Becoming a more versatile learner by Maxine A Dalton( )

11 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 1,474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost all managers regard job experiences and the lessons they provide essential for their development as leaders. But not all of those managers are successful at learning those lessons. That difficulty is often related to a manager 's relying too much on one preferred learning tactic-a tactic that might not be suited for gleaning the lessons of a particular job experience. By increasing the number of learning tactics and becoming a more versatile learner, managers can better position themselves to take advantage of the lessons that job experiences offer and contribute to their leadership dev

Learning from life : turning life's lessons into leadership experience by Marian N Ruderman( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2007 in English and held by 1,456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ordinary nonwork activities like fundraising, coaching, and community advocacy can serve as sources of learning for managers in such areas as interpersonal skills, handling multiple tasks, using relevant background information, and leadership practice. Private life encourages leadership development by offering managers experience developing their psychological strength, drawing on support from family and friends, and expanding motivation and opportunities to learn. Work experiences can contribute to personal development and the ability to handle situations away from work, including developing technical skills, strengthening interpersonal and supervisory skills, and enhancing confidence performing managerial roles. Identifying one's developmental needs, and both the work and nonwork sources that support achieving them, is the key to integrating one's experiences, providing skill training, leadership practice, and emotional support. Integrating work and nonwork experiences gives leaders opportunities to act as role models. While introducing personal experiences into work settings can feel risky, doing so brings honesty and humanity to organizations and helps others realize their potential. Developmental progress is enhanced when leaders view the divide between personal life and professional work as a channel and not as a conflict. Effective use of this channel makes an individual a better manager on the job, a community leader, a source of support in and out of the organization, and a person capable of adapting and accepting challenges.

Succession planning and management : a guide to organizational systems and practices by David Berke( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of succession-related practices is to ensure that there are ready replacements for key positions in an organization so that turnover will not negatively affect the organization's performance. CCL first published an annotated bibliography on succession planning in 1995. That bibliography focused primarily on the link between succession and management development. This bibliography has a broader scope; it is an update and expansion, commensurate with the maturation of this area of practice. In addition to linkages between succession and development, we also consider representative literature on CEO succession, high potentials, and succession systems and architecture. It is hoped that those who use this bibliography will find resources that help them in conceptualizing, planning, and implementing effective succession systems in their organizations
Preparing for development : making the most of formal leadership programs by Jennifer Martineau( )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 1,443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet describes how managers and their organizations can benefit by preparing for formal developmental experiences. Such preparation includes clarifying expectations, understanding and increasing motivation for attending, and making sure that the work environment supports the changes in both behavior and perspective that lead to more effective leadership. Managers can prepare by knowing what to expect from an open-enrollment program--those designed without a specific organization in mind--or from a customized program, which might focus on current challenges to an organization. It also helps to know how the program is structured. For example, are the classes in a classroom or are they in the woods? Will the evenings be free or will there be homework? Administrators should also reflect on what their personal expectations are for the program, particularly as these expectations will affect their job performance. Once the expectations are clarified, then it should be easier to develop the motivation that will be needed to make the most of the development program. Managers must also prepare their workplace by arranging to have their work covered, by sharing their goals with peers and managers, by assessing and taking care of roadblocks, and by integrating the lessons learned into leadership behavior.

Managing conflict with direct reports by Barbara Popejoy( )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and held by 1,423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conflict with direct reports is one of the most difficult challenges facing managers today. But it's a challenge that successful leaders must learn to address. Managers who develop an understanding of difference without judging and are willing to see more than one perspective or solution are in a good position to manage such conflict. They are better prepared to understand emotions that can trigger conflict, to clarify performance expectations, and to provide ongoing feedback for the support and development of their direct reports."--Publisher's description

Developing cultural adaptability : how to work across differences by Jennifer J Deal( )

4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Being able to communicate effectively across cultural differences, understanding how to negotiate complex social situations, and being familiar with the customs and norms of many cultures are important skills in organizations today. Perhaps even more important than possessing those essential pieces of cultural knowledge is the skill of cultural adaptability - the willingness and ability to recognize, understand and work effectively across cultural differences. Proficiency in this area helps managers to build the relationships needed to achieve results in today's global organizations, especially when those relationships are forged across borders and cultures

The human side of knowledge management : an annotated bibliography by Pamela S Mayer( )

10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This annotated bibliography lists books and articles that have direct application to managing the human side of knowledge acquisition, transfer, and application. What is meant by the human dimension of knowledge is how motivation and learning affect the acquisition and transfer of knowledge and how group dynamics mediate the role of knowledge in an organization. Thus, the texts cited in this bibliography focus on building knowledge-management (KM) cultures that affect organizational productivity and success. The report is divided into four sections. Section one contains annotations of 60 works that represent current thinking on the emerging field of KM. The next three sections organize information into those subject areas most frequently addressed by people responsible for organizational transformation efforts. Section two, "What is Knowledge Management?" sums up varying working understandings of KM and shows how KM differs from purely technology-driven data management. This section addresses the differences between explicit and tacit knowledge and their derivations and also gives examples of KM efforts in contemporary organizations. Section three explores the frameworks that apply to culture building, and section four identifies projects and tools that can enhance success. An appendix outlines additional resources, with a focus on the World Wide Web. (Contains three indices.) (RJM)
