Women world leaders : fifteen great politicians tell their stories by Laura A Liswood( Book )

12 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Living in the world today there are more than one dozen women who are, or have been, leaders of their country. Laura Liswood, in an unprecedented journey which took her into corridors of power around the world, has conducted one-to-one interviews with each of these fifteen women. Using this unique material, Liswood analyses the obstacles these politicians have faced in attaining high office, examines whether, once in power, they have been able to further the cause of women in their countries, and assesses the differences between male and female leaders. Never before has there been such a complete document of women as world leaders. Each politician has a riveting - and sometimes surprising - story of her own; but together, with all their cultural diversities, successes and failures, dramas and tragedies, they form a stunning collection
The loudest duck : moving beyond diversity while embracing differences to achieve success at work by Laura A Liswood( Book )

14 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A business fable that explains why organizations need to move beyond the old-style diversity efforts to actually benefit from difference In today's modern workplaces with their many different types of people, cultural and personal differences can be challenges-whether you're a team-member or a business leader. Different cultures teach different values and we carry those values throughout adulthood and into the office environment. Understanding the cultural and gender viewpoints of our colleagues is a major key to healthy, conflict-free work environments. This fable takes its name from a Chinese children's parable about how "the loudest duck gets shot." It's a parable that contrasts with the American idiom "the squeaky wheel gets the grease." Comparing the two, it's clear that different cultures teach different views, and those views often translate into distinct ways of doing business. In today's global business world, understanding each other-where we come from and what we're taught-is more important than ever. A business fable that points out how the old way of approaching diversity will never work, showing us how to understand and navigate the cultural and gender differences that cause conflict in the office Perfect for managers and executives faced with leadership challenges in a heterogeneous workforce and who want to make sure their organization is a true meritocracy and a level playing field for everyone Ideal for anyone, at any level, who wants more tools in their toolbox to get ahead in business in a global business culture Doing business today takes understanding and cultural intelligence. The Loudest Duck uses an entertaining story to share important lessons about why diversity efforts are bound to fail unless we really understand how we unconsciously respond to difference and how to move to beyond it"--Provided by publisher
