The business classic for understanding management styles and finding your own For over fifty years, Charles Handy has set the tone for leadership thinking. In this business classic, he lays out one of his most famous ideas: the four types of organizational culture, as exemplified by the Greek Gods. Culture is central to a company's efficiency and success, whether it is shaped by a Zeus-like central power or the task-oriented focus of Athena, by Apollo's hierarchical assignment of roles or the person-centred preference of Dionysus. Successful leaders know their own styles, and cultivate these qualities to create dynamic, productive teams that are top of their field.

Why Do So Many Incompetent Men Become...

KShs3,000.00 KShs2,700.00
Look around your office. Turn on the TV. Incompetent leadership is everywhere, and there's no denying that most of these leaders are men. In this timely and provocative book, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic asks two powerful questions: Why is it so easy for incompetent men to become leaders? And why is it so hard for competent people--especially competent women--to advance? Marshaling decades of rigorous research, Chamorro-Premuzic points out that although men make up a majority of leaders, they underperform when compared with female leaders. In fact, most organizations equate leadership potential with a handful of destructive personality traits, like overconfidence and narcissism. In other words, these traits may help someone get selected for a leadership role, but they backfire once the person has the job. When competent women--and men who don't fit the stereotype--are unfairly overlooked, we all suffer the consequences. The result is a deeply flawed system that rewards arrogance rather than humility, and loudness rather than wisdom. There is a better way. With clarity and verve, Chamorro-Premuzic shows us what it really takes to lead and how new systems and processes can help us put the right people in charge.

Decoding Greatness: How the Best in t...

KShs2,900.00 KShs2,450.00
For generations, we’ve been taught there are two ways to succeed—either from talent or practice. In Decoding Greatness, award-winning social psychologist Ron Friedman illuminates a powerful third path—one that has quietly launched icons in a wide range of fields, from artists, writers, and chefs, to athletes, inventors, and entrepreneurs: reverse engineering. To reverse engineer is to look beyond what is evident on the surface and find a hidden structure. It’s the ability to taste an intoxicating dish and deduce its recipe, to listen to a beautiful song and discern its chord progression, to watch a horror film and grasp its narrative arc. Using eye-opening examples of top performers—from Agatha Christie to Andy Warhol, Barack Obama to Serena Williams—and groundbreaking research on pattern recognition, skill acquisition, and creative genius, Friedman reveals the staggering power of reverse engineering and teaches you how to harness this vital skill for yourself. You’ll learn how to take apart models you admire, pinpoint precisely what makes them work, and apply that knowledge to develop novel ideas, methods, and products that are uniquely your own. Along the way, you’ll meet the culinary detective who exposes top-secret recipes, the burglar who can visit a bank and recreate its blueprints, and the celebrated artist who reverse engineered his way to the top of his profession without any formal education. You don’t have to be a genius to achieve greatness, but you do need a method for getting there. Bursting with unforgettable stories and actionable strategies, Decoding Greatness is an indispensable guide to learning from the best, improving your skills, and sparking breakthrough ideas.

Leadershift by John Maxwell Hardcover

KShs4,000.00 KShs3,500.00
Internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell teaches readers how to shift their leadership to keep innovating, improving, and influencing others in today’s fast-paced world. Change is so rapid today that leaders must do much more than stay the course to be successful. If they aren’t nimble and ready to adapt, they won’t survive. The key is to learn how to leadershift. In Leadershift, John C. Maxwell helps leaders gain the ability and willingness to make leadership changes that will positively enhance their organizational and personal growth. He does this by sharing the eleven shifts he made over the course of his long and successful leadership career. Each shift changed his trajectory and set him up for new and exciting achievements, ultimately strengthening and sustaining his leadership abilities and making him the admired leadership expert he is today. Among those leadershifts are the Adaptive Shift from Plan A to Option A, the Production Shift from Ladder Climbing to Ladder Building, and the Influence Shift from Positional Authority to Moral Authority. Maxwell gives specific guidance to readers about how to make these shifts in their own lives. Each one requires them to change the way they think, act, and ultimately lead so they can be successful in a world that never remains the same.

The Making Of A Symphony Orchestra &#...

KShs2,200.00 KShs2,000.00
The subject of leadership has been written all the years by both big and small names, in large and small prints. Why, then, would I bother to write another book on this subject? Why would one need to read this book? Perhaps in the following few paragraphs I will be able to make a case for this inspired cause and thus gain your most precious audience. "Running away from a problem does not solve it," one of my teachers said. "You must confront the problem in order to solve it." In my childhood, I learnt the value of taking responsibility whenever there was something that needed to be addressed. These were my first leadership lessons. In that case, therefore, in my study and practice, I still felt a sense of responsibility to add my little voice to this very important subject, even if doing so could only help a single individual to be inspired into becoming the person The Creator intended in him or her. This book, over and above learning leadership, helps people to identify their purpose in life and unify it with their leadership agenda with a view of leaving a timeless legacy. Life therefore becomes one adventurous journey of leadership to all who study this book. Of course, the very first person that you ought to lead is yourself and by being able to appropriately do so, you earn the right to lead others too. They, themselves, shall be willing to be led by you. In this book, I share personal life experiences in leadership in the simplest possible language for leaders at all levels to draw maximum benefit from. My innate drive to keenly and reflectively study situations from every facet of life I get involved in and my love for music found an opportunity to converge. Thus, this book uses the metaphor of orchestral music to share salient leadership lessons that would hitherto stay hidden from some people. This is not a music book. It is a leadership book. You do not have to know music in order to appreciate it. All you have to do is contemplatively tap your right foot to its beats as you drink from its priceless pot of knowledge. As life would have it, the universe is full of music. All around us is music in the sense of harmony. The Creator did not intend any chaos, but harmony in all we see and do. That is what makes music; many parts, many instruments, many participants but one beautiful piece of art that is pleasing to the ear. The same applies in all our leadership positions. We have to bring all pieces together in order to achieve the envisioned results. That is the language of life. Whoever makes the best symphony becomes the greatest leader;- the greatest director for the orchestra. It is my belief that you will enjoy the musicality in this leadership book as you dutifully mine the nuggets of wisdom that lurk within the pages into your life. The lessons you are going to learn by studying it shall forever remain imprinted in your heart and positively contribute to your immortality. I wish you all the best in your leadership endeavors and look forward to receiving feedback from you about how this book impacted your life.
