Ethical Business Cultures in Emerging Markets (Hardcover): Douglas Jondle, Alexandre Ardichvili Ethical Business Cultures in Emerging Markets (Hardcover)
Douglas Jondle, Alexandre Ardichvili
R1,109 Discovery Miles 11 090 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Previous research on corporate cultures and ethical business cultures has focused almost exclusively on studies of multinational corporations from a handful of developed countries. This book addresses the intersection of human resource development and human resource management with ethical business cultures in the four BRIC countries, and four other fast-growing emerging economies: those of Mexico, Indonesia, South Africa and Turkey. Drawing on longitudinal large-scale survey-based studies, it compares managers' and employees' perceptions of ethical business cultures in these countries, contrasting them with the US economy. It then discusses the economic and socio-cultural context and current research on business ethics in each of these countries, including implications for research and practice. This significant study will appeal to scholars, researchers and students in business ethics, management, human resource management and development, and organization studies, and addresses issues faced daily by business executives and practitioners working in emerging market countries.

This practical guide is for anyone contemplating coaching as a career: coaches in training, coaches already trained and hoping to build a thriving business. This totally revised second edition offers step by step guidance on what to do: * What does it take to succeed as a coach? How long does it take? * Why it matters to get practice clients and where to find them * Why is it so important to think like a buyer rather than like a seller? * What can you charge? * How do you make yourself distinctive in a crowded market? * What do you need to do to attract clients? Which marketing materials and methods pay off and which are a waste of time? * How can you exploit social media? * Overcoming your fear of selling: how to sell with integrity * Going for growth: what is involved in building an even bigger business? "Jenny Rogers has the rare ability to offer the lessons of decades of experience in ways which are practical to implement and easy to absorb. This book is comprehensive - offering both high level concept and lots of important details on the kinds of things that differentiate the successful coaching professional from the crowd. Perhaps most importantly she offers proven, thorough answers to critical questions that many people would not even think to ask in setting up or developing their business." Phil Hayes, Chairman, Management Futures, UK "Another great book from Jenny Rogers. I remember using the first edition of her book very early on in my career and remain hugely grateful for the informed insights and sensible suggestions. As always with Jenny's books, a new edition does not simply mean a few typos corrected and a couple of new references. In addition to the really helpful sections I remember from the first edition (e.g. on how to manage networking and selling whilst remaining authentic), Jenny has drawn on her experience and the courage to address some of the other really difficult issues that concern new coaches. How much should I charge? How will I find my clients? What training should I do? Even Where should I coach and What should I wear? I train new coaches every year and these are the questions they ask. I will certainly be recommending Jenny's book - and drawing on it myself to help the coaches on my courses have the best possible start to their careers." Jane Cook, Managing Director, Linden Learning, UK "In a marketplace crowded with quick fixes and unrealistic promises, this book is a breath of fresh air! Drawing on the author's extensive experience, this book lays out a sober, practical approach, while also offering encouragement and inspiration. In her warm, compelling style, Jenny Rogers explores the essential steps towards building a sustainable coaching business-from improving your own coaching skills, to developing your brand, to marketing your services with integrity." Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC, Knowledge Based Coaching in the Workplace, Fielding Graduate University, USA "This book is a must read for anyone who wants to earn a living through coaching. Jenny combines natural enthusiasm and positivity with a good dose of realism by applying a pragmatic and sometimes humorous lens to the business of coaching. No matter how experienced you are in running a coaching business, there is something in this book for everyone - from pragmatic hints and tips at start up stage through to some insightful checks and balances to ensure a consistently high service from established businesses. Jenny demonstrates a real depth of understanding about the questions that will/should be at the forefront of the minds of many new coaches about to set up in business. She has generated in depth answers, pragmatic lists of best practice and sound advice. Her sound advice will help pave the way to your success as a coach." Susan Binnersley, MD h2h resources limited, UK "I must admit when I picked up this book I wondered how Jenny could improve on her original book Developing a Coaching Business, however Building a Coaching Business is the essential guide for starting, growing and sustaining a business. Tailored to coaching, it provides a step-by-step guide full of tested methods, insight, ideas and practical information, and written in Jenny's engaging style. Her facilitative approach to selling is a gift. Having come from the public sector selling was one of my biggest challenges but when I use the facilitative model I feel confident and professional. This is a book that challenges and inspires, and you will find yourself recommending it to other people, who may not even be coaches." Margaret Kelly, Executive Coach, Margaret Kelly Consulting, UK & Ireland "If those of my colleagues who decided to change their careers and set up a coaching business had got at the right time access to this book, it would have been so much easier for them. To take into consideration all the practical issues as well as read about the newest trends and most effective approaches to such areas as selling. To have a wide perspective and yet remember that the devil is the detail. Knowing all this can shorten the route to success, at the same making the expectations more realistic. It is an obvious must for anybody who wants to build a coaching business. But I would also recommend this inspiring and comprehensive book to anybody who thinks of different options in their professional life." Dorota Porazka, Vice-Pr esident of the Board, DORADCA Consultants Ltd, Poland "I strongly recommend this book. Jenny Roger addresses what one needs to know and be aware of for building and developing a coaching business. It is written in a down- to- earth, straight to the point, yet insightful and comprehensive way. Jenny doesn't avoid the uncomfortable questions, either mitigates what needs to be said and to be ponder. If you are serious about your coaching business and your coaching practice then this book is a must- have (and to pursue!!)." Ana Oliveira Pinto, Executive Coach, Portugal "This book is a must for coaches wanting business success. It gives executive coaches like me business savvy solutions to overcome things like the dread of networking. The best bit is the section on facilitative selling because it gives me a new and more authentic way to sell my services. The book is written in a warm, wise style with a wealth of practical advice and insights. It feels like Jenny is in the room coaching you - just without the coffee!" Jacqui Harper, INSEAD lecturer, Communication Coach, Author, Speaker "This beautifully written book is a must-read for anyone wanting to build a coaching business. It's chock full of wisdom from someone who's been at the top of her profession for the last two decades. I read it when starting my business and remain indebted to it but now it's been substantially updated to reflect changes in the market and developments such as social media. If you feel daunted by the prospects of setting up a company, developing a brand, selling, networking or any of the myriad skills you need to be successful then I suggest you buy this book." Mark Wakefield, Director, Vogel Wakefield, the counter-consultancy, UK "A clear, systematic and down-to-earth primer on how to start, build and maintain a professional coaching business. After many years as a coach, I still find myself inspired by many of the ideas in this book. And she commendably grasps the nettle of coaching fees, for which new coaches should be very grateful!" Clare Brigstocke, Executive Coach, Lateralshift "Jenny Rogers' earlier Developing a Coaching Business has been a mainstay for Meyler Campbell Graduates for years, but this new version is even better. It has all the crucial basics, plus vital new material on quality, brand differentiation, integrity, and being future-ready. Warm, practical and honest, the book's wealth of tips, useful checklists, and an excellent section on fees, should accelerate your business growth. From the lessons of a simple sandwich, to Enron, to coaching businesses' stages of growth, it's all here - invaluable." Daniel Burke, Chairman, Meyler Campbell

