NYT and WSJ best-selling author Charlene Li guides business leaders deeper than ever before into the uncomfortable and ever-changing terrain of the digital era. Technology has revolutionized the very idea and nature of relationships between leaders and their followers. Yet many leaders remain stuck at arms length from those they lead and serve, relying on specialized teams to interact with customers, on their direct reports to keep tabs on how employees are doing, and on the digital natives in their organization to stay abreast of new technologies. Now, in The Engaged Leader: A Strategy for Your Digital Transformation, Li helps leaders adapt to the demands and opportunities of digital leadership. To be a true digital leader requires a metamorphosis: You must connect directly by listening, sharing, and engaging using digital technologies. This metamorphosis is not easy, comfortable, or painless - if your palms aren´t sweaty or your stomach isn´t churning, then you probably aren´t really practicing digital leadership. The Engaged Leader addresses why leaders need to master a new way of developing relationships, which begins by stepping out of traditional hierarchies; how to listen at scale, share to shape, and engage to transform; the art of making this transformative mind shift; and the science of applying the right tools to meet your strategic goals. This transformation is not optional. Those who choose not to make this change will be abandoned for those who inspire people to follow them. The Engaged Leader provides leaders with the skills and confidence they need to transform their leadership, and in turn, their organizations. The Engaged Leader also provides guidance to institutions - businesses, communities, and schools - on how to develop and nurture digital leadership. It is a must-listen for anyone who values a deeper connection between leaders and those they serve. ungekürzt. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Pratt.

The retired four-star general and best-selling author of My Share of the Task shares a powerful new leadership model Former general Stanley McChrystal held a key position for much of the War on Terror, as head of the Joint Special Operations Command. In Iraq he found that despite the vastly superior resources, manpower, and training of the US military, Al Qaeda had an advantage because of its structure as a loose network of small, independent cells. Those cells wreaked havoc by always staying one step ahead, sharing knowledge with each other via high-tech communications. To defeat such an agile enemy, JSOC had to change its focus from efficiency to adaptability. McChrystal led the transformation of his forces into a network that combined robust centralized communication (´´shared consciousness´´) with decentralized managerial authority (´´empowered execution´´). Now he shows not only how the military made that transition but also how similar shifts are possible in all kinds of organizations, from large companies to startups to charities to government agencies. In a world of rapid change, the best organizations think and act like a team of teams, embracing small groups that combine the freedom to experiment with a relentless drive to share what they´ve learned. McChrystal and his colleagues explain their process for helping organizations embrace this model. They also share fascinating research and examples from settings as diverse as emergency rooms and NASA´s mission control center. Read by Paul Michael.

Millions of employees attend some type of training or learning event during their tenure. Unfortunately, only 10 to 30 percent of what they learn will actually be applied in their work, presenting a situation referred to as a learning transfer problem. In Are You Making Money for Your Hive? authors Karie Holton and Elwood Holton illustrate how businesses can make learning really work to get real results. Focusing on learning transfer, this fable is told through the eyes of Buzz and Buster, two honeybees from different hives. Buzz uses learning to produce honey; as a result, he and his hive-mates enjoy a prosperous and productive life. Buster, on the other hand, looks around and sees plenty of honey in his hive and ignores the need to learn how to make more. Eventually, his hive runs out of honey, and nobody knows what to do. Buzz teaches Buster how to collect nectar from flowers to make honey so that he can do the hard work necessary to save his hive. Sharing a set of principles and practices to get results by applying learning on the job, this guide communicates how a strong commitment to learning transfer can make a real difference in your business or organization. ungekürzt.
