The case that I make for diversity and inclusion is not just sociological or democratic: it is a business strategy. That is the focus of this book. I developed this framework for corporations and associations. It will show you how to increase your revenues directly, through understanding the pathways that I provide, and by implementing the Big Six Action Plan that I outline, so that you can take a comprehensive and holistic business approach to diversity & inclusion in your own company. I explain how to ensure a diverse workforce at every level, how to reach a multi-cultural marketplace, and how to include diversity in your image as a way of ensuring the greatest opportunities for growth and expansion. Most savvy executives today are attuned already to the diversity of the contemporary U.S. marketplace, but with this book, you will also be equipped with all of the most current data and facts regarding American ethnic and racial diversity as it pertains to your product or service.

The CAE certificate is one of the most selective and unique credentials in business today. There are, in fact, only 4,000 Certified Association Executives, a mere 2.5% of all professionals managing associations and non-profit organizations. If you aspire to become one of them, it's an excellent ambition. I'd like to help you succeed. This book is designed to do three things. First, it seeks to explain the CAE certification and its many benefits, in the hopes that you will join me in preparing for and attaining this credential. Second, it will provide a step-by-step process for preparing for the CAE examination, strategically and comprehensively. Third, it sets out to explain how to ready yourself for the test itself, and to offer specific recommendations and solid tactics for approaching it, so that you achieve your objective and complete it, successfully and with ease. It also includes two bonus chapters based on my other books. Because Diversity and Inclusion are integral to my personal understanding of how best to manage and understand non-profit institutional excellence, this book includes a special section on D&I that will benefit every executive preparing to take this test. The other bonus focuses on new-school leadership in the 21st century, and details my framework for succeeding as a leader in a dynamic but ever-changing management landscape.

As scholars and practitioners in higher education attempt to embrace and lead diversity efforts, it is imperative that they have an understanding of the issues that affect historically underrepresented students. Using an intersectional approach that connects the categories of race, class, and gender, Diversity and Inclusion on Campus comprehensively covers the range of college experiences, from gaining access to higher education to successfully persisting through degree programs. Authors Winkle-Wagner and Locks bridge research, theory, and practice related to the ways that peers, faculty, administrators, and institutions can and do influence racially and ethnically underrepresented students’ experiences. This book is an invaluable resource for future and current higher education and student affairs practitioners working toward full inclusion and participation for all students in higher education. Special features: Chapter Case Studies—cases written by on-the-ground practitioners help readers make meaningful connections between theory, research, and practice. Coverage of Theory and Research—each chapter provides a systematic treatment of the literature and research related to underrepresented students’ experiences of getting into college, getting through college, and getting out of college. Discussion Questions—questions encourage practitioners and researchers to explore concepts in more depth, consider best practices, and make connections to their own contexts.

Large Carnivore Conservation

Drawing on six case studies of wolf, grizzly bear, and mountain lion conservation in habitats stretching from the Yukon to Arizona, Large Carnivore Conservation argues that conserving and coexisting with large carnivores is as much a problem of people and governance—of reconciling diverse and sometimes conflicting values, perspectives, and organizations, and of effective decision making in the public sphere—as it is a problem of animal ecology and behavior. By adopting an integrative approach, editors Susan G. Clark and Murray B. Rutherford seek to examine and understand the interrelated development of conservation science, law, and policy, as well as how these forces play out in courts, other public institutions, and the field. In combining real-world examples with discussions of conservation and policy theory, Large Carnivore Conservation not only explains how traditional management approaches have failed to meet the needs of all parties, but also highlights examples of innovative, successful strategies and provides practical recommendations for improving future conservation efforts.

But that isn't what Lipman says. Instead, she uses data, reams of it, to expose how the system is rigged against women. She then calls for men to join the fight to make the workplace more equal' SUNDAY TIMES STYLE MAGAZINE Women spend their working lives adapting to an environment set up for men, by men: from altering the way they speak to changing the clothes they wear to power posing. But still the gender gap persists. And once you see it - women being overlooked, interrupted, their ideas credited to men - it's impossible to ignore. But it needn't be this way. Diving deep into the wide range of government initiatives, corporate experiments and social science research Joanne Lipman offers fascinating new revelations about the way men and women work culled from the Enron scandal, from brain research, from transgender scientists and from Iceland's campaign to 'feminise' an entire nation. Packed with fascinating and entertaining examples - from the woman behind the success of Tupperware to how Google reinvented its hiring process - WIN WIN is a rallying cry to both men and women to finally take real steps towards closing the gender gap.

