffondere una cultura di una formazione avanzata fruibile da chiunque. 1.

Game theory means rigorous strategic thinking. It’s the art of anticipating your opponent’s next moves, knowing full well that your rival is trying to do the same thing to you. Though parts of game theory involve simple common sense, much is counterintuitive, and it can only be mastered by developing a new way of seeing the world. Using a diverse array of rich case studies - from pop culture, TV, movies, sports, politics, and history - the authors show how nearly every business and personal interaction has a game-theory component to it. Mastering game theory will make you more successful in business and life, and this lively book is the key to that mastery.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio. 1.

Authentic leadership is a persuasive and popular idea that continues to gain traction in terms of management thinking. Authentic leaders give people a sense of control and agency that makes them feel better about themselves, their future and their work, sparking change and transformation. But authentic leadership can never be static if it is to be truly successful; authentic leaders need to reassess and reinvent themselves and their organisations in order to address the changing emotional and social demands of their followers. At the same time, in the midst of such renewal, it is vital for them to maintain their own authentic voice and power. Drawing on a host of examples, from executives of multinationals, political leaders and sports leaders, as well as nearly two decades of research, Yours Truly examines and explains the missing link in research into authentic leadership: how leaders strive for success, excellence and constant renewal while at the same time maintaining core principles. Margarita Mayo presents the three characteristics that differentiate authentic from nonauthentic leaders in a practical framework called the 3 Hs - Heart, Habits and Habitats - that listeners can use as a measurable guide to developing their own authentic power: Contagious passion that wins the hearts of others Setting new habits and empowering others to act on their behalf towards their vision Enriching their habitat to ensure long-lasting influence Ideal for managers, senior executives and aspiring leaders, Yours Truly captures the value of authentic leadership in transforming organisations, stripping away the apparently magical, innate charismatic qualities of leaders in order to showcase a less mysterious and more practical process that can be followed by anyone. 1.

Common Sense Wisdom is a short book with a big message about life and the important transitions, challenges, and changes planned or unplanned that we all must face from time to time. It is at moments like these that some common sense wisdom can help us understand what is happening or should happen, why it´s happening or why it should, how we should respond to it or initiate it, and how we can best apply the insights and lessons from those who have been there and done that to our own lives. Drawing upon his own life experiences and more than 30 years as an advisor and coach to executives, government officials, and people from all walks of life from Asia, to Europe, and the United States, Pepper shares the insights from these people in a way that will cause you to think about your life and career as never before. Common Sense Wisdom blends, in a unique way, quotes from ancient philosophers to modern-day business executives, sports figures, and thought leaders from Buddha to Baltasar Gracian and Goethe, to Winston Churchill, Mary Pickford, Oscar Wilde, Wayne Gretzky, and Margaret Thatcher to Walt Disney and Vaclav Havel, and applies them to life in the 21st century, a time when act or be acted upon takes on a whole new meaning about one´s life. The goal of Common Sense Wisdom is to give listeners the tools, understanding, and motivation to become their own career or life coaches and to lead themselves, and those around them, through life´s challenges, setbacks, and successes. Common Sense Wisdom offers critical insights into life that will help people find their own true north as they chart the course for their own journeys. 1. Language: English.

The fastest, easiest way to shift culture toward engagement and productivity. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture is a guide to transforming business by rethinking the workplace. Written by a team of trail-blazing leaders, this audiobook reveals the secrets of companies that discovered the power of culture and space. This insightful guide reveals what companies lose by viewing office space as something to manage or minimize. With practical tips and implementation details, the book helps the reader see that the workspace is, in fact, a crucial driver of productivity and morale. Change Your Space, Change Your Culture was born out of recent studies that expose truly outrageous ´´Oh, my God´´ realities: More than 70 percent of the workforce either hates their job or they are just going through the motions. Half of all office space is wasted. Those shattering facts exist because office space is generally regarded as ´´overhead´´ or ´´sunk cost´´. Most buildings today clearly communicate the low priority placed on people-friendly design. Poor workforce engagement is baked into the culture. This book provides guidance on turning this around, by rethinking and reshaping space to align with the way people work. Specifically, this book moves from the high-altitude view down to the details on how to: Discover the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to shift culture Add square footage by using space more effectively Boost employee engagement and vitality by the creative use of space Learn how space can become a powerful productivity tool We all know that design, space, and flow have a powerful effect on the human psyche. Our homes, museums, sports arenas, places of worship, and even airport terminals reveal that. Environment can inspire dread or enthusiasm, distraction or focus, collaboration or isolation. That´s why the office must be designed to inspire the desired culture and workflow. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Graham Halstead.

What does it take to do more with less? How can you do better than before, or better than others? How do you turn losses into wins, or near-bankruptcy into strong profitability, or abject failure into stellar success? The power of uplift enables any organization to do more with less, beat the competition, and perform better than ever. Leaders who uplift their employees´ passions, intellects, and commitments produce remarkable results. Based on original research from a seven-year global study, Uplifting Leadership reveals how leaders from diverse organizations inspired and uplifted their teams´ performance. Distilling the six common characteristics of leaders at high-performing organizations across business, sports, and education, authors Andy Hargreaves, Alan Boyle, and Alma Harris explore the nature of uplift, its impact on performance, and the ways to achieve it within and beyond an organization´s walls, revealing how leaders: Identify and articulate an inspiring dream that is coherently connected to the best of what the organization has been before. Pursue that dream at a sustainable pace without squandering resources, incurring excessive debt, or burning people out. Forge paths of innovation and improvement that others have overlooked or rejected. Monitor progress by using metrics and indicators in a mindful and meaningful way. Build teams that naturally pull people into change rather than pushing them through it. Featuring case studies of organizations as diverse as Shoebuy.com, Fiat, Dogfish Head Craft Brewery, Marks & Spencer, Cricket Australia, Burnley Football Club, and the Vancouver Giants, as well as world-leading educational systems, Uplifting Leadership provides tools for leaders to incorporate these performance-driving strategies into their own. 1.

Is success simply a matter of money and talent? Or is there another reason why some people and organizations always land on their feet, while others, equally talented, stumble again and again? There´s a fundamental principle at work, the vital but previously unexamined factor called confidence, that permits unexpected people to achieve high levels of performance through routines that activate talent. Confidence explains: Why the University of Connecticut women´s basketball team continues its winning ways even though recent teams lack the talent of their predecessors Why some companies are always positively perceived by employees, customers, Wall Street analysts, and the media while others are under a perpetual cloud How a company like Gillette or a team like the Chicago Cubs ends a losing streak and breaks out of a circle of doom The lessons a politician such as Nelson Mandela, who resisted the temptation to take revenge after being released from prison and assuming power, offers for leaders in both advanced democracies and trouble spots like the Middle East Confidence is based on an extraordinary investigation of success and failure in companies such as Continental Airlines, Seagate, and Verizon and sports teams such as the University of North Carolina women´s soccer team, New England Patriots, and Philadelphia Eagles, as well as schools, health care, and politics. Packed with brilliant, practical ideas such as ´´powerlessness corrupts´´ and the ´´timidity of mediocrity´´, Confidence provides fresh thinking for perpetuating winning streaks and ending losing streaks in all facets of life, from the factors that can make or break corporations and governments to the keys for successful relationships in the workplace or at home. 1.
