The high-value manager : developing the core competencies your organization demands by Florence M Stone( )

12 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 2,216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The High-Value Manager gives you the broad knowledge base that will help you safeguard your job and advance your career, especially in tough times. It outlines 80 core competencies typically required for managerial success - the benchmarks that executives use most often when deciding whom to hire, promote, or fire. And it helps you determine which competencies are most important in your organization." "To help you squeeze every drop of practical guidance from this book, the authors provide a self-evaluation questionnaire that pinpoints your managerial strengths and weaknesses. It's the private, objective way to identify where improvement is needed. You'll also find a complementary series of "managerial capability" questions that can be used to gain insights from your boss, employees, peers, and customers." "This guide will prepare you to focus on 4 key management competency areas: leadership, continuous improvement, team management, and life and career planning. Specifically, The High-Value Manager will help you acquire or enhance such skills as communicating a clear vision, creating a learning environment, facilitating and coaching teams, playing politics the positive way, getting people to talk about problems, listening effectively, steering conflicts away from personalities and toward issues, focusing on customers, cultivating a power base, and increasing your visibility." "Part management workbook and part career guide, The High-Value Manager will enable you to make the crucial transition from adequacy to excellence. Like a fitness class, it is designed for active involvement. Under each core competency, you'll find clear descriptions of the managerial concept(s) involved, guidelines for mastering the skill under discussion, on-the-job examples and scenarios you can relate to, and quizzes or other self-help tools to help you grow."--BOOK JACKET

The oracle of Oracle : the story of volatile CEO Larry Ellison and the strategies behind his company's phenomenal success by Florence M Stone( )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Depending on who you're talking to, Oracle's founder and CEO Larry Ellison is an arrogant promoter who borrows heavily from the ideas of others - or a visionary leader who knows how to turn a neglected idea into a stunning market success. He's a ruthless businessman who's not above kicking a rival that's down - or a formidable competitor who simply plays by the rules of the day. He's a filthy rich playboy with an outsized fleet of cars, boats, and planes - or a shrewd marketer with a knack for generating reams of publicity." "As you might suspect, Ellison is all of these things, which is what makes him one of the most talked-about yet enigmatic executives in American business. But behind the boats and braggadocio is the fact that Ellison and his company have been phenomenally successful, with Oracle holding the spot as the second largest software company in the world (surpassed by Microsoft - much to the chagrin of Ellison, of course)." "How did Ellison do it? How did he propel this tiny start-up into an international powerhouse? Which of his myriad traits and talents have been instrumental in building Oracle, and which have threatened to sabotage that success? The Oracle of Oracle is the first book to give you a complete, unbiased picture of both the man and his company."--BOOK JACKET
