People-Centered Leadership (2 Book Series)
From Book 1: Too often, leaders see a 'gap' as a problem or something to avoid. In his work with leaders and organizations at growth-transition points, Scott Patchin has become convinced that the basic challenge of leadership comes down to creating and managing the gaps - those spaces between where you are now and where you want to be.

In this insightful whitepaper, Patchin outlines the three key gaps that every leader must master for effective leadership and the steps you can take to fill those gaps. He then looks at the four habits you should develop and commit to in order to successfully manage each individual performance gap.

Also included:
- Three hidden threats to effectively managing the gap
- How to take ownership of your gaps
- Steps to create an action plan
- Self-assessment

How to Improve Your Leadership and Management Skills - Effective Strategies for Business Managers
This book features effective strategies and clever techniques to help you improve your leadership and management skills. It points out that you must be a leader that people follow, keep informed, make timely decisions and take effective action. In effect you must control the activities of your organization rather than being controlled by them.

Here's what’s in the book:

* How to lead and manage people; powerful tips and strategies to motivate and inspire your people to bring out the best in them. Be the boss people want to give 200 percent for.

* How to Make a Good First Impression

* How to Motivate Your Employees in the Workplace

* How to Manage Change Effectively

* How to Deal With Difficult Employees

* Effective Business Negotiation Techniques

* How To Set and Achieve Goals

* Effective Delegating Strategies

* How To Ensure the Profitability of Your Business

* How to Create a Business Environment that Supports Growth

* All these and much much more.

My name is Meir Liraz and I'm the author of this book. According to Dun & Bradstreet, 90% of all business failures analyzed can be traced to poor management.

This is backed up by my own experience. In my 31 years as a business coach and consultant to managers, I've seen practically dozens of managers fail and lose their job -- not because they weren't talented or smart enough -- but because they were trying to re-invent the wheel rather than rely on proven, tested methods that work. And that is where this book can help, it will teach you how to avoid the common traps and mistakes and do everything right the first time.

Life Coach: How to Cope When the Going Gets Tough
How to Cope When the Going Gets Tough

However you deal with the everyday challenges of life, everyone has their crisis points – situations where their coping strategies are undermined. For example, many people find themselves set back by criticism and rejection, and feel they didn’t react effectively. When you reach one of these points, you need extra help and advice to get you through.

This book will help you handle your problems in a rational, realistic way, and you will use common sense techniques to help you identify overcome your personal vulnerability areas, so nothing can hold you back.

“People learn to be hostile, disparaging and manipulative because it works for them. These people expect you to react in certain ways to their style, because in that way they win. If you allow yourself to be sucked into their expectations, you have not only let them get away with it, but you are bound to feel frustrated, helpless and eventually your bad side of nature will reached its climax.”

Outcomes & Efficiency: Leadership Handbook
There is a revolution afoot in Government management, design and leadership.

This is your essential guide to that revolution through systems thinking, commissioning, change management and practical implementation in the public sector.

The story is told through four chapters of development that will enable you to build a resilient Government organisation that is able to radically and quickly transform: designing the system of services, partners and citizens; implementing a full commissioning model to manage the system; realising the benefits through dynamic change management; and a final chapter describing a practical example to implement the new Outcomes & Efficiency model.

This book is a journey of exploration through public sector leadership, motivation, systems thinking, appreciative design, behavioural change, nudge, culture, chaos, frogs, monkeys, elephants and even more exciting developments...

Mark Rogers, Chief Executive of Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council, says:

"Outcomes & Efficiency is a must for all of those – and I count myself amongst them – who are trying to move beyond talking about the need for radical change to actually doing something about it. It is convincingly posited that the answers lie in submitting to a systems thinking approach, not least because the design of the public sector’s future functions and forms constitute ‘wicked issues’ – challenges that are singularly difficult to solve because of incomplete, contradictory and changing information, expectations and requirements. In such a situation it would seem that it is as important to ask the right questions as it is to ask for the right answers.

And this book will help will that endeavour. Structured around the themes of systems thinking, commissioning and dynamic change management, and laced with practical examples and advice, it is a treasure trove for the curious and creative who want and need to know more about what to ask as well as what to do. It also, by implication, underlines the critical factor that will decide who has most success in this very serious game of solving the impossible – leadership."
