An irreversible transformation is taking place in the lives of many thousands of university educated professional women in the United Arab Emirates, Oman and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Drawing on eight years' participative research and extensive secondary sources, Nick Forster introduces the first extensive study to document this development in the Middle East. This book documents the emerging economic and political power of women, and how they are beginning to challenge ancient and deeply-held beliefs about the 'correct' roles of men and women in conservative Islamic societies, and in public and private sector organisations. It also describes the vital role that women could play in the economic development and diversification of these countries, and the broader MENA region, in the future.

"Foreword by Jac Fitz-enz, author of "The ROI of Human Capital"

The importance of an organization's human capital -- its people -- cannot be overstated or overlooked, but like any other asset, it must be carefully managed and monitored. The people in a company reflect the investment not only of money, but also of the time dedicated to developing and executing projects and programs. "Investing in Your Company's Human Capital" presents five strategies for establishing appropriate levels of investment -- monetary and otherwise -- in workforce initiatives. The book addresses four overarching questions:

* How much should we invest in human capital, and is it possible to spend too much?

* Why is it important to invest (and invest properly) in human capital?

* What measures should be monitored? (the author identifies 24)

* What are the roles of the CEO and other executives and senior team members?

A practical approach to an often mishandled asset, "Investing in Your Company's Human Capital" is a valuable tool for driving any enterprise's bottom line."

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes -- both their own and those of the people they coach -- prevent individuals from reaching their potential. In this practical and inspiring book, EQ qualified trainer and coach Nicole Soames teaches you how to develop a coaching mind-set, recognize who and when you should coach, adopt a disciplines approach to coaching, learn how to manage the coaching conversation and give and receive feedback so that you can embed new ways of working. This is a fresh and innovative take on the traditional, how-to coaching manual.

Peter J. Hosie, Peter P. Sevastos, C.L. Cooper
R3,872 Discovery Miles 38 720 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

This book provides contemporary means to solve an age-old conundrum in management - do happy workers perform better? Decades of research and empirical evidence have been unable to establish a strong link between affective well-being, intrinsic job satisfaction and managers' performance. A unique methodology, fresh empirical evidence and a definitive analysis of previous theory and research are employed to support the happy productive worker thesis. The authors test a kindred idea - the 'happy-performing managers' proposition, using advanced statistical techniques. Performance is measured to a previously unachievable level. New empirical evidence is used to predict how affective wellbeing and intrinsic job satisfaction influences managers' contextual and task performance. These findings are argued to have significantly progressed our understanding of what underpins human performance at work. The book prescribes how managers' jobs might be changed to enhance or avoid a decline in happiness because managers' performance is impacting as never before on organisational productivity and the economic prosperity of nation-states. Extraordinary shifts in the global corporate environment mean managers' 'personal troubles' have now become 'public concerns'. An emerging movement to Positive Organisational Scholarship is countering such forces by developing ways to create positive human and organisational wellbeing. Happy-Performing Managers will be invaluable to academics, postgraduate students, human resource practitioners, executives and managers who are interested in gaining a deeper understanding of the factors that influence human performance in the workplace.

""A straightforward approach to the simple art of coaching conversations, while offering insight into the complexity and sophistication of coaching for those looking to take their practice to the next level."
Dr Jonathan Passmore, Independent Consultant

" "Coaching Skills "is much more than just a book containing a wide portfolio of tools, techniques and concepts, brilliantly supported by many case studies. It is a book for practitioners who will find here a profound and accessibly-presented analysis of the most important models, theories and results of research, with detailed links to coaching as well as guidelines on how to deal with the difficult situations and dilemmas faced by coaches."
Dorota Porażka, Managing Partner of DORADCA Consultants Ltd

" ""Jenny Rogers writes with enviable elegance and simplicity about the skills that coaches need. This third edition is a testament to her belief that coaches never stop learning. In this edition she shares the fruits of her recent reading and experiences. There is a good deal of new material, including a chapter on advances in neuroscience, new insights from the recent coaching literature and new models to consider. But Jenny wears her erudition lightly. She takes the reader by the hand through a complex journey, sharing the excitement of her discoveries but not overwhelming with detail. Her strong personal voice comes through in every sentence, understanding, encouraging, pragmatic. I read it from cover to cover in a weekend, and know I will be back to reread before long."
Lis Paice, NHS Mentor of the Year, 2010

" ""Jenny Roger's clear writing style, straight-forward approach and case examples allow for insight into the coaching process and a glimpse at the learning that occurs for both client and coach. This edition offers even more with enhancements to previous writing and a chapter specifically focused on the brain. Whether you are a coach - new or experienced, a manager or simply interested in learning more about what we do as coaches, this is a must have resource for your library."

