A new earth : awakening to your life's purpose by Eckhart Tolle( )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in Spanish and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: he implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity. However, there is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one. In illuminating the nature of this shift, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are--which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are.--From publisher description

Blue ocean strategy : how to create uncontested market space and make the competition irrelevant by W. Chan Kim( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a book that challenges everything you thought you knew about the requirements for strategic success, Kim and Mauborgne argue that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves spanning more than a hundred years and 30 industries, the authors argue that lasting success comes not from battling competitors, but from creating "blue oceans"--Untapped new market spaces ripe for growth. Such strategic moves--which the authors call "value innovation"--create powerful leaps in value that often render rivals obsolete for more than a decade. Blue Ocean Strategy presents a systematic approach to making the competition irrelevant.--From publisher description
Megatrends for women by Patricia Aburdene( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in Spanish and English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From "good ole boy" politics to the medical establishment, from organized religion to professional sports, the women of the 1990s are challenging and overturning the male-dominated status quo, reintegrating female values and perspectives and recasting the social, political and economic megatrends of the day. In Megatrends for Women, Patricia Aburdene and John Naisbitt, the internationally respected social forecasters who gave us the number one bestsellers Megatrends and Megatrends 2000, now outline the ways women are transforming every sector of contemporary life. Drawing on a wealth of data on social change, they offer example after example of women making a difference as CEO's, athletes and political and spiritual leaders. The women's movement has reached "critical mass" say Aburdene and Naisbitt, the point at which a trend becomes a megatrend. There may be setbacks, but women's march toward equality will henceforth become unstoppable. Chapter by chapter Megatrends for Women documents the sweeping changes women need to be aware of to be empowered now and in the future:. A record number of women candidates are seeking political office; a woman will be president of the United States by 2004;. Women-owned businesses employ as many people as all the Fortune 500 companies put together;. From homelessness to the environment, from population control to drug abuse and crime, women are asserting a leadership role in finding the solutions to the most intractable social problems;. Women dominate in six of the seven most popular fitness activities; at the 1992 Winter Olympics, women won all five of the U.S. gold medals;. Forty to fifty million women will undergo menopause in the next two decades; as activists, they will revolutionize medicine's approach to breast cancer and heart disease;. Whether theologians, nuns or New Agers, women are transforming both religion and spirituality by rejecting the notion of a male divinity and embracing the archetype of the Great Goddess;. After decades of male domination, female designers are now assuming leadership roles in the fashion business;. Women's natural leadership style in business is today's progressive management model and widely endorsed by male business gurus;. The new relationship between the United States and the former Soviet Union shifts the focus from military to domestic matters, opening the way for women to lead in the New World Order. Megatrends for Women describes the state of the art of women today and offers a prescient look at the future as women assume leadership in the 21st Century
The power of a positive No : how to say No and still get to Yes by William Ury( Book )

2 editions published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In today's world of high stress and limitless choices, the pressure to give in and say Yes grows ever greater, producing overload and overwork and eroding ethics.

This book gives you a simple three-step method for saying a Positive No. It will show you how to assert and defend your key interests; how to make your No firm and strong; how to resist the other side's aggression and manipulation; and how to do all this while still getting to Yes.--From publisher description
First, break all the rules : what the world's greatest managers do differently by Marcus Buckingham( Book )

3 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in Spanish and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Companies compete to find and keep the best employees, using pay, benefits, promotions, and training. But these well-intentioned efforts often miss the mark. The front-line manager is the key to attracting and retaining talented employees. No matter how generous its pay or how renowned its training, the company that lacks great front-line managers will suffer. The authors explain how the best managers select an employee for talent rather than for skills or experience how they set expectations for him or her -- they define the right outcomes rather than the right steps how they motivate people -- they build on each person's unique strengths rather than trying to fix his weaknesses and, finally, how great managers develop people -- they find the right fit for each person, not the next rung on the ladder. And perhaps most important, this research -- which initially generated thousands of different survey questions on the subject of employee opinion -- finally produced the twelve simple questions that work to distinguish the strongest departments of a company from all the rest. This book is the first to present this essential measuring stick and to prove the link between employee opinions and productivity, profit, customer satisfaction, and the rate of turnover

On great service : a framework for action by Leonard L Berry( Book )

2 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Improving service quality has finally become a top priority of management today, yet according to service quality expert Leonard Berry only a handful of companies have managed to determine exactly what to improve and how to improve it. For the past two years, Berry studied dozens of companies of all sizes renowned for their capacity to deliver what they promise and more. From his on-site observation of the strategies and practices of such companies as Mary Kay Cosmetics, Tattered Cover Book Store, Longo Toyota & Lexus, Lakeland Regional Medical Center, and Hard Rock Cafe, Berry has constructed a dynamic new framework for improving service. This framework provides a roadmap for implementation found nowhere else in the service quality literature. In every chapter Berry draws on his twelve years of research in service quality to explain each part of the framework in detail. He provides rich insights and inspiring examples of great service -- including numerous examples unique to this book as well as the classic success stories of USAA, Taco Bell, and many more. Berry shows that a company must (1) develop service leadership skills and values -- a concept substantially different from developing general leadership; (2) build a service quality information system; and (3) create a comprehensive service strategy based on the four principles of great service: reliability, surprise, recovery, and fairness. He demonstrates how these four principles, when adopted by the leadership and infused into the systems of a service company, are the building blocks of the framework and form the anchor for implementation. Berry shows how the "artistry" of great service can be systematically created from this foundation through a company's organizational structure, technology, and often under utilized human resources assets. He challenges service managers to set their service quality aspirations higher, and his innovative, practical ideas will help them achieve those higher standards. Linking service excellence to value creation, Berry provides solid financial reasons for the necessity of great service. Here, at last, is the book for which managers in every service industry have waited: Leonard Berry's "operating manual" for turning plans for great service into action
