  • "A Key Resource for Any Change Leader"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The author opens this book with a discussion of the common errors people make in trying to implement organizational change. He then goes on to counteract those errors with his eight-stage process for implementing effective and sustainable change: 1) Establishing a sense of urgency; 2) Creating the guiding coalition; 3) Developing a vision and strategy; 4) Communicating the change vision; 5) Empowering a broad base of people to take action; 6) Generating short-term wins; 7) Consolidating gains and producing even more change; and 8) Institutionalizing new approaches into the culture. The first four stages are intended to defrost a hardened status quo, the next three introduce many new practices, and the final stage grounds the changes into the corporate culture and helps them stick. This book is a comprehensive approach to change management and highly recommended for anyone undertaking a major change effort within an organization.

    The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask About Your Organization, Peter Drucker, 2008. These five questions are essentially an organizational assessment, and although they are directed toward nonprofits, they can be used in any type of organization. The five questions are:

    1. What is our mission?
    2. Who is our customer?
    3. What does the customer value?
    4. What are our results?
    5. What is our plan?

    These five questions weave together a process of reflection an organization can undertake to determine its current reality and chart a future course. For those interested in further inquiry, Drucker lists a number of additional questions for additional exploration.

  • "Sustainability Through Systems Thin..."

    Overall

    Although this book is specifically about sustainability, in a broader sense it is really about how to bring systems thinking into our institutions and into our global society. The revolution that the authors refer to is twofold: it is focused on our global environmental impact, and it is focused on the change in thinking that needs to take place in order to minimize that impact. Three key behaviors will create this shift in thinking: seeing systems, collaborating across boundaries, and moving from a problem solving mindset to one of creating the future. The book offers some great examples of how we got into our current predicament and companies that are starting to apply systems thinking to help move "beyond the bubble," as it is referred to in the book. Scattered throughout the book are sections called "Toolbox," which offer a number of exercises and activities that organizations can undertake to begin to address the issue of sustainability. This book is a great resource for any organization looking to do more than pick the low hanging fruit when it comes to sustainability.

    Would you listen to Give and Take again? Why?

    I'll be listening to this book again, at least once. I will be putting time into some changes based on the compassion fatigue concept and the lek concept -- really new ideas for me.


    Any additional comments?

    The idea that people don't burn out due to overwork but instead underwin -- I'm going to be putting that into action right away.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is a great resource and starting place for anyone considering the effect that seeing bullies in action would have on everyone around them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The sections detailing the harm done to abused people were cringe inducing and were often very difficult to listen to. The most dramatic part of the exchange was how third parties will pull back from a bullied person to distance themselves from the situation.

    Runnette does the impossible in this book and makes a book on strategy interesting. It's amazing how stories and anecdotes can make all the difference. By highlighting some funny examples of bad strategy, good strategy becomes more and more obvious in contrast. Looking forward to future books from Runnette.

    Developing and implementing a strategy is the central task of a leader, whether the CEO at a Fortune 100 company, an entrepreneur, a church pastor, the head of a school, or a government official. Richard Rumelt argues that the heart of a good strategy is insight - into the true nature of the situation, into the hidden power in a situation, and into an appropriate response. He shows you how insight can be cultivated with a wide variety of tools for guiding your own thinking.
