An Entirely New Way to Look at Human Resources in the Public Sector What makes a good worker? Why do some people naturally do well at their jobs while others struggle? These questions are at the heart of the human resource (HR) profession. And while there is no shortage of theories about how people achieve success, no one has explained the entire body of HR theories. Until now. In A Human Resources Framework for the Public Sector, Dixon Southworth offers a fresh, new perspective on HR management with the first comprehensive theoretical framework for work performance, tying human resource theories, concepts, and concerns to public administration. With the introduction of the Work Performance Framework (WPF), Southworth offers a roadmap for work performance in the nonprofit and public sectors that focuses on three fundamental objectives of HR programs and services: build human resource capacity, build performance, and build community.

Think Like a General…Lead Like an Executive “At their center, great organizations such as America's armed forces are the product of great leaders. This fantastic book reveals the keys to success within the military culture, as well as relevant and practical application tools for creating strong leaders today.” —Stephen R. Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness What distinguishes strategic leadership? According to top U.S. Army generals, the difference lies in the discipline of thinking. Because the problems strategic leaders face are often multi-faceted and can involve ethical dilemmas, these leaders must move beyond thinking tactically and take a longer term, broader approach to finding solutions. Through the U.S. Army War College and other senior-service colleges, the Army teaches strategic thinking to its officers, developing some of the most esteemed leaders of our time. Strategic Leadership: The General's Art provides aspiring leaders with an understanding of the behavior and competencies that make a good strategic leader. In line with the curriculum followed by senior officers attending the U.S. Army War College, this book teaches leaders how to think strategically in a volatile, uncertain environment and thereby to provide transformational leadership and shape outcomes. With contributions from senior military leaders as well as experts in the fields of strategic leadership, systems and critical thinking, and corporate culture, this invaluable reference shows readers how to move from mid-level manager to strategic-thinking senior executive.

Dynamic factors are constantly measured and identified as contributing to business success. While energy swirls around both traditional and new measures of success, there is one stronghold that is consistently underrated - CLARITY. Clarity is an accelerating business tool, and when missed, often results in a loss of time, money, and effort. The process of clarity is being shared for the first time outside the Deutser client population. It provides an amazing blueprint for creating clarity and has been shown to improve performance, profitability, and ultimately, the viability of the company. When clarity is actively pursued it gives everybody a place to unite, creating employees who are better performing, more engaged and happier and increasingly committed. Clarity is what brings the other pieces together and provides the glue that helps individuals and organizations both survive and thrive.
