Through his own personal story and those of nine other Rangers, Barber illuminates fundamental lessons about what it really takes to win.

The East Asian economic miracle of the twentieth century is now a fond memory. What does it mean to be living in post-miracle times? For the youth of China, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea, the opportunities and challenges of the neoliberal age, deeply shaped by global forces in labor markets, powerfully frame their life prospects in ways that are barely recognizable to their parents. Global Futures in East Asia gathers together ethnographic explorations of what its contributors call projects of "life-making." Here we see youth striving to understand themselves, their place in society, and their career opportunities in the nation, region, and world. While some express optimism, it is clear that many others dread their prospects in the competitive global system in which the failure to thrive is isolating, humiliating, and possibly even fatal. Deeply engaged with some of the most significant theoretical debates in the social sciences in recent years, and rich with rare cross-national comparisons, this collection will be of great interest to all scholars and students interested in the formation of subjects and subjectivities under globalization and neoliberalism.

The case for innovation and a clear, targeted strategy for planning and implementation that will help small- and medium-sized mature enterprises (SMMEs) thrive through reinvention and renewal. In contrast to large companies, SMMEs are on their own to win or lose in the marketplace. They may lack the relative economies of scale and scope, available to large companies, to understand and invest in innovation. Often they are in a position of sustained disadvantage with no perceived path of renewal. As SMMEs approach maturity, it is common for them to choose to only maintain what they believe to be the safety of maturity attained rather than to opt for a strategy that also includes constant reinvention and renewal. But as Bruce A. Vojak and Walter B. Herbst argue, this path of seemingly least risk and least resistance can be the most detrimental to the company in the long run. The real risk is to not innovate. No-Excuses Innovation makes the case to owners, advisors, executives, and leaders—as well as those in the trenches—of the value of innovation: why it's worthy of investment and what it can do for the health and longevity of a company. This book also details how innovation, and thus reinvention and renewal, can be most effectively and efficiently implemented. With case studies and narrative examples drawn from their time in industry and the academy, the authors present a valuable strategy guide specific to SMMEs and to one of the biggest existential dilemmas they encounter.

When we think about the Christian life, we must look at all the evidence the Word of God has given us and come to the conclusion that we must examine our hearts to see the call to live in obedience through the new covenant that we have been given through Jesus Christ. The evidence is crystal clear. We are called as followers of Christ to be committed to living a life focused on Him. A faith-filled life requires us to address each area of our life that does not fit our Christian testimony and correct those areas to help experience the fullness of an active Christian life.

Captain Fraser learned most every leadership trait he needed to know as a ship captain and as a senior business executive in the first sixty seconds of his induction into the United States Naval Academy. Those sixty seconds taught the leadership traits that were evident in Admiral David Farragut’s infamous order: “Damn the Torpedoes! Full Speed Ahead!” when his attack at Mobile Bay was in danger of failing. Those sixty seconds also taught the leadership basics that were evident in Admiral Chester Nimitz when he ordered the Pacific Fleet to meet the Japanese at the Battle of Midway. Those sixty seconds can also teach business leaders how to lead. Damn the Torpedoes! is a book about how those same sixty seconds taught Captain Fraser how to have more successful military and business careers. When then Midshipman Fraser answered a question about his laundry number by saying: “I don’t know,” he learned during the ensuing push-ups that there are only four answers to a question or order: “No excuse, sir,” “I’ll find out, sir,” “yes or no, sir,” and “aye-aye, sir.” Those four answers teach the four basic traits of leadership: accountability, thinking ahead, ethics, and motivation. Damn the Torpedoes!, through personal and historical stories, shows how those four traits embedded in a sea captain can be used by business and organizational leaders to make their own careers and companies more successful. Examples from the author’s dual career experiences, the Battle of Mobile Bay, the Battle of Midway, the Battle of Cape St. George, Desert Shield/Storm, Enron, Tylenol, CNN, Intuit, and Airbnb all show how the four leadership traits are key both afloat and ashore. The book is a unique look at business leadership from a very different perspective than those taken by other books on leadership. It is a book about leadership lessons learned by ship captains over the centuries that can be applied to business. Damn the Torpedoes! is also unique in that the author has had two careers: one as Navy ship captain and the second as president of one of the divisions of Turner Broadcasting. He is qualified to speak authoritatively from experience on those leadership traits of sea captains that can be successfully used by organizational leaders ashore.

Leaders today come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and creeds. It is also quite common to use the term manager and leader interchangeably.This book is about the person who strives to take the giant step to become the Leader Coach. While certainly still a manager and a leader, the role of Leader Coach is all about the special relationship that develops between Leader Coach and Player through the art of effective communication. By developing your team (players) through the use of the Social, Performance, and Developmental Conversations, a Leader Coach can help release achievement drive and enhance performance in their players. It is also about the joy and self-actualization thatoccurs during the Journey when a Leader Coach and the Player mutually take the risk and expose their souls to one another during this evolutionary and sometimes extraordinary process. The Leadership Coaching Coefficient Triangle is presented for the leader to conduct self-analysis, to determine current and future leadership capabilities. This book is designed as a pragmatic, how-to book for the leader who is serious about building or improving his or her organization, one person at a time. Intended more as a guide, the authors share personal insights, anecdotesand experiences from both theirprofessional and personal livesthat have made them successful in these endeavors. From servant leadership and selfless giving on the part of the Leader Coach to the ownership of the change that takes place in the person being coached, Leader Coaching is both the hardest, yet most rewarding, work that a leader can engage in, and when done properly, becomes the Leader Coach's legacy.
