"There's a secret to mastery that you may have never heard, a single little thing that only the very best in the world know how to do. In fact, I believe it is the only thing anyone can do to gain true mastery at anything, and it's an equal opportunity principle. It can be applied to fulfill your potential in business, in sports, in your relationships, as well as your overall life. Do you want to know what it is?" In the crowd, Jason leaned forward, laser focused. Kicked off his basketball team after a season-ending fight, his only chance to play ball again was to sell enough books door-to-door over the summer to get back on the team. He never needed wisdom like he needed it now. But little did he know that the answer he was seeking was about to change his life forever... Pound The Stone is the intense and inspiring story of a young man's journey through the obstacles, defeats, and eventual victories that come while developing grit on the path to mastery. Told in the same engaging fable style as Chop Wood Carry Water, this is a deeper dive into the timeless principles that guide and inspire anyone who seeks greatness in life, and covers everything from true success, to the perfection trap, the value of failure, why courage is contagious, and why vulnerability can save your life. Pound The Stone will move you, inspire you, and hopefully encourage you to choose love and courage over fear and shame.

We are all in a fight in some sense in life. And many of us do not feel like the odds are in our favor. We look at others and believe that if we had their circumstances, then things would be different. But we rarely need, and rarely get, a change in circumstances. What we need, is to train a new normal. I have found principles to be some of the strongest guidelines in my life. During a period of extreme financial duress, I found myself thinking about principles as the ropes on a boxing ring. The ropes not only keep you in the fight, but they can propel you back in with much greater force. This book is my answer to developing real mental toughness: the ability to live according to principles regardless of circumstances. When we move in that direction, all bets are off in life.

"Monica Sharma draws on more than twenty years of working for the United Nations to present a radical new approach to transformational leadership, one that creates systems of change where everyone can engage--not just analysts and policy makers. Demonstrating that we all can be architects of a new humanity, Sharma demystifies policy-making, planning, and implementation so that everyone can play an informed and strategic part in eradicating the world's most intractable problems. Using real life examples from around the world, she shows how our innate characteristics of universal compassion, equity impulse, and human capability can create new patterns that effectively address major challenges such as gross inequality, unbridled hate, conflicts based on social identity, and the never-enough mindset of greed. Written in a straight-forward, accessible style, this book outlines a path-breaking paradigm shift that is already generating equitable and sustainable results across the globe. Radical Transformational Leadership describes how we can source our inner capacities and wisdom to manifest change that embodies universal values such as dignity, compassion, fairness, and courage. Everyone has the potential to be a leader--a person who creates a new future--through actions in society, at home, and at work. This book lays out a detailed plan for unleashing our human potential to create a new future through strategic action"--

Leadership, the practice of focusing and motivating a group or organization to achieve its aims, is a much discussed but often misunderstood concept. This comprehensive textbook introduces the subject for Masters level students. Readers are invited to make a series of metaphorical journeys of discovery, thematically organized around fundamental dilemmas within the field of leadership studies. Building on the success of previous editions, the text uses a simple map-based approach to consider dilemmas such as: Is a leader born or made? How are tensions between ethical dilemmas and economic self-interest resolved? How does a leader's desire for control balance with the need to empower members of the organization? This third edition contains a brand new chapter on leadership in sport, an enhanced chapter on creativity, and more international content. Also new to this edition is a companion website containing PowerPoint slides, revision quizzes and a tutor’s guide. This text will be essential reading for Masters and MBA students on leadership courses, and will also be illuminating for managers pursuing leadership development.

'It is hard to imagine a more enticing topic: why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed. The answers are both common sense - operational effectiveness and CEO leadership - and Japan specific - break with traditions. The lessons about leadership, in particular, have wider relevance for leaders, managers, consultants and academics.' - Andrew Campbell, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre, UK Transformational CEOs questions why some Japanese firms succeeded in the 1990s despite an economy that failed - regardless of the burst of the 'bubble' economy, a number of Japanese companies have maintained or extended their international leadership in particular sectors. The authors argue that whilst some of the reasons for successes are plain common sense - operational effectiveness and superior CEO leadership - some are Japan-specific and point to a break with traditional leadership rationale.
