Leading quietly : an unorthodox guide to doing the right thing by Joseph Badaracco( Book )

14 editions published in 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Most of us think of leaders as courageous risk takers, orchestrators of major events - in a word, heroes. Yet while such figures are inspiring and admirable, Harvard Business School Professor Joseph Badaracco argues that their larger-than-life accomplishments are simply not what makes the world work. What does, he says, is the sum of millions of small yet consequential decisions that men and women working far from the limelight make every day: how a line worker for a pharmaceutical company responds when he discovers a defect in a product's safety seal; how a manager deals with a valued employee suspected of stealing; how a trader handles a transaction error that will cost a client money." "Badaracco calls them "quiet leaders"--People who choose responsible, behind-the-scenes action over public heroism to resolve tough leadership challenges. These indidviduals don't fit the stereotype of the bold and gutsy leader, and they don't want to. What they want is to do the "right thing" for their organizations, their coworkers, and themselves - but inconspicuously and without casualties. They do so by being baldly realistic about the complexities of their own motives and those of the dilemmas they face. In today's fast and fluid business world, nothing is as it seems. And they know it." "Drawing from a four-year study of quiet leadership, Badaracco presents eight practical and counterintuitive guidelines for confronting situations in which right and wrong seem like moving targets. Grounding each strategy in an engaging story, he shows how these "non-heroes" succeed by managing their political capital, buying themselves time, bending the rules, and more."--Jacket
Defining moments : when managers must choose between right and right by Joseph Badaracco( Book )

14 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Dutch and held by 1,284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How do you lead the launch of a product you know will be extremely controversial? What should you do if a single parent on your staff is falling behind in his or her work? How should you respond if you are offered an opportunity at work solely because of your race or gender? This is a book about work choices and life choices, and the critical points - or defining moments - at which the two become one. A refreshing antidote to traditional feel-good, inspirational business ethics, it examines the right-versus-right conflicts that every business manager faces and presents an unorthodox yet practical way for you to think about and resolve them. When making hard professional decisions, managers often use personal values as a touchstone. Badaracco asserts, however, that resolving such dilemmas is not as simple as the "do the right thing" school of ethics would have you believe. Defining Moments reveals an alternative approach that will help you tackle the more complex and troubling question of what to do when doing the right thing requires doing something else wrong, or leaving another right thing undone." "Drawing on philosophy, literature, and three case studies that reveal the complexity today's managers face as their careers advance, Defining Moments provides tangible examples, actionable steps, and a flexible framework that you can use to make the choices that will shape not only your career, but your character."--Jacket
Questions of character : illuminating the heart of leadership through literature by Joseph Badaracco( Book )

8 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Finnish and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joseph Badaracco argues that literature helps leaders develop personal answers to specific questions. Serious fiction provides fresh, powerful perspectives on the fundamental dilemmas facing today's managers and executives. While reading compelling stories in which memorable protagonists grapple with questions of character, leaders can watch them worry, hope, commit, exult, regret, and reflect, while being tested, strengthened, or weakened. These experiences deepen leaders' self-knowledge, enabling them to be more effective." "Badaracco examines eight universal leadership challenges through the lenses of celebrated stories."--Jacket

The good struggle : responsible leadership in an unforgiving world by Joseph Badaracco( Book )

7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The question of how to lead successfully and responsibly is crucially important in our uncertain, high-pressure, turbulent world. In this book, the author answers this question in practical and, at times, provocative ways. Leaders today are surrounded by what he calls "the new invisible hand", powerful, pervasive markets that touch and shape almost everything. As a result, understanding the inevitability and importance of struggle is critical. And leaders must go a step further to create what the author calls "the good struggle" in order to meet their goals at work, as well as their goals in life. This book helps you meet the relentless challenges of being a leader today by identifying the most important questions you should be asking yourself. New answers to these questions can be found by watching leaders in dynamic settings, especially entrepreneurs. The conditions entrepreneurs have always faced, intense competition, scarce resources, and unforgiving markets, are true now for the rest of us, and they offer valuable, practical lessons about struggling and succeeding in volatile and uncertain environments. If "the joy of life is in the struggle," as one thoughtful entrepreneur put it, this book can help you find meaning in your work, stay focused on what matters despite the turbulence around you, and keep you on the path to leading successfully and responsibly

Managing in the gray : five timeless questions for resolving your hardest problems at work by Joseph Badaracco( Book )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It's a manager's job to make the tough calls, but the hardest part of being a manager is resolving those "gray areas"--situations where analysis of the numbers, facts, and data fails to provide a clear answer. These gray areas test not only a manager's skills, but their humanity. You have to choose, commit, and act, and to live with the consequences. Harder still, you have to be able to explain yourself and your decisions to others. How do you get it right, both as a manager and as a human being? Bestselling author Joseph Badaracco presents a five-question framework that helps people balance the analytical side of being a manager with the human side and find an answer when analysis falls short: (1) What are the net, net consequences? (2) What are my core obligations? (3) What will work in the world as it is? (4) What do we really stand for? and (5) What is my best judgment and best self? Managing in the Gray reflects and distills the timeless wisdom of many of the most powerful, penetrating, and noble minds throughout history--philosophers ranging from Aristotle to Nietzsche, religious leaders like Confucius and Jesus, political thinkers like Thomas Jefferson, even poets and artists--and is a powerful guide to managers for resolving their toughest problems at work, the ones that keep them up at night.--
