Manager as Negotiator

#ad
Free Press #ad - This fine blend of Harvard scholarship and seasoned judgment is really two books in one. The second offers a new and compelling vision of the successful manager: as a strong, often subtle negotiator, constantly shaping agreements and informal understandings throughout the complex web of relationships in an organization.

Effective managers must be able to reach good formal accords such as contracts, out-of-court settlements, and joint venture agreements. Based on the authors' extensive experience with hundreds of cases, public and private managers, and peppered with a number of wide-ranging examples, academics, The Manager as Negotiator will be invaluable to novice and experienced negotiators, and anyone who needs to know the state of the art in this important field.

Manager as Negotiator #ad - In such situations, harvard business school professor of organizational behavior, including important relationships -- in a way that Richard Walton, The Manager as Negotiator shows how to creatively further the totality of one's interests, describes as "sensitive to the nuances of negotiating in organizations" and "relentless and skillful in making systematic sense of the process.

This book differs fundamentally from the recent spate of negotiation handbooks that tend to espouse one of two approaches: the competitive "Get yours and most of theirs, too" or the cooperative "Everyone can always win". Transcending such cynical and naive views, the authors develop a comprehensive approach, based on strategies and tactics for productively managing the tension between the cooperation and competition that are both inherent in bargaining.

Yet they also have to negotiate with others on whom they depend for results, resources, and authority. The first develops a sophisticated approach to negotiation for executives, diplomats -- indeed, attorneys, for anyone who bargains or studies its challenges. Whether getting fuller support from the marketing department, resolving disputes, hammering out next year's budget, managers must be adept at advantageously working out and modifying understandings, or winning the approval for a new line of business, and finding mutual gains where interests and perceptions conflict.

Bad Leadership: What It Is, How It Happens, Why It Matters Leadership for the Common Good

#ad
Harvard Business Review Press #ad - Drawing on high-profile, contemporary examples--from mary meeker to David Koresh, Bill Clinton to Radovan Karadzic, Al Dunlap to Leona Helmsley--Kellerman explores seven primary types of bad leadership and dissects why and how leaders cross the line from good to bad. But, according to Barbara Kellerman, this assumption is dangerously naive.

Kellerman argues that the dark side of leadership--from rigidity and callousness to corruption and cruelty--is not an aberration. The book also illuminates the critical role of followers, and sometimes even cause, revealing how they collaborate with, bad leadership. Daring and counterintuitive, Bad Leadership makes clear that we need to face the dark side to become better leaders and followers ourselves.

Bad Leadership: What It Is, How It Happens, Why It Matters Leadership for the Common Good #ad - Barbara kellerman is research director of the Center for Public Leadership and a lecturer in public policy at the Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University. Many would argue that tyrants, corrupt CEOs, and other abusers of power and authority are not leaders at all--at least not as the word is currently used.

How is saddam hussein like tony blair? Or Kenneth Lay like Lou Gerstner? Answer: They are, or were, leaders. Rather, bad leadership is as ubiquitous as it is insidious--and so must be more carefully examined and better understood. A provocative departure from conventional thinking, Bad Leadership compels us to see leadership in its entirety.
