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

16 editions published between 1974 and 1977 in English and held by 873 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)

The executive's compass : business and the good society by James O'Toole( Book )

16 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American society has become increasingly polarized by single- and special-interest groups: the Greens, who demand environmental purity; admirers of Japan who want a national industrial policy; supply-side economists who want government to all but disappear. This collision of values has turned America into a battleground of either/or tradeoffs: the community vs. the individual, the environment vs. jobs, the rights of each ethnic group vs. the needs of the nation for unity. Whose values should prevail? Those of Libertarians? Communitarians? Egalitarians? Corporatists? The nation's leadership role in the post-communist world will be largely determined by how such conflicts are resolved

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 457 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
