Stranded in the frozen Antarctic sea for nearly two years, Sir Ernest Shackleton and his team of 27 polar explorers endured extreme temperatures, hazardous ice, dwindling food, and complete isolation. Despite these seemingly insurmountable obstacles, the group remained cohesive, congenial, and mercifully alive-a fact that speaks not just to luck but to an unparalleled feat of leadership. Drawing on this amazing story, "Leading at The Edge" demonstrates the importance of a strong leader in times of adversity, uncertainty, and change. The book reveals 10 timeless leadership lessons that show readers how to: instill optimism while staying grounded in reality; have the courage to step up to risks worth taking; consistently reinforce the team message; set a personal example; find something to celebrate and something to laugh about; and, never give up. Part adventure tale, part leadership guide, the second edition features additional lessons, new case studies of the strategies in action, tools to uncover and resolve conflicts, and expanded resources. An updated epilogue compares the leadership styles of the famous polar explorers Shackleton, Amundsen, and Scott. Today's leaders have much to learn from this gripping account of survival against all odds. "Leading at The Edge" will help them bring order to chaos-and achieve success in the face of adversity

Factors Affecting the Development and Delivery of Consultation and Education Services in Community Mental Health Centers by Richard F Ketterer( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper addresses the current need for new, more effective ways of delivering mental health services. It recognizes the need for closer ties between mental health professionals and community groups, which has been met in the past by consultation and education (C and E) groups. But these groups have been hampered by complex social and organizational factors. This paper attempts to identify these obstacles and to examine their implications for the development and delivery of C and E services. It draws on relevant mental health literature, federal documents, and findings from an in-progress study of consultation and education units in four comprehensive community mental health centers (CMHC). Aimed at developing descriptive knowledge about C and E programs, it includes a review of archival records; field observations; and in-depth interviews with CMHC directors and program coordinators, C and E staff, and a purposive sample of direct service workers.
