Bill George Authentic Leadership. Rediscovering the Secrets to Creating Lasting Value

Bill George Authentic Leadership. Rediscovering the Secrets to Creating Lasting Value

In the wake of continuing corporate scandals there have been few, if any, CEOs that have stepped forward as models of «doing things right»—except the former chairman and CEO of Medtronic, Bill George. George has become the unofficial spokesperson for responsible leadership—in business, the media, and academia. In Authentic Leadership Bill George makes the case that we do need new leaders, not just new laws, to bring us out of the current corporate crisis. He persuasively demonstrates that authentic leaders of mission-driven companies will create far greater shareholder value than financially oriented companies. During George's twelve-year leadership at Medtronic, the company's market capitalization soared from $1.1 billion to $460 billion, averaging 35% per year. George candidly recounts many of the toughest challenges he encountered – from ethical dilemmas and battles with the FDA to his own development as a leader. He shows how to develop the five essential dimensions of authentic leaders—purpose, values, heart, relationships, and self-discipline. Authentic Leadership offers inspiring lessons to all who want to lead with heart and with compassion for those they serve. Bill George helps readers answer vital questions such as: What should I do when my personal values conflict with company business values? How do I make trade-offs between the needs of my customers, my employees, and my company's shareholders? Do I really want to devote my talents to business? Authentic Leadership provides a tested guide for character-based leaders and all those who have a stake in the integrity and success of our corporations.

George Eliot’s Throbbing prisoned female souls

George Eliot’s Throbbing prisoned female souls

Criticism, since the hoary past, has been an expression of male sensibility. Woman has been treated merely as an entity concerning man either in his real or fantasy life. At a time when feminism is in the throes of a crisis because of its inherent paradoxes and the recantations of its ideologues, George Eliot has acquired increasing relevance as expression of the irrepressible female spirit transcending the artificial constraints of their male dominated social milieu. George Eliot occupies a significant place as one of the leading novelists of the Victorian era. The struggle for female self-liberation has been painfully grim and unrelenting, as the vicissitudes of the cavalcade of heroines indicates, but the gains have been considerable and feminism is today in full flower, thanks to the exploratory spade work done by George Eliot.

Creating a Crisis

Creating a Crisis

Politics and speech have always been closely linked, which is apparent in the continuous public presence of politicians around the world – and what seems like year-round campaigning. For this reason political speech is a matter of public and scholarly interest, with the focus of this book on the crisis rhetoric of American Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. Presidential rhetoric works in various ways to make a situation comprehensible for the public, help handle their fears and portray a certain reality. The created reality keeps in mind the fears of the people and works to confront these fears. This book looks into the rhetorical devices used in the speeches and applies the concept of Fantasy Theme Analysis to show what ideas and realities are conveyed in this presidential crisis rhetoric.
