LEADING FORWARD: SUCCESSFUL PUBLIC LEADERSHIP AMIDST COMPLEXITY, CHAOS, AND CHANGE In Leading Forward, Tim Flanagan and John Lybarger provide a developmental framework and assessment tool based on four dimensions of effective leadership—Agile Learning Capability, Adept with Ambiguity, Adroit at Thinking Strategically, and Ambitious Drive to Execute. As the authors explain, these four Leadership Meta-Competencies are critical to the success of public service leaders now and will continue to be in the future. Based on the authors’ years of experience working with agency leaders at all levels of government, and the latest assessment data from multiple sources, including the U.S. Office of Personnel Management, the book is a practical resource that includes a review of the current core leadership competencies and a detailed look at the behaviors and approaches necessary to effectively lead into the future. Filled with dozens of real-life examples from agency leaders, engaging personal stories, and illustrations of successful leadership from contemporary and historic figures, Leading Forward offers a practical and effective framework for developing great leaders for the public good.

The AACC competencies were initially developed to help provide guidance in developing community college leaders because of predictions of a leadership crisis in the two-year college sector. Since their creation, the competencies have been used to direct topics in leadership development programs and to guide future leaders about what skills are critical to master. Yet scant research exists on the use of the competencies in practice or on analysis of the competencies within the changing higher education climate. This issue provides a review of the research on the competencies in the field and posits several strategies for the future use of the competencies and potential changes to the competencies. This is the 159th volume of this Jossey-Bass quarterly report series. Essential to the professional libraries of presidents, vice presidents, deans, and other leaders in today's open-door institutions, New Directions for Community Colleges provides expert guidance in meeting the challenges of their distinctive and expanding educational mission.

Let's walk! But where? How? Who with? How far? A multi-day back-packing expedition or a stroll in the park? This book covers these questions, and will take you through ten basic steps to enjoying walking/hiking/tramping/rambling. Above all, the author provides the key to successful walking -leadership. Peter Davies has led walks in Britain, France, Austria, Spain, Switzerland and New Zealand. He gives practical advice - with stories from his twenty years' experience - on achieving the pleasures of walking and avoiding (mostly) the perils.
Annie Duncan has never put much stock in true love. Sure, she loves dating, but she gets more than her share of drama working as a struggling actress—she can live without the romantic kind, thank you very much. Instead, Annie focuses her energy on her two best friends, Jen and Ginny. And now that she finally appears to be getting her big break, Annie couldn’t be happier with the way things are going. When she meets Nate during a weekend away in Vegas, she figures she'll just have an exhilarating fling—even if he is totally adorable and clearly into her. But when Annie finds herself falling for Nate, she's faced with a choice she never wanted to make. In Three Girls and a Leading Man, Annie Duncan attempts to chase her dreams and keep her heart under control. Her heart, however, may have different ideas!
The aim of Leading from Example is to help the reader to perform more effectively in his or her sphere of influence. This book is intended to stimulate reflective practice and to extend it beyond personal experience to learn from the experience of others. The process of falling for a character, becoming irrevocably intrigued and sympathetic, seems out of place in organizational life, where it must be juxtaposed with the norms of bureaucratic impersonality. But most organizations are awash with gossip and storytelling, much of it scurrilous. When people spend time talking about what is going on behind the closed doors of the management meeting, or what motivates their leaders, or speculating about the outcomes of a current change programme, they are creating fictions, and using them to conjure a place for themselves as both authors and characters in a constantly woven narrative. In Leading from example Peter Villiers teases out lessons for leadership using a diverse yet coherent set of readings from, among others: .Rudyard Kipling (Kim, Stalky & Co., Captains Courageous) .Jack London (The Sea Wolf) .Ernest Hemingway (For Whom the Bell Tolls) .Joseph Conrad (The Secret Agent) .George Orwell (Homage to Catalonia, Animal Farm, Nineteen Eighty-Four) .R C Sherriff (Journey's End)"

The contributors to this book are leaders, consultants or managers in organizations who provide narrative accounts of their actual work and daily experience. They explore how the perspective of complex responsive processes assists them to make sense of their experience and so to develop their practice. Offering a different method of making sense of an individual's experience in a rapidly changing world, this book uses reflective accounts of ordinary everyday life in organizations rather than idealized accounts. The editors' commentary introduces and contextualizes these experiences as well as drawing out key themes for further research.

The development of a brain from its simple beginnings in the embryo to the extraordinarily complex fully-functional adult structure is a truly remarkable process. Understanding how it occurs remains a formidable challenge despite enormous advances over the last century and current intense world-wide scientific research. A greater knowledge of how nervous systems construct themselves will bring huge benefits for human health and future technologies. Unravelling the mechanisms that lead to the development of healthy brains should help scientists tackle currently incurable diseases of the nervous system such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia (to name but a few), discover more about the processes that cause the uncontrolled growth associated with cancer and develop possible treatments. Building Brains provides a highly visual and readily accessible introduction to the main events that occur during neural development and the mechanisms by which they occur. Aimed at undergraduate students and postgraduates new to the field, who may not have a background in neuroscience and/or molecular genetics, it explains how cells in the early embryo first become neural, how their proliferation is controlled, what regulates the types of neural cells they become, how neurons connect to each other, how these connections are later refined under the influence of neural activity including that arising from experience, and why some neurons normally die. Key Features: A concise illustrated guide focusing on the core elements of current understanding of neural development, emphasising common principles underlying developmental mechanisms and supplemented by suggestions for further reading. Text boxes throughout provide further detail on selected major advances, issues of particular uncertainty or controversy and examples of human diseases that result from abnormal development. A balanced mammalian/non-mammalian perspective, drawing on examples from model organisms including the fruit fly, nematode worm, frog, zebrafish, chick, mouse, ferret, cat, monkey and human, and emphasising mechanisms that are conserved across species. Introduces the methods for studying neural development including genetics, transgenic technologies, advanced microscopy and computational modeling, allowing the reader to understand the main evidence underlying research advances. Student-friendly, full colour artwork reinforces important concepts; an extensive glossary and definitions in page margins help readers from different backgrounds; chapter summaries stress important points and aid revision. Associated Website includes a complete set of figures from the textbook.
