Von George P. Baker, Dekan an der Harvard Graduate School of Business Administration Dieses Buch bringt eine psychologische Untersuchung von Führung und von den speziellen Froblemen, denen sich Men schen gegenübers ehen, die Autorität in Organisationen ver körpern. Bei der Vorstellung dieses Werkes sind einige Hin weise auf den Verfasser von besonderem Interesse. Frofessor Zaleznik, der bereits seit 1954 Mitglied der Fa kultät der Harvard Graduate School of Business Administra tion ist, hat sich auf die Untersuchung des menschlichen Verhaltens in Or ganisationen spez ialis iert. Seine Fors chung, seine Schriften und seine Lehre auf diesem Gebiet haben sich auf die Untersuchung konzentriert, wie Menschen die durch komplexe Organisationen geschaffenen Möglichkeiten und Beschränkungen bewältigen. Er hat deutlich den Schwer punkt darauf gelegt, was der einzelne tun kann, um das Be rufs- und Frivatleben für sich effektvoller zu gestalten. Er sieht den einzelnen nicht als Spielball unpersönlicher Kräfte großer Organisationen, sondern ist an der Untersuchung menschlicher und persönlicher Organisationen interessiert, wie sie sich aus aktiven und verantwortungsbewußten Men schen zusammensetzen, Menschen, die in der Lage sind, ihr eigenes Schicksal zu lenken. Die von ihm in diesem Buch vertretene Meinung beruht, ob wohl sie mit humanistischen und ethischen Prinzipien ver bunden ist, auf wissenschaftlichen psychologischen Grund lagen. Die besondere, von ihm angewandte Psychologie ist in den klinischen und theoretischen Konzepten der Fsycho- analyse verwurzelt, wie sie von Sigmund Freud und seinen Schülern entwickelt wurde

Hedgehogs and foxes : character, leadership, and command in organizations by Abraham Zaleznik( Book )

16 editions published in 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling look at charismatic leaders and their leadership styles. Abraham Zaleznik asserts that leaders are either hedgehogs, who view leadership as a single-minded track driven by unwavering rules, or foxes, who assess and re-evaluate their goals and strategies based on ever-changing factors in business, politics, and culture." "The story in back of a leader's life of thought: and action is always a mixed bag. If the proper study of mankind is man, the enduring lessons of leadership will emerge from the study of lives, of men and women who with an often tenuous grasp of command and less than perfect clarity in inner visions, dependent on the strength and the mobility of their character, search for the courage to lead. Leaders present their life stories as a text, calling upon readers to engage in vertical thinking as a way of identifying with that text." "This book contains five parts. Each part consists of two narrative chapters on the life and work of individuals caught up in the trappings of power and struggling to make it meaningful in their lives and the lives of others who become part of their story. The third chapter in each part is thematic using the stories to sharpen the portrayals of character in action in positions of responsibility."--Jacket

"In this clear and insightful book, Abraham Zaleznik shows executives how to think like a psychiatrist in motivating and managing people."--Peter Cappelli, George W. Taylor Professor Management or Director of the Center for Human Resources "In the conversational tone for which he is famous, Abe Zaleznik connects the dots between psychoanalysis and leadership to help answer questions every executive is asking: why do people do what they do? Why do I do what I do? How can I make better decisions? This is simply a must-read book."--Sydney Finkelstein, Professor at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth the author of Think Again: Why Good Leaders Make Bad Decisions and Why Smart Executives Fail "In the current crisis, which is at its core not merely financial but a crisis of leadership, it behooves executives to deepen their own self-knowledge and their understanding of their people's blind-spots. Abraham Zaleznik provides a thorough, systematic, and accessible yet not simplistic introduction to the field of psychoanalysis for busy managers. A valiant effort to bridge psychodynamics and leadership." - Dr. Thomas D. Zweifel, CEO, Swiss Consulting Group, and author of The Rabbi and the CEO: The Ten Commandments for 21st-Century Leaders "Zaleznik's revised edition deftly applies psychoanalytic theory to the modern business world. His subtle observations and creative insights are incisive and thought-provoking. Readers will learn a great deal from this book." - George R. Goethals - E. Claiborne Robins Distinguished Chair and Professor of Leadership Studies at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond
