Leading self-directed work teams : a guide to developing new team leadership skills by Kimball Fisher( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Across the country, highly competitive, self-directed work teams (SDWTs) are chalking up astonishing productivity gains. These work teams are replacing entrenched, autocratic, boss-driven organizations whose management styles are obsolete. Driving these remarkable workplace success stories is a new breed of supervisor who empowers teams through example and commitment, instead of by demanding obedience and control." "Drawing upon the actual experiences of hundreds of team leaders in such self-directed workplaces as Kodak, Apple, Corning, Shell, and many others, Leading Self-Directed Work Teams reveals how supervisors in any company - large or small - an take advantage of the career-boosting leadership skills that make and keep major corporations competitive." "This timely book takes a refreshingly candid look at the challenges, intricacies, and rewards of changing from a traditional supervisor to a confident SDWT leader. It focuses on hundreds of practical, time-tested techniques for developing the business, interpersonal, and technical capabilities of any team. And it explains step-by-step how you can master such crucial team leadership skills as coaching, business analysis, barrier busting, facilitating groups, customer advocacy, accessing information, and much more. Along the way, the author profiles the most innovative team leader practices learned from Kodak's 13 Room and Procter & Gamble experiments, demonstrating the remarkable benefits of managing by principle rather than by policy, and setting boundaries that change as the team matures." "Leading Self-Directed Work Teams guides you confidently through each of the five evolutionary phases most SDWTs experience during their maturation, detailing the specific skills and behaviors required to meet this sequence of challenges. For exceptional utility, it provides a weekly activity guide to help team leaders remember critical activities, supplies a special chapter focusing on "3 days in the life of a team leader," and shows how to quickly test and interpret your thoughts and behaviors about team leadership." "Whether you're a supervisor or CEO - whether your team is a small group of office workers or a Fortune 100 company - discover how to excite, energize, and inspire team members by developing the vision and guiding principles for effective team leadership; fostering coordination, clarity, and consistency without restricting autonomy and creativity; giving and obtaining feedback in a constructive, nondefensive manner; ending temper flare-ups, grievances, and eroding trust among team members; dealing with team members, peers, and senior managers resistant to the new work paradigm; deciding when appropriate management intervention is not only acceptable, but required; and making decisions in real time without traditional wasted periods." "In today's rapidly changing marketplace, the competitive edge belongs to those organizations that capitalize on the full potential of their human and technical resources. Leading Self-Directed Work Teams gives you the skills, insights, and confidence to adapt to today's indispensable leader-facilitator role and guide newly empowered, participative teams to their full potential."--Jacket
The distributed mind : achieving high performance through the collective intelligence of knowledge work teams by Kimball Fisher( Book )

13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the first time in history, more employees work with their minds than with their muscles. Their value lies in their mental abilities and their knowledge. Collectively, they are the "mind" of the company - a mind spread across many individual brains. The authors of this book call it "the distributed mind."" "The distributed mind is a powerful force, for if two heads are better than one, imagine how much better 20 heads are - if it is possible to manage them all! That's the fascinating subject of The Distributed Mind: How progressive companies are creating teams of "knowledge workers" and coordinating their individual efforts into a web of high performance." "Dozens of case studies and examples show that "knowledge workers" aren't just engineers, lawyers, and programmers - they are the predominant workers in virtually every industry, at all levels and in all functions. They represent a fundamental change in the nature of organizations and the way work gets done. The Distributed Mind not only reveals this new world of work, it helps you make sense of it - and make the most of it."--Jacket

The distance manager : a hands-on guide to managing off-site employees and virtual teams by Kimball Fisher( Book )

17 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book shows you how to do it well. You'll learn from the experiences of a large cross-section of managers who have been in the front lines of this new managerial paradigm. Their job descriptions vary widely: they are sales managers, project team leaders, field-technician managers, executives of global businesses. They work for a broad range of companies, including Xerox, Hewlett-Packard, Weyerhaeuser, ARCO Exploration and Production, Sun Microsystems, Dell Computers and Procter & Gamble. But all have had to learn to handle the fundamental problem that every distance manager faces: making sure you are getting peak performance from employees you rarely see face-to-face." "You'll also learn to master the technology that distance managers depend on: videoconferencing, Web conferencing, the daily flood of email, and more. Sooner or later this new leadership challenge will affect just about every manager in the country."--Jacket

Parenting a violent child : steps to taking back control and creating a happier home by Islay Downey( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A new wave of abuse is happening behind the doors of family homes but it's one that many are too ashamed to discuss. Domestic violence used to mean an angry man beating a helpless female partner and child. But last year over 12,000 parents called ParentLine to report violent children landing blows, bites and punches on them when they didn't get their own way. Islay Downey, featured practitioner on Channel 5's My Violent Child, and Kim Furnish have written the first book on this issue specifically for parents. The book offers warm and sympathetic step-by-step advice to look at the underlying causes of violent children, and encourages the parent to examine their own lives to prepare strategies for effective change. Includes fictionalised case studies based on real families the authors have worked with
