Are you winning the battle but losing the war? Every leader has to deliver the goods—make budget, meet deadlines, and deftly manage people—to provide the inspirational fuel that keeps their business running day-in and day-out. But therein lies the danger of winning today's battle and losing the war—that is the long game of creating sustainable value in a volatile, uncertain world that is becoming ever-more complex and ambiguous. The greater purpose—today's number one business challenge—is winning the long game by being more strategic; developing the skills to look outside the four walls of the organization and see the world from the future back. Steven Krupp and Paul J. H. Schoemaker bridge the gap between what many see as the separate domains of strategy and leadership to show how to develop the discipline of strategic leadership in a world of growing uncertainty. While pragmatic to the core, Winning the Long Game creates vivid insights into the discipline of strategic leadership by applying it systemically through personal portraits of successful business leaders. The book profiles Elon Musk, Richard Branson, and Sara Blakely, as well as world-renowned figures like Pope Francis, Oprah Winfrey, and Nelson Mandela. What makes these strategic leaders successful is highlighted by contrasting them with others who are either mediocre or outright failures. Winning the Long Game is the must-have playbook for every leader and for any manager seeking to be become more strategic in today's topsy-turvy world.

Gute Chefs essen zuletzt

Warum manche Teams funktionieren – und andere nicht

Ohne ein gutes, verlässliches Team könnten viele Führungskräfte ihre Ziele niemals erreichen. Doch leider werden viele Teams von internen Machtkämpfen, Streitigkeiten und den daraus resultierenden Misserfolgen ausgebremst – und die Führungskräfte schaffen es dann oft auch mit Leistungsanreizen oder Belohnungen nicht, ein Team wieder in die Spur zu bekommen. Doch warum sind hier manche Vorgesetzte oft erstaunlich hilflos? Die Antwort wurde Simon Sinek während einer Unterhaltung mit einem General des Marine Corps offensichtlich. Dieser erläuterte die Tradition: "Offiziere essen immer zuletzt." Was in der Kantine noch symbolisch gemeint ist, wird auf dem Schlachtfeld todernst: Gute Anführer opfern ihren eigenen Komfort, sogar ihr eigenes Leben, zum Wohl derer, die ihnen unterstehen. Sinek überträgt diese Tradition auf Unternehmen, wo sie bedeutet, dass die Führungskraft einen sogenannten Safety Circle, einen Sicherheitskreis, bilden muss, der das Team vor Schwierigkeiten von außen schützt. Nur so bildet sich im Unternehmen eine vertrauensvolle Atmosphäre. Der Sicherheitskreis führt zu stabilen, anpassungsfähigen und selbstbewussten Teams, in denen sich jeder zugehörig fühlt und in denen alle Energie darauf verwendet wird, die gemeinsamen Ziele zu erreichen. Chefs, die bereit sind, als letzte zu essen, werden mit zutiefst loyalen Kollegen belohnt und schaffen so konfliktfreie, motivierte und erfolgreich Teams.

Prague Winter (Enhanced Edition)

Page: 480

Drawing on her own memory, her parents’ written reflections, interviews with contemporaries, and newly-available documents, former US Secretary of State and New York Times bestselling author Madeleine Albright recounts a tale that is by turns harrowing and inspiring. Before she turned twelve, Madeleine Albright’s life was shaken by some of the most cataclysmic events of the 20th century: the Nazi invasion of her native Prague, the Battle of Britain, the attempted genocide of European Jewry, the allied victory in World War II, the rise of communism, and the onset of the Cold War. In Prague Winter, Albright reflects on her discovery of her family’s Jewish heritage many decades after the war, on her Czech homeland’s tangled history, and on the stark moral choices faced by her parents and their generation. Often relying on eyewitness descriptions, she tells the story of how millions of ordinary citizens were ripped from familiar surroundings and forced into new roles as exile leaders and freedom fighters, resistance organizers and collaborators, victims and killers. These events of enormous complexity are shaped by concepts familiar to any growing child: fear, trust, adaptation, the search for identity, the pressure to conform, the quest for independence, and the difference between right and wrong. Prague Winter is an exploration of the past with timeless dilemmas in mind, a journey with universal lessons that is simultaneously a deeply personal memoir and an incisive work of history. It serves as a guide to the future through the lessons of the past, as seen through the eyes of one of the international community’s most respected and fascinating figures. Albright and her family’s experiences provide an intensely human lens through which to view the most political and tumultuous years in modern history.

A group of tourists stood there around their guide, and I became their point of reference. "You see that man over there with the baskets? A little to the right of his head there's an arch from the Roman period. A little to the right of his head." "But he's moving, he's moving!" I said to myself: Redemption will come only when they are told, "Do you see that arch over there from the Roman period? It doesn't matter, but near it, a little to the left and then down a bit, there's a man who has just bought fruit and vegetables for his family."

Chart a path to creating uncontested market space and winning the future. This collection of work by globally preeminent management thinkers W. Chan Kim and Renée Mauborgne brings together their perennial bestseller book Blue Ocean Strategy with their classic articles “Blue Ocean Leadership” and “Red Ocean Traps.” Blue Ocean Strategy, the global phenomenon that has sold 3.6 million copies and is recognized as one of the most iconic and impactful strategy books ever written, argues that cutthroat competition results in nothing but a bloody red ocean of rivals fighting over a shrinking profit pool. Based on a study of 150 strategic moves (spanning more than 100 years across 30 industries), Kim and Mauborgne argue that lasting success comes not from battling competitors but from creating “blue oceans”—untapped new market spaces ripe for growth. The book presents a systematic approach to making competition irrelevant and outlines principles and tools any organization can use to create and capture their own blue oceans. In the article “Blue Ocean Leadership,” the authors apply their concepts and tools to what is perhaps the greatest challenge of leadership: closing the gulf between the potential and realized talent and energy of employees. The authors offer a systematic method for uncovering, at every level of the organization, which leadership acts and activities will inspire employees to give it their all and a process for getting managers throughout the company to undertake these tasks. In the article “Red Ocean Traps,” the authors show how managers’ mental models—ingrained assumptions and theories about the way the world works—undermine attempts to discover uncontested new market spaces. The authors provide a framework for avoiding spaces where competition is bloody (red oceans) and moving to blue ocean spaces with ample potential.