Frag immer erst: warum

Wie Top-Firmen und Führungskräfte zum Erfolg inspirieren

Author: Simon Sinek

Am Beginn einer jeden Erfolgsgeschichte steht eine einfache Frage: Warum? Warum sind manche Organisationen profitabler als andere? Warum werden einige Führungskräfte von ihren Mitarbeitern mehr geschätzt und andere weniger? Warum sind manche Menschen in der Lage, immer und immer wieder erfolgreich zu sein? In seinem Bestseller, der nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache erscheint, zeigt Simon Sinek, dass erfolgreiche Persönlichkeiten wie Martin Luther King Jr. oder Steve Jobs alle nach demselben, natürlichen Muster dachten, handelten und kommunizierten. Am Anfang ihres Wirkens stand immer die Frage nach dem Warum. Mit diesem Ansatz schafften sie es, bedeutende Dinge zu vollbringen und darüber hinaus ihre Mitstreiter zu inspirieren. Sich an diesen Vorbildern orientierend, gibt Sinek in seinem Ratgeber nun Führungskräften, Unternehmen, aber auch Privatpersonen einen Leitfaden an die Hand, der zum endgültigen Erfolg verhilft. Dabei erklärt er das so erfolgreiche Muster, welches dem goldenen Schnitt ähnlich ist, und auf den drei elementaren Fragen basiert: Warum? Wie? Was? Dadurch eröffnen sich dem Leser völlig neue Möglichkeiten und er wird lernen, dass die Motivierung von Mitarbeitern viel zielführender ist als ihre Manipulation! Und dies geht ganz einfach: einfach »Warum?« fragen.

Das Prinzip Dringlichkeit

Schnell und konsequent handeln im Management

Bestsellerautor John P. Kotter hat in den letzten 35 Jahren beobachtet, was Menschen tun, damit ihre Unternehmen gut funktionieren. Auf diesen Erkenntnissen basiert sein neues Buch. Hier spricht Kotter von der Dringlichkeit, permanent nach wichtigen Belangen im Unternehmen Ausschau zu halten und im Bedarfsfall so schnell wie möglich zu handeln, um ein Unternehmen wandlungsfähig und damit erfolgreich zu machen. Menschen, die ein Gespür für diese Dringlichkeit besitzen, suchen automatisch immer nach Risiken, die das Unternehmen gefährden sowie nach Möglichkeiten zur Verbesserung. Kotter erklärt, wodurch sich echte Dringlichkeit auszeichnet, weshalb sie ein unschätzbar wertvolles Gut ist und wie Manager das Gefühl für Dringlichkeit in ihrem Umfeld wecken, stärken und bewahren können. Seine Ausführungen erläutert Kotter an zahlreichen Beispielen aus der ganzen Welt.

Der Seestern und die Spinne

die beständige Stärke einer kopflosen Organisation

Wenn man einer Spinne den Kopf abreißt, dann stirbt sie. Aber wenn man einem Seestern ein Bein abschneidet, dann wächst ihm ein neues. Und das andere Bein kann zu einem komplett neuen Seestern heranwachsen. Herkömmliche Organisationen, die auf Hierarchien fußen, sind wie Spinnen. Aber nun beginnen Seesternorganisationen, das Gesicht der Wirtschaft und der Welt zu verändern. Was ist die versteckte Macht hinter dem Erfolg von Wikipedia, Craigslist und Skype? Was haben eBay, General Electric mit der Anti-Sklavereibewegung und der Frauenrechtsbewegung gemeinsam? Welche Grundsatzentscheidung ließ General Motors und Toyota zwei ganz verschiedene Pfade beschreiten? Wieso kann ein siegreich beendetes Verfahren vor dem Obersten Gerichtshof der USA der größte Fehler sein, den MGM jemals gemacht hat? Ori Brafman und Rod A. Beckström bieten unverhoffte Antworten, mitreißende Geschichten und unglaubliche Verknüpfungen. In 'Der Seestern und die Spinne' behaupten sie, dass es zwei Kategorien von Organisationen gibt: traditionelle 'Spinnen', die starre Hierarchien und Befehlsketten von oben nach unten haben, und revolutionäre 'Seesterne', die sich auf die Macht von Beziehungen unter Gleichgestellten stützen. 'Der Seestern und die Spinne' erkundet, was passiert, wenn Seesterne gegen Spinnen kämpfen (so wie die Musikindustrie gegen Napster, Kazaa und alle ihre Nachfolger vorging). Das Buch zeigt, wie alteingesessene Unternehmen und Institutionen lernen, mit Prinzipien der Seesternorganisation erfolgreicher zu sein. Der Seestern und die Spinne ist eines der seltenen Bücher, das Ihr Verständnis der Welt komplett verändern wird.