" ""This book is a gem for anyone curious about executive coaching - what it is, how it works and how to do it well in practice. As a coaching pioneer and highly accomplished practitioner, Jenny draws upon her extensive experience in coaching, coach training and supervision and brings to life theory and approaches with rich case studies, humour and humility. The third edition benefits from a chapter on the fascinating emerging field of neuroscience and explores early implications for coaching. As with the rest of the book it is accessible, relevant and well researched. I consider "Coaching Skills" to be essential reading for novice and established coaches alike."
Sandra Grealy, Director of Coaching, Management Futures Ltd

" ""Among all the coaching books on the market this book stands out for its clarity and wisdom, and for its engaging and unpretentious voice. In designing a coaching course at Fielding Graduate University, I had no hesitation in making it required reading."
Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC, wildflower-consulting.com

" Substantially updated throughout, the latest edition has new material on coaching and the human brain, working with clients on their self-limiting beliefs, new models of understanding what coaching is and being a coach during the psychological stresses of a severe economic recession.

"Coaching Skills" is a popular text for coach training schools all over the world, brought to life with dozens of case studies and practical guidance, while also emphasizing the importance of underpinning psychological awareness and understanding.

This book will support you whether you are an experienced coach working with senior executives, or a beginner taking your first steps on the journey to becoming a master-practitioner. The book answers questions such as: Are there really boundaries between coaching, therapy and training, or is it all more fluid than many people acknowledge? Which tools and techniques pay dividends every time and which should you avoid? What are the magic ingredients that determine whether the coach-client relationship works? Why are goal-setting and questioning such important skills for any coach and how can you acquire them? How as a coach can you work with clients to make truly transformational changes in their lives?

Working in the field of expatriate compensation is extremely complex. Designing and administering appropriate pay levels and rewards for a globally mobile workforce present multi-faceted difficulties and challenges for all organisations and international consultants. Not only must we deal with the technical exercise of calculating and equating quality-of-life standards for mobile employees, but we must also address the psychological issues of transferring employees from one culture to another sometimes vastly different one. There is a lot at stake here: from an organisational productivity and cost perspective all the way through to employee performance and motivation. Without question, successfully addressing and resolving all of the quantitative and qualitative issues and concerns with mobility are what separates premier global human resources professionals from the average players.

Dr Bussin’s latest book, Expatriate Compensation, is an aggregation of his extensive experiences working in the field. He and his cadre of expert authors comprehensively cover every aspect of dealing successfully with international assignments and the mobile employee: from the reasons to go global to setting appropriate market-based pay rates, tax implications, recognising and rewarding performance and dealing with employee motivational issues. Moreover, Dr Bussin has the gift of taking this very complex subject matter and distilling it so that it can be easily understood and absorbed. Indeed, all of the information in the book is presented in a practical, straightforward,and real-world manner.

Connect, engage, motivate, and inspire using top coaching techniques Coaching Up! is about inspiring those who matter to you to achieve peak performance. Whether you are a coach, a business leader, a civic activist, a teacher, a counselor, or a parent, this book will offer you a powerful, highly effective way to connect to the people you care about and move them forward toward their best selves. In sports, coaches have developed ways of connecting with their players quickly in the "heat of the battle," inspiring them to perform to their fullest potential and "leave it all on the field." Interestingly, although these techniques have not been codified, great coaches have independently developed remarkably similar models. This book aligns these techniques and distills their essence into a fundamental skill set that anyone can use to connect with, support, and inspire his or her colleagues, teammates, friends, and family members. At its foundation, great coaching is based on a solid set of techniques that can be applied to all areas of life. Essentially, those skills boil down to forging authentic connections, providing genuine support, and offering concise direction. While our everyday pressures may be less intense than those of a championship, the long-term game is even more important. Why not borrow from the best to develop the skills and abilities to win every day? * Inspire and motivate people to higher performance * Improve communication in high-stakes situations * Be more effective both professionally and socially Getting inside the way great coaching works gives you an unparalleled glimpse at the core of inspiration. A great coach can make the difference between a mediocre player and a world champion. What would that difference look like if you could inspire every colleague in your business? Everyone who matters to you in your personal life? You can be the source of empowerment and motivation that helps the people around you reach higher, go further, and achieve more. Coaching Up! gives you the game plan and shows you how to run the plays.