Leading a team just got easier We live in a world of teams made up of all kinds of people. We see this every day on TV, in newspapers and on the web - it might news about a winning sports team, a company's leadership team who have succeeded in buying another company or it might be a about a group of homeowners who have won a battle against a big developer. This book is aimed at helping all of us no matter what kinds of teams we might need to lead - it might be a group of people running a country, playing a sport for university, organizing a Church fete, leading a start-up company, or managing a global multinational group. All such teams have leaders, who are those individuals given the task of ensuring that their team works well together to achieve whatever goals and objectives are required. Very few if any of us will spend our entire lives without at some point leading other people even if only for a short time and in many cases we often lead others without having a formal leadership title. In seven chapters, this book will walk you through the entire process of successfully leading and managing a team, showing you the key dos and don'ts and spelling out where you need to put special attention and focus. These seven chapters cover: - How to get started with a team, exploring what a great team looks like and how it performs, and how to create a new team from scratch with individuals who bring their own habits, skills and expectations - The stages of development of a team and how a new manager can gain the respect and understanding of a team - The importance of aligning a team and setting common goals and expectations with clear agreement on a mission, vision and values. - How to create a team culture and processes of excellent communication, with clearly understood expectations, well run team meetings and discussions, and the minimizing of any conflict and gossip - How to work with remote or virtual team members where face-to-face meetings are difficult to arrange - How to identify and work with problematic and nonperforming members of your team and how to balance fairness and discipline - How to ensure that each team member's job role is clear and that the work is efficiently delegated and shared among the team members - How to grow your team through excellent training and development, including coaching, mentoring and on-thejob training - How to turn a good team into a team with a culture of excellence - How to create a self-functioning team which can operate in your absence and in which you have groomed a successor to take over from you if needed.

