Work and the quality of life; resource papers for Work in America by James O'Toole( Book )

17 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sequel to Work in America, the volume of resource papers provides additional data on issues concerning the relationships of work to health, education, and welfare. The report is a planning document which focuses on how the institution of work can be changed to improve the quality of life, to contribute to a more just society, and to strengthen public and private institutions. It is a holistic and humanistic approach which goes beyond job satisfaction. Sixteen leading researchers contribute their findings and perceptions to six main sections dealing with dissatisfaction in the work force, the problems of various demographic groups of workers, the relation between work and health, job redesign and enrichment, the relationship between education and work, and Federal strategies relating to work and welfare. Evidence of increasing numbers of American workers of diverse backgrounds becoming dissatisfied with the quality of their working lives points to the need for more options in job design, more flexible working arrangements, and freer access to and information about jobs. More understanding is needed of the relationship between work and education, without contorting the function of education so that it serves only marketing ends. (Ea)

Leadership A to Z : a guide for the appropriately ambitious by James O'Toole( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Author James O'Toole invests each topic with humor and insight. His approach is light-hearted, his style wonderfully readable. But the lessons he delivers cut to the quick of effective leadership. A master of leadership education and coaching for nearly thirty years, O'Toole's advice stems from his own professional experiences, the experiences of the many outstanding leaders he has known, and research conducted by the world's top business scholars." "Primer, reference, and handbook all in one, Leadership A to Z is the ideal guide for individuals looking to quickly build or improve their leadership skills and for organizations looking to increase leadership capacity throughout their ranks. Think of it as a leadership coach in book form whose only learning prerequisite, as author O'Toole points out, is a disposition toward "appropriate" ambition. Book jacket."--Jacket

Good business : exercising effective and ethical leadership by James O'Toole( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This illuminating and practical collection of essays addresses the increasingly important topics of corporate ethics, social responsibility, and sustainability in the context of effective global business strategies. Instead of condemning business, or exhorting corporate leaders to do good, the authors deal with the hot button issues of our time in a cool and rational manner, seeing them as opportunities rather than as problems. As the authors illustrate, there is no necessary trade-off between business leaders doing the right thing, on one hand, and the profitable thing, on the other. They demonstrate that ethics is not peripheral, or in addition to, the central concerns of business. To the contrary, ethics and good citizenship are at the heart of all good business strategies, decisions, and organizational cultures. These essays offer useful examples of how executives can create strategies and cultures that are, both and at the same time, ethical and effective--the essence of GOOD BUSINESS." -- Cubierta

Creating the good life : applying Aristotle's wisdom to find meaning and happiness by James O'Toole( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professionals and business people in midlife are increasingly asking themselves "What's next?" in their careers and personal lives. This book draws on the wisdom of the ages to help contemporary men and women plan for satisfying, useful, moral, and meaningful second halves of their lives. For centuries, the brightest people in Western societies have looked to Aristotle for guidance on how to lead a good life and how to create a good society. Now James O'Toole--the Mortimer J. Adler Senior Fellow of the Aspen Institute--translates that classical philosophical framework into practical, comprehensible terms to help professionals and business people apply it to their own lives and work. His book helps thoughtful readers address some of the profound questions they are currently struggling with in planning their futures: How do I find meaning and satisfaction? How much money do I need in order to be happy? What is the right balance between work, family, and leisure? What are my responsibilities to my community? How can I create a good society in my own company? Bridging philosophy and self-help, O'Toole's book shows how happiness ultimately is attainable no matter one's level of income, if one uses Aristotle's practical exercises to ask the right questions and to discipline oneself to pursue things that are "good for us."
Tenure, three views by James O'Toole( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The views of three educators on the subject of tenure are presented. In light of the widespread concern over an increasingly over-extended system of colleges and universities during a period of retrenchment, the issue of tenure provides fuel for much debate. Arguments for and against tenure are presented in an effort to better serve the interests of academic quality. In "a Conscientious Objection," James O'Toole views tenure as a self-defeating institution that distorts the purposes and processes of the academic system. He views tenure as harmful to the people who depend on it since it discourages growth, is inimical to academic freedom, discourages radical innovation and risk-taking, limits mobility, and may work to the advantage of administrators in bargaining with professors. William W. Van Alstyne ("a Conscientious Objective") disagrees with O'Toole and suggests that tenure must be understood as a system of reliable, procedural requirements insuring protection against summary, unilateral, unexplained, and unreviewable nonrenewal of a faculty contract. In the final article, "Tenure and the Academic Future," Richard Chait discusses the future of tenure and how it can be most effectively administered. Chait suggests that the proliferation of tenure throughout most major colleges and universities will insure its survival. Although it has been modified and alternatives suggested (unions and contracts), tenure is viewed as an academic tradition that will be difficult to eliminate. (Sf)
