"Peter Block, the author of the classic Flawless Consulting, is a true visionary. And here he turns his sights on management.

Offers practical advice to help your managers: * Empower themselves to help shape the organization * Develop positive political skills in their dealings with all levels of employees * Take responsibility for their own actions * Negotiate with their allies and adversaries * Face failure courageously ... and much more!

And they'll be uncovering a road map that leads to enhanced effectiveness and job satisfaction"--
Community : the structure of belonging by Peter Block( )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2018 in English and held by 2,249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Most of our communities are fragmented and at odds within themselves. Businesses, social services, education, and health care each live within their own worlds. The same is true of individual citizens, who long for connection but end up marginalized, their gifts overlooked, their potential contributions lost. What keeps this from changing is that we are trapped in an old and tired conversation about who we are. If this narrative does not shift, we will never truly create a common future and work toward it together.' 'What Peter Block provides in this new book is an exploration of the exact way community can emerge from fragmentation. How is community built? How does the transformation occur? What fundamental shifts are involved? What can individuals and formal leaders do to create a place they want to inhabit? We know what healthy communities look like-there are many success stories out there. The challenge is how to create one in our own place'"--
The abundant community : awakening the power of families and neighborhoods by John McKnight( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing movement of people with a different vision for their local communities. They know that real satisfaction and the good life are not provided by organizations, institutions, or systems. No number of great CEO's, central offices, or long range plans produce what a community can produce. People are discovering a new possibility for their lives. They have a calling. They are called. And together they call upon themselves. This possibility is idealistic, and yet it is an ideal within our grasp. It is a possibility that is both idealistic and realistic. Our culture leads us to believe that a satisfying life can be purchased. It tells us that in the place where we live, we don't have the resources to create a good life. This book reminds us that a neighborhood that can raise a child, provide security, sustain our health, secure our income, and care for our vulnerable people is within the power of our community. This book gives voice to our ideal of a beloved community. It reminds us of our power to create a hope-filled life. It assures us that when we join together with our neighbors we are the architects of the future where we want to live

An other kingdom : departing the consumer culture by Peter Block( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Other Kingdom is about reframing how society views its communal identity. The book proposes to identify what has been considered sacred language and use it as an opening into the experience of community and the commons. It lays out a faith narrative without the negative traces of sectarianism. Readers are dared to imagine the human benefit of an alternative to the market ideology that defines our culture, called the Neighborly Covenant because it enlivens and humanizes the social order. The Other Kingdom proposes language for alternative ways to a covenantal culture, one that is active beyond election years and has different substance in defining society's communal identity"--
Managing in the media by Peter Block( Book )

17 editions published between 2000 and 2013 in English and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Managing in the Media has been devised for a broad audience. It is based upon the perceived need for a text that amalgamates cultural theories, film and television analysis, management theories and media production practice into one volume. There are many books on film and cultural studies. Similarly, there are copious numbers of texts written on management. To date little has been written that analyses the management of the audiovisual industry set against the backdrop of the cultural and economic environment within which the media manager operates.Managing in the Media is divided into three sections that take the reader from the global to the specific, from the strategic to the tactical. Each chapter discusses specific topics that can be read in isolation yet contribute to the theme within each part. Taken as a whole, the book provides the potential professional media manager and current practising media manager with a framework of issues that will give them an awareness of the range of knowledge needed by the successful media manager. This book does not try to be a manual to success. The media industry is awash with successful individuals none of whom needed textbooks to set them on their chosen career paths. Yet these exceptional people prove the rule; that in the main, most media practitioners would benefit from some additional support and guidance. The aim of this book is to present to them some of the management issues that have, or will have, an impact upon their working careers. The accompanying website www.mediaops.net (which can also be accessed via www.focalpress.com) features:- Tutor notes and reader activities- Updated list of further reading- Additional support material such as production templates - Interviews with the authors - A discussion forum- Industry and education links- Media News

The answer to how is yes : stop looking for help in all the wrong places by Peter Block( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Block offers a new way of thinking about our actions that helps free us from being controlled by the bombardment of messages about how we should live and act. He shows how our obsession with tools and techniques actually prevents us from doing things we believe in, and he identifies what is required of us to not only know what matters but to act on that knowledge. He reframes leadership as the role of social architect where convening, engaging and defining the question replace vision, charisma, and driving change. ... Block inspires us to say 'yes' to our ideals and what we know to be true."--Jacket
