Working fathers : new strategies for balancing work and family by James A Levine( Book )

16 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 744 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the steady rise in the number of women joining the workforce, fathers are taking on more responsibility for the nurturing of their children, partly by necessity but often by choice, while still retaining their "breadwinner" pressures. This book is intended to help men reconcile the demands of work and family. It is based on a decade of research on men's changing dynamics around work and family, conducted by The Fatherhood Project at the Families and Work Institute (fwi). Data include company case studies and reports from focus groups, interviews with over 200 working fathers in diverse occupations across industries, and an analysis of FWI's National Study of the Changing Workforce, a nationally representative survey of over 3,000 members of the U.S. labor force. Chapters are: (1) "Daddy Stress: The Invisible Dilemma"; (2) "Daddy Success: The Payoff for Fathers, Mothers, Companies, and Kids"; (3) "Creating the Father-Friendly Workplace"; (4) "Breaking the [Corporate] Culture Collusion"; (5) "Managing Paternity Leave: a Smart Investment"; (6) "Connecting with Your Family"; (7) "Staying Connected When You're Traveling"; (8) "Connecting through School, Day Care, and Other 'Significant Others'"; and the conclusion, "Working Fathers: Balancing the New Work-Family Equation."

Science, technology, and society : new perspectives and directions( )

7 editions published in 2019 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book gathers inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary perspectives on the effects that today's advances in science and technology have on issues ranging from government policy-making to how we see the differences between men and women. The chapters investigate how invention and innovation really take place, how science differs from competing forms of knowledge, and how science and technology could contribute more to the greater good of humanity. For instance, should there be legal restrictions on 'immoral inventions'? A key theme that runs throughout the book concerns who is taken into account at each stage and who is affected. The amount of influence users have on technology development and how non-users are factored in are evaluated as the impact of scientific and technological progression on society is investigated, including politics, economy, family life, and ethics
Us + them : tapping the positive power of difference by Todd L Pittinsky( )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pittinsky tackles the all-too-pervasive (not to mention costly and destructive) "us versus them" mindset. By concentrating on the best of human nature and viewing differences as opportunities rather than stumbling blocks, Pittinsky shows the transformative effect that his diversity paradigm can have on individuals, corporations, and even nations

Leaders who lust : power, money, sex, success, legitimacy, legacy by Barbara Kellerman( Book )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a deliberate departure from the prevailing trend. It deals with leaders not as figments of our imaginations, as incarnations of our idealizations, but as they are in the real world. Specifically, this book is an examination and evaluation of leaders driven beyond apparent reason, and who therefore, in some cases for better and in others for worse, stand out"--

Measuring the efficacy of leaders to assess information and make decisions in a crisis : the C-LEAD scale by Constance Noonan Hadley( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Effective leadership is needed in times of public health and safety crisis, yet the empirical research on what it means to be an effective crisis leader is scarce. We present a new measure, the Crisis Leader Efficacy in Assessing and Deciding (C-LEAD) scale, to further research on this important topic. C-LEAD captures the self-efficacy of an individual to perform two critical crisis leader behaviors, assessing information and making decisions, in the face of the ambiguity, high stakes, and urgency present in crises. In addition to the psychometric properties of the C-LEAD scale, we demonstrate evidence of its factor structure and discriminant validity from two related constructs -- general leader efficacy and procedural crisis preparation. In particular, we found that C-LEAD more accurately predicts decision-making difficulty in a crisis context than general leadership efficacy. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed
Allophilia and intergroup leadership by Todd L Pittinsky( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most pressing concerns confronting leaders is intergroup conflict, often inspired or facilitated by prejudice. Not only might leaders inherit conflicts between political, religious, or organizational groups, but they may unwittingly contribute to them. Foundations of strong intragroup leadership, such as fostering strong group identification and cohesion, are often stepping stones to intergroup conflict. I refer to this as the "ingroup/outgroup leadership tradeoff." While the reduction of prejudice is essential to the reduction of intergroup conflict, I argue that the necessary approach is not to replace prejudice with the neutral stance of tolerance. Something critical lies beyond the reduction of prejudice and the promotion of tolerance: positive intergroup attitudes, allophilia. While the academic and applied literature on intergroup relations is well supplied with terms for negative intergroup attitudes (e.g., xenophobia, sexism, racism, anti-Americanism, classism, ageism, homophobia), there are surprisingly few terms for positive intergroup attitudes. Allophilia is a term I coin, derived from the Greek words meaning "liking, or love, of the other." The concept of allophilia provides a powerful anchor for a new framework for understanding intergroup leadership. To initiate the development of a framework of allophilia and leadership, I address three interrelated questions in this article: (1) What is allophilia in the context of intergroup relations? (2) What role does -- and might -- allophilia play in intergroup leadership? and (3) What are the keys to further developing allophilia as a framework for intergroup leadership theory and practice? The framework prompts leaders to push their societies and the world community away from the natural direction in which individuals and social system might otherwise unfold, leading them instead on a trajectory of positive intergroup relations

Glancing back : recalling organizational commitment in a growing organization by Todd L Pittinsky( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The current study adopts an innovative approach to the study of time and organizational commitment, examines commitment as a process that unfolds and changes over time, and illuminates how different components of organizational commitment operate both similarly and distinctly. Past research has found that, in downsizing organization, employees will recall having experienced greater organizational commitment in the past than they had actually reported experiencing at the time. In contrast, we examine employee recall of past organizational commitment in a growing organization. Further, we consider employee recall for thee specific components of organizational commitment: affective, normative, and continuance. A randomly selected cohort of employees at a growing technology company reported their organizational commitment at Time 1. Then at Time 2, 36 months later, they recalled their past organizational commitment. Consistent with study hypotheses, at Time 2, employees recalled having had significantly lower overall organizational commitment than they reported at Time 1. Specifically, employees recalled significantly lower overall, affective, and normative organizational commitment. In contrast and consistent with research findings in social cognition, participants accurately recalled their level of continuance commitment. Analyses of other variables supported the findings by indicating that continuance commitment was not the only aspect of work that could be accurately recalled, and by showing that other potential moderators, including participant age, sex, education, commitment to work and family life, and ability to balance commitments to work and family life, were not responsible for the results. Taken together, the robust findings suggest (1) that the growth trajectory of an organization (i.e., growing versus downsizing) may be a key moderator of employee recall of past organizational commitment and (2) recall of continuance commitment may act independently of recall of affective and normative commitment. Future directions and implications of the findings for organizational commitment theory and organizational attachment research more generally are discussed
