Helping : how to offer, give, and receive help by Edgar H Schein( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 2,279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Helping is a fundamental human activity, but it can also be a frustrating one. All too often, to our bewilderment, our sincere offers of help are resented, resisted, or refused - and we often react the same way when people try to help us. Why is it so difficult to provide or accept help? How can we make the whole process easier?" "In this seminal book on the topic, corporate culture and organizational development guru Ed Schein analyzes the social and psychological dynamics common to all types of helping relationships, explains why help is often not helpful, and shows what any would be helpers must do to ensure that their assistance is both welcomed and genuinely useful." "The moment of asking for and offering help is a delicate and complex one, fraught with inequities and ambiguities. Schein helps us navigate that moment so we avoid potential pitfalls, mitigate power imbalances, and establish a solid foundation of trust. He identifies three roles a helper can play, explaining which one is nearly always the best starting point if we are to provide truly effective help. So that readers can determine exactly what kind of help is needed, he describes an inquiry process that puts the helper and the recipient on an equal footing. These dynamics not only apply to all kinds of one-on-one helping in personal and professional relationships, teaching, social work, and medicine but also can be applied to teamwork and to organizational leadership." "Using examples from many types of relationships - doctors and patients, consultants and clients, husbands and wives - Ed Schein offers a concise, definitive analysis of what it takes to establish successful, mutually satisfying helping relationships."--Jacket
Humble inquiry : the gentle art of asking instead of telling by Edgar H Schein( )

28 editions published between 2013 and 2021 in English and Chinese and held by 1,820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We live, says Ed Schein, in a culture of Tell. Rather than trying to genuinely relate to other people we tell them what we think they need to know or should do based on assumptions we've made about them. But telling makes people feel inferior--it shuts them down. This is particularly true of interactions between superiors and subordinates, and that's where it's particularly problematic. In today's complex, interconnected, rapidly changing world hierarchy means nothing--anybody anywhere could have that vital fact or insight that could mean the difference between success or disaster. A free flow of information is crucial. Humble Inquiry builds the kinds of positive, trusting, balanced relationships that encourage honest and open interactions in both our professional and personal lives. Schein defines Humble Inquiry as "the fine art of drawing someone out, of asking questions to which you do not know the answer, of building a relationship based on curiosity and interest in the other person." In this seminal work he explores the concept of humility, looks at how Humble Inquiry differs from other kinds of inquiry, offers examples of Humble Inquiry in action in many different settings, and shows how to overcome the cultural, organizational and psychological barriers that keep us from practicing it. This is a major new contribution to how we see human dynamics and relationships, presented in a compact, personal, eminently practical way"
The corporate culture survival guide : sense and nonsense about culture change by Edgar H Schein( Book )

53 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 1,594 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Framing his chapters around the questions managers most often ask - what is corporate culture? How can I assess it? How can I change it? - Schein defines in plain terms the ingredients of corporate culture and explains how it influences the way people do their jobs. He gives readers clear guidance for evaluating their organization's current culture and determining whether it continues to be the best fit for its people, goals, and products. He also provides practical advice for effecting culture change in companies of all kinds in a format that anyone can readily understand and follow."--Jacket
Humble leadership : the power of relationships, openness, and trust by Edgar H Schein( )

14 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The more traditional forms of leadership that are based on static hierarchies and professional distance between leaders and followers are growing increasingly outdated and ineffective. As organizations face more complex interdependent tasks, leadership must become more personal in order to insure open trusting communication that will make more collaborative problem solving and innovation possible. Without open and trusting communications throughout organizations, they will continue to face the productivity and quality problems that result from reward systems that emphasize individual competition and 'climbing the corporate ladder'. Authors Edgar Schein and Peter Schein recognize this reality and call for a reimagined form of leadership that coincides with emerging trends of relationship building, complex group work, diverse workforces, and cultures in which everyone feels psychologically safe. Humble Leadership calls for 'here and now' humility based on a deeper understanding of the constantly evolving complexities of interpersonal, group and intergroup relationships that require shifting our focus towards the process of group dynamics and collaboration. Humble Leadership at all levels and in all working groups will be the key to achieving the creativity, adaptiveness, and agility that organizations will need to survive and grow."--Amazon.com

Leadership and motivation : essays of Douglas McGregor by Douglas McGregor( Book )

36 editions published between 1966 and 1983 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This readable book is a clear statement of a managerial theory that is scientific in outlook and approach, humanistic and democratic in spirit. The new leadership which the author felt to be most appropriate for the modern organization is closely reflected in his style of thought and writing: persuasive, not prescriptive; direct, not circuitous; organized, but not rigidly systematized; intensely human, not detached. He points out that the most effective, and the most equitable, course of leadership is to satisfy the higher needs of workers on all levels - for self-respect, initiative, recognition of competence - and he calls for heterogeneity and flexibility in organization