I see lots and lots of 'meat' in here that I'll use over and over again as I try to become a better manager. The writing style is right on, and I love the personal anecdotes." "--Steve Johnson, VP, Custom Solutions, DigitalFish All too often, software development is deemed unmanageable. The news is filled with stories of projects that have run catastrophically over schedule and budget. Although adding some formal discipline to the development process has improved the situation, it has by no means solved the problem.

In "Managing the Unmanageable: Rules, Tools, and Insights for Managing Software People and Teams," Mickey W. Mantle and Ron Lichty answer that persistent question with a simple observation: You first must make programmers and software teams manageable. That is, you need to begin by understanding your people--how to hire them, motivate them, and lead them to develop and deliver great products. Drawing on their combined seventy years of software development and management experience, and highlighting the insights and wisdom of other successful managers, Mantle and Lichty provide the guidance you need to manage people and teams in order to deliver software successfully.

Equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) have become features of organizations as a result of both legal and societal advances as well as neoliberal economic reasoning. While current research approaches frequently fall short of addressing the challenges faced in EDI research, this benchmark Handbook brings coverage of research methods in EDI up to date, and advances the development of research in the field. Bringing together well-known academics and researchers, this Handbook is a distillation of current and novel research in the field of EDI. Chapters present groundbreaking new research and methodological perspectives on international, regional and national issues, from equal opportunities and gender mainstreaming to managing diversity in legal, political and socio-economic contexts. Alongside this, the authors discuss new analytic directions to advance empirical EDI research. This Handbook will help to shape the present and future EDI discourse. The book is an invaluable addition to the current literature, particularly for students of EDI and researchers working in the fields of human resource management, strategic management and organization, and culture and change management as well as entrepreneurship and marketing.

Looking for ways to handle the transition to a digital economy. Robots, artificial intelligence, and driverless cars are no longer things of the distant future. They are with us today and will become increasingly common in coming years, along with virtual reality and digital personal assistants. As these tools advance deeper into everyday use, they raise the question-how will they transform society, the economy, and politics? If companies need fewer workers due to automation and robotics, what happens to those who once held those jobs and don't have the skills for new jobs? And since many social benefits are delivered through jobs, how are people outside the workforce for a lengthy period of time going to earn a living and get health care and social benefits? Looking past today's headlines, political scientist and cultural observer Darrell M. West argues that society needs to rethink the concept of jobs, reconfigure the social contract, move toward a system of lifetime learning, and develop a new kind of politics that can deal with economic dislocations. With the U.S. governance system in shambles because of political polarization and hyper-partisanship, dealing creatively with the transition to a fully digital economy will vex political leaders and complicate the adoption of remedies that could ease the transition pain. It is imperative that we make major adjustments in how we think about work and the social contract in order to prevent society from spiraling out of control. This book presents a number of proposals to help people deal with the transition from an industrial to a digital economy. We must broaden the concept of employment to include volunteering and parenting and pay greater attention to the opportunities for leisure time. New forms of identity will be possible when the ""job"" no longer defines people's sense of personal meaning, and they engage in a broader range of activities. Workers will need help throughout their lifetimes to acquire new skills and develop new job capabilities. Political reforms will be necessary to reduce polarization and restore civility so there can be open and healthy debate about where responsibility lies for economic well-being. This book is an important contribution to a discussion about tomorrow-one that needs to take place today.

Compiling extensive research findings with real insights from the business world, this must-read book on performance appraisal explores its evolution from the classic appraisal to its current form, and the methodology behind its progression. Looking forward, Aharon Tziner and Edna Rabenu emphasize that well-conducted appraisals combine a mixture of classic and current, and are here to stay. The book first presents a primer to performance appraisals, covering the role of management, the appraisers, and external and political influences. The authors then present ways to improve the appraisal system through training, methodology and diversification. Consequently, they outline the key questions and opportunities facing the research and business communities, including the rapidly developing technological and democratic workforce. In particular, the authors highlight the need for the creation of a "climate of performance" and innovation in research, for the betterment of both the individual employee and society as a whole. Improving Performance Appraisal at Work is a comprehensive guide for researchers in business and management, human resource management and organizational behavior. The authors cover an extensive array of issues relating to the role of employee performance appraisal, making this book an excellent advisory text for those in professional human resource roles.
